    I plan to wear the annual calendar during the day, the moonphase in the evening, and the dual time when traveling outside my local time zone.

    Hardly. I can't compare to many posters in this thread. And it will take me a couple of years to save for the next two.

    I like your chosen colour scheme, Scott. Congratulations! Seems they don't charge any extra for choosing your own combination of colours? Anyway, you chose well I think! I don't know how long it would take to get used to reading that date, though. Personally, I'm rather drawn to the moonphase. :)

    Can't wait to see/hear your review on this. I'm very intrigued by the company.. Congrats on a very cool pickup. First time I've read someone getting one of these pieces.

    I'm still wondering if you're yet in whatever lies at the bottom of yours, or still careering towards even more extraordinary additions. :)

    I think the counter clockwise day and month would really screw with me for a while as well. And while I find the designs of OuJ interesting, I'm not sure I find them practical (but I guess after a while you adjust). Though I will say I do find myself checking out the moonphase quite often as well. That said, it would be well down on my list of watches as this would be more of a fun watch and I'm not sure how much wrist time it would actually see for me.

    My feelings exactly. But even if it's further down my priority order in dreamland, I kind of like the fact that it exists.

    Congrats Scott! Looking forward to hearing some ownership impressions and seeing some wrist shots soon.

    There is no charge for customizing colors unless you want gold hands or something like that.



    This is exactly why I wanted an OuJ. Everything else I was looking at was too staid and serious. Style should be fun, no?
