    # hands = 3...2...1 Show us your 1-handed watches!

    All you really need is ONE hand!

    Currently searching for:

    *one hand
    *24 hour
    *0/24 at 6
    *automatic (missed it by *that* much!)

    Anyone who produces one with a date window will be shot at sunrise...

    I had one of those Luches and was amazed at how easy it was to tell the time well enough for everyday use with it. A Meistersinger is on my mini grail list.
    This isn't the one I'd get (too big, at 40mm) but I love the way they've done a day/date complication.

    Not particularly fond of two-handers, but really like the simplicity of one-handers. Can't really explain why. Guess it's the novelty of the one-hander making up for what I feel is a lack of movement on the two-hander. As I said can't explain my thinking.

    Only have the one, but as wmw, a Meistersinger is on the list

    Like wmw, I like the MeisterSinger date wheel. Pretty sure OrangeSport does, too.

    And here I was, thinking I knew how to read an analogue watch. They are striking to look at for how simple they look, but it doesn't feel like there are enough markers to read the watches.

    It's not about knowing the precise time with a one-hander (although properly set and with practice you can read it pretty darn close). It's more of a laissez faire attitude towards time. Oddly enough, my wife loves my Meistersinger. She actually borrowed it for a few days when she needed a watch. She says that the single hand just makes sense to her brain, maybe it's just the linear concept of time and the single point marching forward in it. Who knows, I just know if/when she starts working again and needs a watch a Neo Q will probably wind up in our household.

    Oh yea, here's a pic...

    My one hander gets worn quite a bit but I need a new strap for it. It is a modified Luch.

    Dammit, this thread has got me searching for one handed watches on eBay.
    Found this one, love the style, not so sure about the name (although I suppose it is appropriate)

    If I was going to buy another or replace the Luch, the Azimuth Back in Time would be my top choice.

    Pretty fond of my little Neo, even though it has a date window.
