    Put it this way, if earlier, cruder, mechanical watches - often without specific shock protection - could survive being brought aboard piston driven propeller engined planes (as opposed to the turboprop types we see today), or for that matter survive the vibration of a Saturn V launch, then their modern counterparts should be fine during jaunts on modern bikes (motorised or push).

    My sub has stood up to work outs, mountain biking, rafting, tennis, horse back riding and daily bicycle commuting for 20+ years. No movement related issues, but cracked the crystal once (totally my own fault).

    solid point, i guess i just dont know enough about nomos. to me, they are both watches i would buy purely for looks, and for that, the stowa appeals more to me. but obviously, personal tastes vary when it comes to looks.

    I don't know about that situation, Dino. Still looks pretty dangerous to me. Hopefully you took that photo while in PARK.
