    Helson GAUGE ONE hand REVIEW (one hand or normal three hand version?)

    edit: contains information and compar. pics with other watches, down...


    Guys help me... I cant decide which one should I take!

    I am fan of one hand watches, currently dont have any, but I have before and like the simplicity of it...

    but

    3 hand version has sweeping second hand what I like... and maybe better value because its more "normal"

    So tough decision ooooh

    so which one YOU like more???

    1, 3, 7 or 9 hands won't ever make that watch anywhere near "normal".

    It's a cool watch in itself! I'd get the normal three hand version.

    If, this is your cup of tea, which I'm inclined to think it is, I'd get the 3. GL.

    In my opinion, the 1 hand is more interesting. Too impractical for me, but more interesting. And it looks more like a gauge.

    Given the inspiration for this watch I'd go with the 1 hand.
    I'm sure after a short time it would be simple to read.

    The watch is already unusual so, go with the one hand to make it even more so.
    I have a 1 hand watch and you will get used to it quickly.

    Exactly my thoughts. It would be more user-friendly (thou less aesthetically pleasing) if it had 5 minute markers as opposed to the 6, 10 minute markers.
