    @steveyoo1983 do you sell more automatic or manual Nomos timepieces? How often does one have to wind the manual versions?

    Also, those Halifaxs are wonderful looking.

    I sell the manual more but automatic (Neomatiks) are definitely catching up lately.
    I like the old school charm of the manual and I 'try' to wind them every day (43 hour power reserve).

    Is it bad for the timepiece if I forget to wind and the power reserve exhausts itself? I don't really trust myself to regularly do this.

    I was very happy to hear that a nightshade Dover was making an appearance in the spring. I had been thinking about that shoe for a long time and quickly put a deposit on my size. Great choice Steve!

    So I can better assist you,
    Which size do you take on the 82 last? Also which size do you take on the Alden Aberdeen?


    I can always order the Halifax for you in UK6 without the MTO surcharge. The process will take apprx 5-6 months and we can start the process with half deposit.
    Also, which U tip are you referring to? Dover in Nightshade? Same deal here, I can order one for you in UK6 with a half deposit :)

    Hi @steveyoo1983

    Is there a difference between Whiskey Shell and Bourbon Shell? I assume they are the same but just curious?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Assuming your 82 UK8.5 is a non-loafer shoes, and more imporatantly seeing that you wear US9D on Aberdeen,
    I think you will do well in UK8 for this unlined loafer :)
    Just in case if you need to exchange them half size larger, I should have an extra pair of UK8.5 for you then.
