    Ohhhh! Decisions Decisions!!! I was planning to hit the plunge on this one and was waiting eagerly for the Kickstarter to open, till I found the G.Gerlach Enigma.

    http://sklep.gerlach.org.pl/index.ph...tegory&path=81

    I've always wanted a classic vintage barrel shaped case chronograph, but a bit on the large side!
    Again can't decide at all! Same movement and almost the same price!
    Need help guys.

    Here's what happened, to the best of my recollection. When I first posted that image, it was re-scaled, but only a little bit smaller, and it had a black border around it. When you clicked on it it gave a popup with the full-size image. There was no banner that prompted you to click on it. That's what it looked like *to me*, the person who posted it, but to everyone else it looked like the small images we've seen lately, with the size banner prompting you to click the image for the full-size image.

    Not knowing any of this, I edited the post to put in the text prompting you to click the image, and I changed my mind about what it should say a couple times. That's why you saw it change.

    Once I figured out that everyone else saw my image differently, and then discovered that all the WUS-hosted images were going to the small format thingy, I got irked and went and created an account across the street.

    Since then, there seems to have been a policy reversal and we are back to images not getting scaled. If it sticks, I'll stick around.

    What I'd really like is a compromise, because I do hate images that are too big for the forum. Scale *those*, and not everything else.

    I really don't want too many microbrand watches but Backed the Kickstarter for the Helgray Silverstone earlier today. I'm still not sure if I will follow through with the pledge but I have a few days to decide. The G. Gerlach Enigma was also enticing but I don't like the hour/minute hands on that one and I have a Gerlach already.

    The meca-quartz movement is new to me - can someone please explain the registers - is there a running seconds hand (non-chrono)? I saw that the Autodromo Protoripo with the same movement had a 24 hr register which I don't really like.

    The meca-quartz do not have running seconds. And both my mecas have 24hr register.

    NICE!

    How much did it end up costing? I have a Hammy on a leather strap, so would be interesting to know how much it was.

    Thanks for the clarification, I think I'll stay with this one. That's a bit annoying though, I understand that the two dial panda layout looks nice and balanced, but a single register meca-quartz chrono without the 24hr register would be great as well (minimal like the Stowa fliegerchrono). Or just the 6 o clock running seconds and the 9 o clock 30 minute totalizer.

    I like the Helgray, but went for the Gerlach. I have other watches similar to the Silverstone, and I've looked longingly at the Zodiac Sea Dragon for a long time but could never decide 100% on a color combo that I really loved.

    I'm on a phone!

    Pulled the trigger on one of these, I really like the unique minimalist design.
