At this moment I'm looking at my C900 mono pusher and thinking it needs a companion. Only a significant lack of funds prevents me pre-ordering one.
I think the £100 per month under the mattress might be my only chance at this rate.

I share your thoughts. Seems impeccable taste is found in Berkshire. Can someone remind me in which county CWL is based?

Ha ha. :-)

In all seriousness, this watch has caused me a bit of a problem as I was previously set on a Tudor BB before the end of the year as a reward, and now I just 'had' to add this World Timer to an already short list.

Only the minor challenge of my Wife wanting to move house in the new year stands in the way of watch utopia. I think I need some magic beans or a miracle.

I'm in the same boat. Buying a new house and doubling my monthly payments. My wife is forcing me to sell everything that winds up and ticks!

For those brave enough have a look at Bashomatsuo watch reviews. Have a look at the C6 FLE Kingfisher video :shock: :shock:
Haha! Yes, I did stress test that watch with 134m drop. :shock:

While I don't fly much at all (maybe only between 2 different timezones), I still find this watch amazing. I wonder how Johannes Janke did to the movement to allow the red dot to move cities to show the "home" time.

As far as we are aware the "dot" is a decorative feature , not actually linked to the time-keeping mechanism of the watch

The. Dot is on the same wheel under the dial that shows the Location abbreviation at the top.

Had my heart set on one of the last blue Speedmaster day -dates ( henceforth only in black or silver ) until I saw this. I can't justify it because I have a Harrison GMT but I really fancy it......but wonder whether I want it as a 'boy toy' or as a serious watch. Hmmmmm. There's a trend here of guys who want to OWN rather that USE this watch.....like me!
Really torn for my Christmas 2013 pressie to me!

Aye it's all dots on a disc as it changes with each city location, smarter than a brain pie

I feel the rise, but it is a beautiful watch.
I hope someday to have one. I also hope that day does not take long.
