I hear that! I find myself changing holes on my deployment clasp every day... The NATO route seems like the way to go... Do post more pics cool.gif

The camera on the back of my iPhone 4 is shot, so I took it with the front-facing, and flipped it. 

 

Nice! I've always liked the Planet Ocean, but could never get passed the orange bezel that you normally see on 99% of them (I'm guessing so everyone knows you bought a Planet Ocean). Yours is considerably more subtle and still remains legible. Bravo!

Thanks, that was the idea. 

 

I am not sure where I will end up in the world, so I didn't want anything too flashy. Plus the orange bezel is aluminum, which will dent and scratch... Mine is ceramic which is much tougher. 

 

Really the Liquidmetal bezel is the best combo, but it's much pricer.

Haha, sure. 

 

How's the watch running? I did a quick search and I think it's a seventeen jewel manual(?)

I do love a good German watch... My Wempe Zeitmeister keeps incredible time, in a small package.

I bought a couple nice watches earlier last month.

A Stowa Antea with date (white dial, black hands - limited edition, black band) Automatic

Nomos Club (black dial, brown band) Hand winding.

A pic of the two of them




very, very happy with both of them. The club is more casual and is my daily watch. The white dial and styling of the Stowa is a bit dressier.

After the first day I wore my new Orient I had to send it back. During the day I was checking it out, and noticed a white speck of something on the face. I tapped near it and it shifted so I knew it was loose and I was afraid it would fall into the mechanism through the small opening on the face and cause problems. I e-mailed them with the problem and got an RMA to send it back for a "cleaning". I must say I'm a little disappointed with the quality control.

 

The speck was large enough that I could see it on the face at arms length with my 51 year old eyes.

I love my 556I. Simple yet classic design with one of the best looking dials I've seen. I love the simplicity of it. Also I'm not too keen on polished finishing in watches so the brushed finishing all the way through is definitely a plus for me. The design of the dial was the thing which first caught my eye on this watch. I haven't seen a better design yet. It's modern and simple with no numerals. The hands remind me a little bit of some flieger designs and they fit perfectly to the watch. Highly recommended.

 

My other two watches are Certina DS1 for the dressier occasions and Precista PRS-18A for sportier approach and situations where I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing the more expensive watches.

Congratulations! Great looking watches both of them. I love the Nomos design. Great looking watches but maybe slightly too dressy for my taste (when considering every day use).
