Wednesday watch

This the watch that knocks me a little every time I wear it as it always makes me wonder... why do I spend more than £150 on a watch?

I think the same, and to prove a point here's 80 quids worth of Steeldive:

It does make you wonder though...

Your Steeldive at £80 brand new, my Orient was £92 brand new, crazy value, and great looking watches. I have worn my Orient for three days and it has been checked against an online atomic clock and it isn't a second out over three days (loses around 2 seconds while wearing it, and then gains around 2 seconds while it's on the bedside cabinet)

Orient/Steedive et al should be a wakeup call for Seiko as I can't think of many automatic dive watches that Seiko produce selling for under £100 at this quality, and accuracy (maybe I just got lucky with accuracy)

If I had to choose only five of my little collection to retain, this would definitely number among them.

In fact, undoubtedly the most love per pound spent among all seventeen pieces :blush:

One of only two hundred or so pieces Dirk Dornblüth makes each year.

99.1.

I hesitate to use the word 'perfection', but damn, if this isn't perfection I don't know what is...

Morning.

This for me today (eventually after problems). This is the Equalizer.

Press for the time and the display bounces around like a Hi-Fi graphic analyser..

It settles down leaving two LEDs lit for a couple of seconds. Time shown above is 11.28 am. 

Lug size is 29mm (this caused lots of problems and I gave up, pain in the @$$). It's about 50 x 35 x 11mm and wears small on me.
