My new Sinn 556. The crappy camera doesn't do the dial justice. It looks like glossy black liquid. I'm going to try it on a brown leather or burgundy cordovan strap.

If you are talking about my lum-tec just go to lum-tec.com

You can get any of the watches custom from him. He'll add lume, change the color of it, put on a phantom crystal, etc.

looks nice, but it might be more comfortable on your right wrist. doesn't the crown bulge dig into your hand?

^ its supposed to be worn on the left, as right-hand wristwatch wearers have the destro series made for them. though I think he's wearing it a bit tad loose there.

There's not a watch in the world with as much contrast as my new phantom m1. It has a completely polished case and 24mm bracelet yet has a phantom (tinted) crystal and black face. I use it to check my teeth after eating . I know this is a horrible pic but my new camera is in route

Watch Noob Question: For automatic watches which have a winding feature but no power meter, is there any way to know when it is fully wound?

Actually there is. Automatic watches have an overwind protection mechanism that lets the wheel slip through a ratchet when the main barrel is fully wound. If you listen very carefully, you'll hear a different clicking sound when you turn the crown after the watch is fully wound. It's rather faint but once you hear it once, you'll know what I mean

Roughly, how quickly does an average watch get to the fully wound point? If I turn the knob about 20 times, is it likely to be fully wound? 40 times?
