I am the Batman!

There are some BLNR floating around but this one is mine. I'm in love.











I'll take some better pictures soon (again and again lol).

And now for something completely different. It's crazy and I love it.

I've seen the Dietrich models on Gnomon and I'm still unsure about wether I like them or not! Still, they are interesting to look at, what bugs me the most is the splash of colors!

Congratulations on the "kop"!

The splash of color is what completes it for me.  I was deciding between this one and the OT-3, but the tamer color hands on the OT-3 made it seemed like the visibility would be impaired.  The hands on this one always seem like they are glowing even in the daylight.

48mm long x 46mm wide.  Lugless, pass through strap design that actually curves down so there no hint of hanging over. 13.7mm height.  Wears smaller than the size would make it sound, but its definitely not a delicate presence on the wrist.  Just a littttttttttle different than my other watches.

 

Here is a profile view:

Yes. Quite the change of pace!

Enjoy.

Sidebar, there are tons of perfectly legit watches being sold on the second hand and gray markets without boxes or papers. Usually the original owner tossed them, thinking they were useless, and then sometime down the road they unload the watch to a dealer, and then they find themselves wishing they kept the box and papers. Advantage is that is usually shaves a bit off the price when the watch is being sold naked.

The lack of boxes/papers does not indicate that the seller is someone you should be wary of necessarily, it indicates that the original owner made a poor judgement call in tossing them.

If a watch you like is being sold naked, make sure you can verify its legit, the same way you would a watch with box and papers from a non AD because those can faked just as well as the watches themselves. Either from your own knowledge, or through the opinion of someone you trust. And make sure you are getting the appropriate price for a watch only deal, and you are fine.

Hi everybody!
