    Quality watches at a reasonable price. They stick to their design in pretty much everything they make, which I respect. Their short run of Bronze Copperhead had me very interested, luckily for my wallet they sold out rather quickly lol

    Given Sinn and Nomos are the only two German brands I have owned at this price point I would need to go with NOMOS. Manufactures that don't make their own movements or at least license and build something unique to them have no interest to me. That takes Sinn out of the running. I like that Nomos can make a smaller watch look big on the wrist and also keep it thin. I'd like to see a few more sportier models from them with far more WR, but keep the near zero bezel and thin profile. 200M is more than enough WR and can be achieved in 11mm thickness or less. Lets get some thicker hands on these models to allow some lume that lasts more than three hours. Think Panerai Due/Bugari mix, but with reasonable WR and maybe a bit thinner than the Due. Even 120m would be acceptable for WR. Keep the dial clean, stick to time and second hand (small or central) with movement indicated by lume large enough to see. Date can be a option on this model with the default as no date.
    Cheers,

    Michael

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!

    The brand I own the most of and that I wear the most frequently is Sinn. I canít really put my finger on why Iím so taken with them but there is just some je ne sais quoi about them I find compelling. The fam in its current state:
