    Cool NOMOs not economical? Fret not... alternate choice AVAILABLE!!! Sort of...


    And...it's...from the BRITS!!!
    With 5 days high-beat movement(which is duh... barely noticeable with the small seconds subdial) power~la~reserva
    and day wheel feature addition, priced about the same to some NOMOS models inclusive of shipping charges out of UK.

    Does this turn you on ???
    ... The robust nature of the Calibre SH21 movement provides a stable foundation to the reliability of the C9 Small-Second and with each movement given the accolade of chronometer status by the Controle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres (COSC), precision and accuracy is guaranteed.
    ...


    3 flavors available, but just the slight difference on the strap only...

    Now... only if CHRISTOPHER WARD comes out with non-COSC version... that bumps off roughly...
    Hmmm... USD$500 off the price tag? Will that create a storm?
    A piece of my favorite timepiece, is like a dish of local delicacies. It's not about how good it may look, or how branded in may came from popular stalls or restaurants. It's always the materials and concoction that produces the best keep!

    Lovely watch.... I like that the dial was kept elegantly simple and the Chronometer status relegated to the back of the watch. Where functional information like that belongs. At 40mm x 12.2mm it's a little too hefty as a dress watch on my wrist.

    I don't believe the SH21 is a high beat movement. It has 28800 vph. The 5 days PR is impressive nonetheless.

    The RODINAs had been a hot topic in the F71 arena... i wouldn't be posting here unless the price is F71 qualifying.
    This CW SH21 handwinder is just too... ehh 20x-ish more expensive than the Chinese homage.

    The CW is a nice design, but 40x12mm is quite large for a dress watch.

    The CW is very nice, I like the dial and the lovely blued hands. I would certainly welcome a version that was still adjusted and regulated in-house, but which skipped the independent chronometer testing if it came at a lower price point.

    I think the Rodina was expected because putting "Nomos not economical? Fret not..." implies to most people that you're going to show them a watch that is much cheaper than Nomos. Instead, you showed one that just as expensive.

    And it's very nice.
