    I was enjoying the review (and getting around to rather fancying the watch) until you got to the bit about a non-hacking second hand, when I gave up. Considering the original function of a deck watch, what possible justification is there for a modern version that cannot be set to the correct time?

    Like most non-hacking watches, you can turn the crown slightly backward to stop the seconds hand and hack the time on the 6498 (as long as it is not completely wound up). It is a really beautiful watch and I would not (and did not) let the lack of hacking be a deal killer.

    Yes, of course, I was aware of that but it seems a pretty crappy way of setting a watch, and would completely spoil it for me.
