Watches - another passion of ours, it seems...post your pics! - Page 490

Thanks for the suggestions! The Max Bill Chronoscope is a fantastic looking watch by the way! Thanks for not making my decision any easier.

It's starting...sigh. Went for this one. Getting leather straps as well.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

Also got this as a daily wearer. I'll probably put it on a nato when it arrives.

With Stowa I almost ended up with a Antea but got the Ikarus instead (Or got the Ikarus first take your pick :P) .

If you like the style of the Antea it is a Bauhaus style watch which  Max Bill does but cannot remember if they are cheaper  than the Stowa. 

An alternative for deeper pockets would be a Nomos, but your doubling the price range to get one.

 

Stowa and Christopher Ward both seem great companies and do not think you could wrong with either.

Personally I would go with the Stowa as I like the style more and they do a 36.5 mm one.

 

I can see a Stowa in my future.

For my wedding later today (remarrying my last wife, just like my mother and dad did), I've pulled out of the safe my favorite and most expensive watch, a genuine IWC Big Pilot 5002:

I have to admit in this case I prefer the rubber strap for some reason...

Yep, it comes with the rubber strap installed when the Omega store got it, but I have them put on the steal one for sizing.  Now I am wearing it with the rubber strap.

I have had it for a week and it is keeping great time. Well within Omega's claimed 1-2 sec per day.

 

Welcome to the club ;)
