    What's with peoples' ignorance of 'standard' movements? The assumption that they're crappy is completely flawed. They're 100% tried and true.

    Nomos finally got round to making the watch I've been hoping for ever since the original Club was released.

    Nice!

    I put through an order for a Nomos Orion just a few days ago. Wasn't planning on getting it just yet, but the price will almost certainly shoot up next year due to the GBP:EUR exchange rate...

    Should arrive in a few weeks.

    Nice choice - which face version of the Orion are you getting?

    The rose gold version is very pretty.

    Here is my current favourite that gets worn pretty much every day. I posted this watch... but a different picture a few months ago. I plan to make another watch purchase in the next month... so hopefully this one will get a little rest every now and again[​IMG]
    - great watch, I had it on a navy croc or NATO. Changed the whole look!

    I went for the white face with silver hands/markers:

    I'm planning to alternate between the Orion and my Stowa Antea KS...

    On hindsight a Nomos Orion brings you halfway to a http://www.dornblueth.com/flash.php?...n&s=refcal_990 ...

    I don't have that kind of money - I am but a kid...

    Plus they're huge! (For me, anyway.)

    I will throw mine in the ring. It was a wedding gift from my wonderful wife (handpicked by me of course):

    Thanks. It's the manual wind version with date, which is 38.5mm. Like all Nomos, the Club wears larger than its size, though not to the extent of the Tangente/Tangomat type. The auto sans date is the 40mm one and the auto with date is 41.5mm. I was fortunate to be able to compare all 4 sizes and you need a big wrist for those auto models! Thanks to Nomos' Beta movement placing the date ring around the mechanism, rather than on top of it, this watch is only a fraction of a millimetre thicker than the non-date 36mm version - giving it even better proportion. It wears very flat and is thus very comfortable.

    I opted for the steel caseback, which on the one hand is a shame since Nomos movements are very nicely finished, but on the other hand more appropriate to the type of watch IMO - and avoided more months of waiting. [​IMG]

    Nice watch - what's the manufacturer? I can't make it out from the pic...
