I really like the sub dials on these.

That's a really beautiful watch.

Arkane - I like that a lot.  Strap choice really flatters it too, I think.

 

Helloms - that's the Meister Chronoscope, right?  I think (re. OM's previous question) this is one of those that uses a Seiko movement (the "Meister" and "Erhard Junghans" I've read is correct) - do you know if that's right?  +1 to CKDR's comment on the subdials.  It's a great shape and those smooth sunken dials really emphasise it.  A lot of good value from Junghans it seems; tempting!

 

Flake - if you're out buying a baller suit, I guess there's no need to be shy!  That's a lot of bling. :)

And another nice Junghans - I dig the thin bezel all-dial look.

This is a great watch that I like a lot, it is the reference 884.475/195
(First digit 8 means stainless steel, 84 indicates the UG calibre designation 84 (Lemania movement), 475/195 indicates it is the white dial combination with silver markers/hands and black counter subdials. When new this watch list price was 2490 SFr, which was about the same as the cost of a Rolex back then.

As you can guess, I'm a bit of a Universal Geneve geek. Thanks for sharing! :-)

Geek?  Heck no - you obviously know your stuff - and certainly more than I did about my own watch.  Thank you!

Thank you RogerP. They also made this watch with tachymeter bezel & subdials in burgundy and in blue, as well as black. The burgundy is quite unusual and very nice, would go very well with burgundy shoes ;-)

This watch came with bracelet or leather strap options. The bracelet option was more expensive. There was also solid 18k gold case, and 18k gold/SS two-tone options. :-)

That's lovely, Roger.  This might be heresy re. certain celebrated Daytonas and the like, but I'm not a big fan of "panda" subdials.  This, however, is just peachy.
