    And FWIW, I prefer, and own, the rose dial in 35mm.

    Obviously the lugs are quite different on the Orion vs. the Tangente, and I would recommend (as always) if you can, then definitely try on the wrist before you buy. I think if you're a larger guy overall, or just have bigger wrists/forearms, then 38mm *could* be a better choice.

    Agreed that the 35 is the more classic size and more....proportional, if you will.

    I'm expecting to see more Nomos watches posted here in the coming months.

    ^+1 to that. I'm not sure there is another brand or line of watches where I have more of a disconnect between my feelings of pictures vs having it on my wrist. And that goes both ways, some I've loved in pics but they looked awful on my wrist, and others, like the Metro, I wasn't a fan of in pics but loved on the wrist.

    I love the blue dialed Milgauss with the green crystal. So hard. The rest are just ok imo.

    Ha, that's the only one I dislike. The white is ok, but the black is quite nice.

    Want Lange. Now. And jeepers, that's one bold jacket/shirt combo. Respect. Not sure they're ready for that in Glashutte.

    With a Nautilus on the wrist, I can execute a variety of largely unnecessary acrobatic moves to swiftly attend to one of my daughters' potty needs.

    Nice moves. Was there a third photo in the series - catches foot on rail, huge faceplant?! Usually when I try to execute a move like that that happens to me...

    Let's just say that this ONE snapshot captured the INTENDED move "in the best way possible." :)

    No watches were harmed in the making of this movie. I hope.
