    I almost got a Kemmner, but he's not around making watches now I kinda wanted it though at the time.

    Originally it had a 2824 inside, then he moved to Miyota 9010, maybe you could find one pre-owned

    Just a heads-up in case you are buying online. Square watches have more wrist presence (due to a larger dial area) than their circular counterparts for any given size.

    My R5.5 is apparently only 35mm across. I had to measure it to believe it wasn't the XL 39 mm version. Then one day I saw the 39mm and it looked at least 44mm.

    Of course, I could just be very bad at judging size... After all - I bought a 41mm Datejust.
    I'd Schwarzkopf it daily, except I couldn't be bothered with the inevitable explanations...

    I've thought some about the size considerations. Bell & Ross makes a 42mm and a 39mm among others. I'd go for the 39mm but they are all quartz and the few youtube videos I have watched show the seconds hand missing the markers!!

    I think the Tag Monaco Quartz just might be a front runner for a dress style.

    I've considered the Nomos Tetra. This does wear big like most Nomos.



    I've had the TV dial GO Seventies in blue, and man some day get the charcoal dial version


    The Cartier Tank and Santos are nice. I've had the Santos 100 XL . The Roman Numerals drove me crazy.

    Cheers,

    Michael

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!
