Yeah, I'm not getting the draw, but I also don't know much about them. Do you like them because they aren't well known? Do you like their look? Do you like independents?
Help us, help you.
But you do seem drawn to Habring2, so perhaps there should be less listening to us, and more going on what you seem to be drawn towards.
I like the small company aesthetic with a lot of handwork rather than a large company. Sort of like choosing a small luthier to hand make a guitar instead of buying a Gibson or Fender. Gibson and Fender makes some great guitars, but I am drawn to the little guy.
I also love their very clean look. I don't like clutter.
I am open to alternatives whether new or used, but the Habring2 watches are very appealing.
Maybe it would help if I share what I DO like... numbers only at 12, 3, 6 and 9 at most. Clean, easy to read dial, conservative with maybe a flash of something interesting like a chronometer, but done subtly.
This JLC. I like how they were able to fit so much without appearing cluttered. If I were to nitpick, I don't care for the gold markers/hands. I would prefer a monochromatic look. And it is 34mm, which seems small.
This Rolex (yes, I know I said Rolex doesn't appeal, this is an exception). Again, clean, uncluttered, timeless (pun intended).
