i think that it is exactly the lack of a seconds hand, or markers, or date..... that is what i find appealing about the 112.
all my previous watches have had some kind of extra, be it a second hand sub dial, a date, a second time zone function.... i think it would be nice to try something different. a clean, simple, elegant, 2 handed watch. thats what im thinking at the moment anyways.
I agree a simple clean watch should be part of any collection but to me a second hand is what defines a mechanical watch. It's the sweeping motion that I appreciate. On some watches the more visible the second hand (blue, red) the better.
