What do you guys think of this watch?



It is so unique. Love the one hand. I want a nice watch that I can wear with just about anything and I think black and white is a good place to start. It also has the display back which I love.

I have one. I like it but never wear it because of the fierce competition for wrist time with other watches who always tend to win...

Would you be willing to sell yours? I don't know if gimicky is the word for it. It is a remake of a 1900 pocketwatch. I still like it a LOT.

I once called this watch 'pretentious' on a watch forum. I have subsequently seen one in person (someone actually owned and wore it to a watch collectors meeting). I like it more now, but still think it looks like you're trying a bit too hard. That said, it's actually easier to read than a regulator.

Pretentious? This one is so simple. I just liek it because it is simple and different. The skeleton watches maybe you are trying a little too hard. Thought some are quite cool.

It's not a bad-looking watch. In my opinion, the inability for the watch to tell time to the exact minute makes it impractical as an everyday watch. YMMV.

I like it, though I prefer it in the silver dial with embossed blue numerals and was very close to getting one of those a couple months ago.

Tact watches are a classic. They take some getting used to but really look cool.

It's just as accurate as any other analog. Each mark is 5 minutes. You will get within 2 minutes, which is good enough for me.

Really? I never had an issue with that. Maybe because I never have conference calls or meetings at 2:32PM or 10:18AM...

I just realized your pic was of the white dial version. Mine is the "tan" dial

Oh yes, I definitely want the white dial. Anyone else have a white dial in good condition they would be willing to part with?
