I think the first one is the Midnight Edition in collaboration with Timeless Luxury Watches in the U.S. I believe they don't sell that model in Germany and Nomos doesn't sell it directly either. You have to order from Timeless. In any case, the Orion is a great watch. I have the regular 38mm one and I highly recommend it.

No it's the Orion Anthrazit. I prefer 35mm over the 38.

I wish they didn't make the lugs so huge on many of the NOMOS. I was interested in the Ahoi Neomatik Atlantik, but after trying one in person, I could only notice the lugs.

I tried in a club and club campus and they seemed well proportioned. I have a Stowa partitio that has long lugs that wears nice.

While the Marc Newson Hourglass is certainly not wrist-mounted, I thought those that enjoy fine watches might also be able to appreciate this high-tech, yet old-school timepiece.

I'd rather have this

The Atmos clocks, powered solely by minute changes in atmospheric pressure, are indeed a fascinating timepiece. Though it seems like such an advanced idea, the current mechanism for the Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos clocks began production in 1939, and atmosphere-powered clocks have been around since the 17th century. There is an example in New Zealand that "is still running despite never having been manually wound since its construction in 1865". Here is a description of Marc Newson's version. Personally, if I were purchasing an Atmos, I would prefer one of the classic designs.

Cool. Can you wear one around your neck?

Picked up a Frogman Auto as a gift. What are your thoughts on this watch? It really grew on me once I saw it in person.

Love it. SOlid build. Good price. 70 hour power reserve. I'm partial to the blue. It makes Longines irrelevant IMHO.

I cant get past the huge crown and lock and I dont particularly like the 12. It should be a simple marker like the rest.

Speedmaster pro with a bit of color in the dial. I purchased the dial and hands separately.

The new Richemont watch Boutique at Yorkdale is now open. I spent most of my time drooling on the IWC's there.
