    Bauhaus dilemma

    I wanted to get a Bauhaus inspired watch for some time now in my collection. I have settled between 2 watches and cannot decide.
    The first is the homage to nomos by carnival. Size is perfect at 39 mm and send to be a quality piece. As far as movement is concerned I do not know what it houses. Think of getting it with the mesh strap since I do not have another watch with one. Anyhow easy to swap with a leather strap.

    The second is a DOM. I like the domed Crystal, it houses a Seiko NH35, but is a bit larger at 41mm. Again I am thinking of getting it with a mesh strap. This is also 50m water proof, can take a leasure sweetie with it from time to time.

    Anyone have any of the two and could share an opinion on quality?

    The Carnival NOMOS Tangete homages use Sea-Gull TY2713/ST1731 movements, the same type/series used in Sea-Gull, Rodina, Rider, Feice, and just about every other mechanical Tangente homage being sold. The ST1731 has a date feature. Some of the others use the dateless ST1701. Unlike the others, the Carnival has a mineral crystal, instead of synthetic sapphire, and that's one reason it's cheaper.

    I wouldn't trust a 50M Chinese watch to actually be much more water resistant than a 30M WR version. I took a brand new, 50M WR Q&Q by Citizen watch in the pool, and it leaked.

    I got the DOM watch in the end in the ongoing Ali sale for just 37 euros!

    Does anyone know to which watch this DOM is an homage?

    Good choice and that's a great price, you can't go wrong with an NH36. I've had my eye on that one for a while but would like to see some real pics before I decide. Please post some photos when you get it!
