    Watches with thick hour markers instead of numerals?

    Inspired by the discussion thread about Bauhaus watches, I have a new question.
    How many watches can you think of that have thick line hour-markers instead of numerals?

    Here are the "rules":
    -- no numerals at all
    -- no triangles at 12 o'clock
    -- thin, delicate markers don't qualify

    I came up with the following:
    Mondaine Swiss Railways
    Aristo Bahnhofsuhr Pforzheim
    Sinn 556
    MIH Watch
    Mühle Glashütte Vision 2001 ART

    Any others out there?

    Almost all Doxa's would qualify, unless they are disqualified because of the numbers on the bezel.
    Very few tasks cannot be accomplished with orders that end in the words "... or die trying."

    Current Collection: Sinn 656 on rubber strap | Seiko SKX781K on bracelet (Orange Monster) | Damasko DC56 | Suunto t4 | Casio G-Shock Cockpit Scuba Worldtime G-741D-7 | Doxa 1000T Professional | TAG Heuer Monaco CW2111.BA0780 (black chrono on braclet) | Seiko SKX779K3 on rubber (Black Monster) | Sinn U1 on rubber & steel | Orient Star WZ0271FD (300m yellow diver) | Panerai PAM112L
    Incoming: nothing currently
    Wish List: Christiaan van der Klaauw Ariadne in Steel | Omega Seamaster PO Big Size 2200.50.00 with Mesh Bracelet | Blankpain Fifty Fathoms and still looking . . .
    Gone:
    TAG Heuer 2000 Professional (blue chrono on bracelet)

    Maybe these don't qualify, they are just wide I guess.

    I think numbers on the bezel, including the Ocean7, make the watch more sporty than stylized. The Mondaine, MIH, etc. are highly stylized, aiming after a specific, quasi-minimalistic look. I don't think of dive watches in that manner.
