I love the 103.

On an unrelated point, on another forum I am actually engaged in a discussion with a fellow who claims that Oris is "just as good as Patek. " Le sigh. When will I learn to recognize a pointless venture?

God that ROO Scuba is spectacular. I posted here a few months ago about how much I loved it. Congrats on the pickup. I hope you get the bracelet for it - if you are going to get an AP, it is a crime not to have one.

About a week ago I was about to order the Nomos Tangonat GMT Plus....then got cold feet

 

I still love the watch... but I also like the zenith open chronomaster

 

they are completely opposite watches.

 

II have an old, 10 years, omega speedmaster and want a dressier watch to go along with it

 

Will I get tired of the simplicity of the Nomos....or will i get tired of the open design on the chronomaster?

 

And just for kicks, i like the zenith dualtime as well

 

ha.

 

I come to pick thy brains....

 

I should be ordering within the next week..which, I dont know

I dunno. I like Nomos but at that price you could pick up a slightly used JLC or a Portugese.

Only you can answer that question. How can you expect strangers on the internet to make a decision that should take into account your taste, budget, circumstances, etc??

Among 103s, the Klassik and the basic model with the high acrylic dome are my favourites. The Klassik is an excellent example of their no-BS philosophy (47mm Singaporean-boutique abominations excluded) and embodies the classic pilot's chronograph while adding a bit of elegance with the starburst-finished contrasting subdials. It's a great-looking watch and the company has some legit history, having made quality pilot's watches in Germany since 1961.

I respect the way Sinn does things, especially after opting for a long layover in Frankfurt to visit their HQ and factory. I also appreciate that they're an independent company; that still means something to me. I recently wore its more-austere 356 cousin for a beach-party weekend and it reminded me how useful a basic non-oversized pilot's watch is, especially one that has good water resistance. It was my first half-decent watch, so there's definitely some sentimental attachment involved. But it's stood the test of time well, and I admire its functional/honest design and construction.



So, yes, I would gladly wear the 103 Klassik as well.

What you might expect on A..C and as you said it was a necro thread.

I was able to work out a sweet deal that ended up costing me nothing out of pocket so it was almost impossible to say no smile.gif

 

What did you trade for this bad boy? Congrats! I'm simply curious.
