I fear that this is a slippery slope. I am already saving for a moon phase and I think the Due Ore is the best GMT design I have seen, so that may be my third.

LO is a genius!

I need a NATO strap for a sport Omega, could someone point me in the right direction. There are a ton of cheap imitations lurking around, where do you go for the good stuff? Many thanks, R.

Are there guys who buy multiple versions of the same OuJ watches, but in different color schemes? I could see having a really colorful one and a balckout version, for example. The problem is that for watches like the annual calander and moonphase, you have to keep ot wound all the time or it is a PITA.

I plan to wear the annual calendar during the day, the moonphase in the evening, and the dual time when traveling outside my local time zone.

Hardly. I can't compare to many posters in this thread. And it will take me a couple of years to save for the next two.

I like your chosen colour scheme, Scott.  Congratulations!  Seems they don't charge any extra for choosing your own combination of colours?  Anyway, you chose well I think!  I don't know how long it would take to get used to reading that date, though.  Personally, I'm rather drawn to the moonphase. :)

Congratulations.  Yes, must be careful of slippery slopes......

Can't wait to see/hear your review on this. I'm very intrigued by the company.. Congrats on a very cool pickup. First time I've read someone getting one of these pieces.

I'm still wondering if you're yet in whatever lies at the bottom of yours, or still careering towards even more extraordinary additions. :)

I think the counter clockwise day and month would really screw with me for a while as well. And while I find the designs of OuJ interesting, I'm not sure I find them practical (but I guess after a while you adjust). Though I will say I do find myself checking out the moonphase quite often as well. That said, it would be well down on my list of watches as this would be more of a fun watch and I'm not sure how much wrist time it would actually see for me.
