For the tank, consider a JLC.
But I don't
want a cheap alternative to the Piaget. I find the comparison of the Piaget and the Nomos curious, as they're not even vaguely similar; the Piaget is an austere, ultrathin design in white gold, while the Nomos is a thick, Teutonic design in steel. They are neither similar in aesthetics nor price point.
It is good to know that the Nomos is a good watch. They are sold at a number of shops in Japan. It looks like something a friend of mine could get quite excited about for the price. For me, however, the aesthetics leave me cold.
As for the JLC Reverso, I also want to get a Duo, since I basically have to pay attention to two time zones on a daily basis, but it's not a matter of that or
