What's with peoples' ignorance of 'standard' movements? The assumption that they're crappy is completely flawed. They're 100% tried and true.

Nice!

I put through an order for a Nomos Orion just a few days ago. Wasn't planning on getting it just yet, but the price will almost certainly shoot up next year due to the GBP:EUR exchange rate...

Should arrive in a few weeks.

I have also noticed the Orion, looks like a nice dayly wearer

Nice choice - which face version of the Orion are you getting?

- great watch, I had it on a navy croc or NATO. Changed the whole look!

I went for the white face with silver hands/markers:

I don't have that kind of money - I am but a kid...

Plus they're huge! (For me, anyway.)

Nice. Is it the 40mm version? Any pictures of the movement?

I will throw mine in the ring. It was a wedding gift from my wonderful wife (handpicked by me of course):

Thanks. It's the manual wind version with date, which is 38.5mm. Like all Nomos, the Club wears larger than its size, though not to the extent of the Tangente/Tangomat type. The auto sans date is the 40mm one and the auto with date is 41.5mm. I was fortunate to be able to compare all 4 sizes and you need a big wrist for those auto models! Thanks to Nomos' Beta movement placing the date ring around the mechanism, rather than on top of it, this watch is only a fraction of a millimetre thicker than the non-date 36mm version - giving it even better proportion. It wears very flat and is thus very comfortable.

I opted for the steel caseback, which on the one hand is a shame since Nomos movements are very nicely finished, but on the other hand more appropriate to the type of watch IMO - and avoided more months of waiting.

Nice watch - what's the manufacturer? I can't make it out from the pic...
