    New Melbourne Watch Company Carlton

    I have always really like Suj's designs but this is the first one that I think will fit into my collection.

    Sharp. It reminds me of the Longines Heritage 1973 without out all the excessive dial markings.

    Though, of course, there's then the question of what watches were in the minds eye of the GO designers as they brought that deliberately referential piece into being....

    It kinda remind me of a Panerai chronograph.



    But it does strongly resemble the GO.

    I like the black dialed version.

    That's rather nice. I'm confused by the dial layout though (forgive my ignorance of chrono movements).
    The right subdial is a 24h indicator. The left is minutes? Does the centre second hand only run in chrono mode? Or does it run normally but then reset to zero and start again when the chronograph is running?

    I would assume it only runs in chrono mode.

    Hour and minutes: quartz
    Right subdial: slaved 24 hour
    Left subdial: 60 minutes mechanical chrono
    Central seconds: 60 seconds mechanical chrono

    (So no running seconds)
