    I'm glad I don't get a vote here, because this is a tough one. When you look at the price of anything Max Bill this Kienzle has to be a bargain. The dream ticket would be the Smiths' movement and the Kienzle's dial. At this point, I'm once again delighted, because this contest always pushes me into buying an amazing watch or two. To be neck and neck with such a cracking watch is just a bonus!

    So you did, well that has a satisfying symmetry!

    However, now I'm going to roll out my post brexit appeal to pure nationalism:



    There's a few key points to note in this photo. First, I've finally managed to capture the oily loveliness of the dial, second is the 'MADE IN ENGLAND' legend and third, if you look carefully, you can see where the dial sits in the case, ensuring that no one will ever see where it was made. And that is why we don't have a British watch industry...

    Is yours a Cheltenham one or a Welsh one? It's one of those rare ones where I'm not quite sure - if it says made in England then it's Cheltenham, made in great Britain then it's Welsh,

    Incidentally, my screen shows 6 - 6 with twelve voters. Am I missing something?
