Thanks guys. Yeah it was great to grab a NOMOS after finding out the Zurich Weltzeit didn't fit my wrist well.

No unfortunately, it was a mad house. I had repair specialists help me as it was all hands on deck for the sale.

Liking the NOMOS - congratulations to you both. The more I see them, the more they have grown on me. The Bauhaus aesthetic just really appeals to me. Do you find that the Orion wears true to size or large (given the slim bezel)?

For NOMOS I find it more TTS than some of their other models because the lugs curve to follow the wrist more m. In general they do all wear a bit large because of the bezel and lugs though. I had issues with the Zurich models because of the lugs which was disappointing.

I'm really wanting to pick up a Nomos Orion... And that picture set me over the edge. Does Nomos tend discount at all at AD's? Does it depend on where I go?
post #29932 of 48312
It's tough to say. I hit an inventory clearing event. I know when I was searching I had better luck contacting German AD's who were willing to remove VAT as NOMOS's pricing model in the US includes VAT and exchange rate risk. I hear the NOMOS dealer in Austin is good to try.

Congrats DLJr. Great looking pair. Sounds like a great opportunity. 35 off Omega is pretty good these days with their new discount policy!

Nice pick ups and nice discounts too. cheers.gif

Might have to delay BLNR plans until next year. musicboohoo[1].gif but we shall see.
post #29935 of 48312
Thanks!

Are you having trouble sourcing the BLNR? But sometimes the delay makes the eventual purchase that much more enjoyable.

Is that an IWC Portuguese on Frank Underwood's wrist? I really don't think it fits his station. It's growing to be a problematic distraction when I watch the show.

A very TWAT sentiment! :)

Having trouble staying responsible with spending shog[1].gif

Not that they're plentiful locally, but one could be sourced with a reasonable wait if any.

That said, if I had to buy one, I'd almost certainly go for one of these big crazy moons, because it's so different to anything else.  So inherently, it's likable,  Practically, it's not so buy-able.

Just bought a vintage Rolex Oysterdate for myself (which will arrive soon), to go along with the Rolex I just bought for my wife (which arrives tomorrow). Pics of the latter when it arrives tomorrow, wrist shots (of the both together) will have to wait until May.
