I share your feelings on Nomos. Amazing watches, but the bauhaus designs do nothing for me. I kept wanting to like them but never could.
Same. They just leave me cold. They feel too austere and well, cold, to me.

Rolex @ crown took my name down for a 116618, no problem. I think it tends to be a case of feet on ground and you get proper service - cold calling in this market doesn’t have much effect.

They are expecting delivery mid this month.
Did you get the call for solid gold sub? I have my name down at the Kennedy store. But no call.

I disagree. The Patek perpetual calendar chronograph in platinum is what he should get or if possible the Patek Nautilus 5711 in platinum. .
It must be nice to be well-heeled enough to consider these this way. :colgate:

I respect what they make, and although they did little for me in photos, I thought maybe I would like them more in person. When I finally tried them on, it simply confirmed their watches are not for me. Too austere, and I didn't like the lugs on them or how they sat on my wrist. Great quality, especially for the price, but not for me.

Count me among the anti-Nomos crowd. What's weird is that I like the similar looking Slim d'Hermes a lot. Can a cool font make that big a difference?

I like the Slim d'Hermes a lot too but never considered it similar to Nomos. I'll have to take a look.

I probably shouldn't like the Slim d'Hermes anyway since it's a watch made by a fashion company :nest:

I feel the same way about the Sd'H ... but there you have it.

Nothing necessarily logical about me when it comes to watches.

I visited pretty much every AD I could yesterday (Crown, WOS, Hourglass etc).. bust!
it is kind of sad seeing all of these empty display cases.
with the GST refund and exchange rate I was hopeful.

Sydney is a bust also.
Empty displays unless you are after some bejewelled monstrosity

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
