    Decided on a 1st German

    I've been a member of WUS for quite a while now but I've been an affordables dweller the entire time. Since joining here I've become married, finished college, completed graduate school, moved across the country, and got a job I love in my field.

    I've decided that this calls for the purchase of a higher end watch.

    For quite some time I imagined that I would get a Carrera at this point (obviously not German), but I decided that I don't want something people will look at and make assumptions about.

    Lately though, the Germans recaptured my attention and I revisited the Mühle Glashütte 29er. I have small wrists, so the midsize is the one for me. I was also happy to learn that they come in around the same price from an AD as a Carrera does grey-market. As an added bonus, the windmill (Windmühle) on the crown matches the seal of the town I work for here in Rhode Island.

    Right now I'm working on some sales and saving but before you know it, one of these will be on my wrist in all of it's impeccable quality, under the radar glory.

    Shut your mouth and wear your *Alpinist.
    *"Your Alpinist" is metaphorical and in truth refers to your most versatile watch.

    It's a wonderful watch. It's versatility is unsurpassed. I've enjoyed by Big for a couple of years now, and it will always be with me (although the new pointer date version may push it aside a bit). You've made an inspired choice.

    Thanks for the reinforcement!

    Any chance that WNC Mountains means western North Carolina? If so, I'm curious as to where. My wife (from High Point, NC) and I (from Indiana) are Appalachian State alumni.

    I hope you are able to get your 29er real soon. It's a beautiful timepiece and one I have also considered.

    I did actually, but I'm a clean 3-hand fan.

    Also a great looking watch though.

    Thanks to the OP for putting this brand and model on my radar screen. Good size for me and my next watch must have a central second hand.
