    distortion of the dial is caused by the crystal.

    My favourite for 2012 is this silver Swiss-made, unidentified movement, Chinese-market wristwatch c.1919 imported by Carlowitz and retailed by Vrard in Shanghai.

    This one came to me early in the year, but is probably going to remain my favorite for a long time

    It would be my Futurematic, bought in August, a quirky watch that I adore.

    Only bought one watch and it was an unexpected one - Omega Speedmaster Quartz from 1979. Not everybody even knows these exists and many believe they are fake.
