@scottswatches Maybe if I was 50 years younger I would see, at a glance, what the time shows but there is just far too much confusion on that dial for me. I did watch the video and all is still not clear. :evil9kf:

So without checking the video, presumably if you ignore all the rubbish on the dial and just look at the long ends of the 2 hands you can just read it like a normal watch.. Does appear to be making life deliberately difficult for the user for no particular reason.

....nice!:thumbsup:

500 pieces per year  --  does that count as a micro-maker?

If so, this is my favourite . . . .

Here's a very rare photograph of five Field Engineer chronographs together, representing this year's Christmas rush.

Scuro bronze something or other that needs bronze crowns before ever seeing the light of day - and a new strap and I will probably get the CW blue fabric strap in due course:

Ancon Challenger (Bronze). Based on a famed Panerai that never made it into full production, despite positive testing by Italian navy divers, I believe there are only two known in existence, one is in their museum, the other was bought at auction a few years back for over 70k.

The other nice thing  --  even if some would find it corny  --  about micro-makers is that some take the trouble to remember their customers. Doesn't happen (at least to me) with larger manufacturers.

In the email today . . . . .

I may have been wrong in thinking this is a micro-maker phenomenon  --  it is possibly just the attention to detail and politeness typified in the village of Glashütte.

GO (at almost 10,000 annual production) is hardly a micro-maker, but this turned up in the post today (Christmas Eve) . . . .

An object lesson in making your customers feel valued :yes:
