    2 Register Chronos! Help me go over the edge....

    I think they are perfect! I love the symmetry. If I buy a watch this year it will likely be one of these bad boy bicompax watches. But really I don't know much about them. Can you please share yours and your movement details and what you feel are the plus and minuses of them?

    2 Register Chronos! Help me go over the edge....







    Pam 345
    P2004/9 8 days movt with monopusher and rear PR module

    The good
    Long PR (managed to get around 235 hours)
    The movt still fits the regular 44mm pam
    Killer lume
    The monopusher is surprisingly smooth to press
    Rear PR = less clutter on the dial
    You don't see many of this watch around with only 150 made
    Even the PR hands have lume on it

    The bad
    Only 30 minutes on the minute counter
    The second counter hand has no lume
    No GMT like the standard version

    If you want a quick fix, how about a 1963?

    Heavily modified Valjoux 775x. Since it is a monopusher one can only stop and reset the chronograph function. For me the looks outweigh this disadvantage.
