    It's basically the Nomos club if I were to describe it back to you. It straddles the line beautifully.

    Re: Describe your ideal dress/casual watch design

    I wish I had mad photoshop skills, because the Sinn EZM 10 is almost there, and Sinn can probably build one. Basically I want an EZM 10 with a dial closer to the EZM 1. Here's the details:
    Start with the EZM 10 and all it's tech, including dehumidifying system, diapal escapement, tegimented titanium case and bracelet. Instead of a countdown bezel, make a 12-hour GMT bezel. Instead of blacked-out chrono pushers, make them the same color as the rest of the case, and shave them down so they are completely flush with the case and not slightly raised. Now the dial! I'm bringing in design cues from my Damasko DC 80. Central chronograph minute totalizer as before, but the seconds hand green and the minute hand "airplane"-shaped tip in yellow. Eliminate the EZM 10 subdials at 3, 6, and 9 so there are no subdials (like on the DC 80 or Sinn EZM 10). Eliminate the date indicator. Eliminate the TESTAF logo. Keep the dial as clean as possible, like the brand and maybe the EZM designation, but no "Diapal" or other words.
    That's it.
    I think Sinn may already be very close to having the capability of producing it, but how to convince Sinn to build a one-off watch without having to mortgage the house???

    Of my current collection, I wear one of these two...



    or





    If I had the funds, I would get one of these as I feel they could go with a suit or a tux

    I do not have a watch collection - I have an accumulation of watches

    I agree with your list but the date is a distinct preference if possible as is the seconds hand.
