Nomos Orion

Check out my latest acquisition, the Nomos Orion. At a stately 35 mm in diameter, this watch is a classy little number that stands in stark contrast to the dinner-plate sized watches of today. It's got a beautifully tinted silver dial with simple hour markers and slim, elegant hands. Viewable from the sapphire glass case-back is Nomos's Alpha movement, a manual wind movement made entirely by Nomos in Glashütte, Germany. A timeless dress watch perfect for any gentleman.

The Airman Original hews as close as possible to the original 'Fleiger' watch style - the specially issued watches given to pilots in WWII. The movement is a beautiful manual wind with a swan neck regulator, blued screws and guiloche patterns. All dial markings are applied with an extremely effective luminescent. The watch is available with or without the Stowa logo and in an automatic version that is COSC certified. Because of this watches popularity you have to be put on a wait-list for delivery. Current orders are expected to arrive by 2010 (I know, yikes.) 850 Euro.

Stowa is one of the increasingly visible German watchmakers. They distinguish themselves in 2 ways, however - they have actually been around since 1927 and they make AFFORDABLE watches without compromising quality. The Marine Original is a classic and one which has to be seen to be fully appreciated. A ceramic white dial, beautifully blued hands and a gorgeous caseback let you see the very well produced manual-wind ETA, COSC movement. 690 Euro. Also available in an automatic version and with roman numerals.
