    Nomos Metro or Orion?

    Looking for a daily wearer, I love both designs, but they are very different. Input from owners would be helpful, thank you.

    The Orion is by far more elegant.
    Kind regards

    I had an Orion. It was nice but kind of boring. I'd go Metro.

    Personally I do not like the indications of the minutes in the Metro. For myself I chose an Orion Weiss with an OEM suede strap

    Definitely the Metro if you're looking for a daily wearer. The Orion is gorgeous, but seems pretty formal to me. I can wear my Metro with pretty much everything.

    How formal the Orion is, is heavily influenced by the color. In 33, which will probably wear bigger than you might expect, there's quite a few color options. In 38 manual, there's still a midnight blue for only a bit more; there's also a 38 Orion 1989 for a bit more. I agree the white-dial Orion runs on the formal side, but the darker dials strike a nice balance.

    I vote for the Metro as well. Looks more versatile for a daily wearer, IMHO.

    The point on color is well-taken. OP's pic was the white-dial Orion, but perhaps he's open to other colors. I'll add as well that the 37 Metro I have wears larger than I expected.
