Like many of you, the core of my love for mechanical watches comes from my intrigue with the movements inside them. At this point, the movement is one of the most important factors in my decision to buy (or not buy) a watch. I don't have many watches with display backs, but I still really like the idea of having a cool movement inside, even if I can't see it.
That said, what are some of the coolest looking (affordable) movements to you? I should like the Lemania c1861/3 in the Speedy Pro "sapphire sandwich", but it seems overly complicated to me. I know being complicated is something a lot of people like, but I prefer simple, something like the modified Unitas 6498 in the Stowa Flieger Original. (neither is my pic, as I own neither watch)
I'm currently on the waitlist for Stowa's Marine Automatic with the Soprod A10 movement, which isn't something that you see everyday, but from the pictures I've seen, it's not a very attractive movement, IMO. That really takes away from the appeal to me.
