    Yeah I did wonder. I don't rate the Nomos value proposition quite the same at precious metal prices.

    I get that Nomos offer outstanding value for money, I just dont like the way they look. None of them. Which is really a shame...

    I used to have the older 36mm hand-wind club. Terrific little watch with exceptional legibility.

    Yes, I get that the looks aren't for everyone. Though I can't see what's not to like about the Club model. :)

    The thing is that no other manufacturer in their price range seems to be able to offer as legit of a watch, and their customer-friendly service policy is one of the best in the industry.

    We'll see what else they come up with over the years, but they certainly have a distinctive look that they stick to.

    that club is gorgeous RogerP, I had the automatic version in my cart for about 5 minutes.. While it doesn't necessarily break the bank at $2400-2500 or so, I don't really need another watch right now, so I can't justify laying down that kind of dough. But it's damn tempting..

    Modern sports watch perfection IMO. Absolutely love how this looks and wears.

    would have to agree. I think the new no date sub is one of the nicest offerings. Perfectly balanced and symmetrical IMHO.

    Okay, you guys are just piling on now! LOL.

    Great looking tuna, though.

    So .... since I'm not a member of the Sub Club (yet!) ... I will counter with a pic of this humble, but reliable Citizen Nighthawk. One of my favorite "affordables". It's powered by sunshine, and comes with a slide rule calculator that I have used more often than I can count :D

    ^ Levitating? :lol:

    It's sitting inside the watch bracelet, which is why it's lifted up at the bottom end.

    Was a present years ago. A Mont Blanc pen, so I assume a pen store in Sydney somewhere.

    Smashing watch! I also like the German companies Muhle Glashutte and Archimede. Styling, affordable and not as insanely pricey as their Swiss counterparts.
