Nice! I put through an order for a Nomos Orion just a few days ago. Wasn't planning on getting it just yet, but the price will almost certainly shoot up next year due to the GBP:EUR exchange rate... Should arrive in a few weeks.
I have also noticed the Orion, looks like a nice dayly wearer
Here is my current favourite that gets worn pretty much every day. I posted this watch... but a different picture a few months ago. I plan to make another watch purchase in the next month... so hopefully this one will get a little rest every now and again
- great watch, I had it on a navy croc or NATO. Changed the whole look!

Nice. Is it the 40mm version? Any pictures of the movement?
Thanks. It's the manual wind version with date, which is 38.5mm. Like all Nomos, the Club wears larger than its size, though not to the extent of the Tangente/Tangomat type. The auto sans date is the 40mm one and the auto with date is 41.5mm. I was fortunate to be able to compare all 4 sizes and you need a big wrist for those auto models! Thanks to Nomos' Beta movement placing the date ring around the mechanism, rather than on top of it, this watch is only a fraction of a millimetre thicker than the non-date 36mm version - giving it even better proportion. It wears very flat and is thus very comfortable.
I opted for the steel caseback, which on the one hand is a shame since Nomos movements are very nicely finished, but on the other hand more appropriate to the type of watch IMO - and avoided more months of waiting.

Nice watch - what's the manufacturer? I can't make it out from the pic...
