I like that vintage Daytona; the patina is lovely and adds so much character. I've come to more fully appreciate the vintage Rolex thing in recent years, the more I see well-kept examples in the flesh and the more photos that I see like this one.I don't think I was necessarily thinking of buying a black-dialled two-hander; it was more that I hadn't really thought about them too much until I read the Bolshoi article, then started to do a bit of research. I suppose with...
Just getting caught up with TWAT as we've had visitors. Reverso Easter Monday: I love the way the blued hands catch the light under different conditions. The sun is finally shining in Escocia and we've been out in the park: Because of where I live, we need to be reminded when golfing is not permitted (see sign):
Lovely Lange and the Speedmaster 1969 isn't too shabby either!
Belligro & Dino: Nice Daytonas! The creme de la creme of sports chronographs. Now one of you just needs to kop one in rose gold! Speaking of black dialled watches, what are TWATers thoughts on black dialled dress watches? I recently came across an article of the AP Jules Audemars Extra Thin Bolshoi limited edition, and that got me thinking about black dialled ultra thins. They are relatively uncommon but nonetheless there are a few (rare) but stunning examples: AP JA...
It's a cool idea, but I wonder if it might be a bit too narrow a topic to really have a strong readership? Perhaps it might make a nice feature on an existing website or blog? Perhaps you could approach existing bloggers/WIS writers, rather than going solo?
Not the best lighting, but it's Reverso day again.
That's a small altar?
Got it. I was just curious, because like you, I've admired NOMOS watches from afar but never enough to buy one yet. Never mind the fact that I'm trying hard to stay on track for my next (big) watch acquisition. The Zurich Worldtime has been on my radar as have the newer blau/braun-dialed Zurich watches, but I hadn't seen the Metro until you posted a pic of it here.
I kinda like it. Is the off-centre blue/red/white dial between 12 and 1 o'clock the "Gangreserve"? What attracts you to this one relative to other NOMOS offerings? I quite fancy the Zurich blaugold or braungold myself. The chocolate dial of the braungold is very warm:...And for the price, they have finished the movement quite well:
As a bit of an aside, as a PAM collector, any thoughts on the new PAM 560 (Luminor base with new in-house P5000 hand wound movement)? Read a review of the new in-house Luminors here and was curious. I especially liked the titanium PAM 564. I'm secretly hoping that the narrower profile of the new P5000 watches may mean that the 44mm cases won't swamp my 6.75" wrist. Or may be I should wish otherwise...
