    The correct name is Dornbluth.

    Singular is right and Dornblueth is more correct than Dornbluth.

    Still a nice watch !

    The correct name is Dornbluth. They have released this year 35mm watches. They are intended for ladies, but the design is almost the same.

    They don't look big once you use them. Is not a classic watch in terms of size (I wouldn't wear it in a wedding) but for everyday work with suit in the office is great.

    In my blog you can find some pictures of mine, I reviewed it a few days ago.


    The 34mm might be worth a look. Normally, 35-36mm is about adequate, and for my large wrist, 37-38mm even better. 40mm is OK for a Rolex-type thing, but seems very nearly too big on a white dress watch my wife gave me.

    True. But Gramm is also right - when you can't put in the umlaut, you must add an "e". That's why Glashutte Original's website is spelt differently as well.

    The only guy who put forward an incorrect spelling was economiayocio.

    That liquidmetal PO is sick.

    Thanks. I haven't took it off in all week, although my collection is quite big.

    You are right. The website in fact is: http://www.dornblueth.com/

    My search for a new Mark XV finally paid off; picked this up today after a three month wait:

    Great watch. You can wear it for everything.

    For really sport matters, I have this version, I will use it this weekend:
