Both are definite keepers.

Both are cool IMO. But I particularly like the AM, they make some wacky shit. Not over the top fashion-y like TechnoMarine or, dare I say it, Invicter... But instead their designs tend to be mechanically innovative/interesting/intriguing... Yours demonstrates that well, and I'm not even sure what it does. What is that, a moon phase of some form?

I have only one Angular Momentum but it's charm is in its weird rotating dial. Like here, it's 9:35 but you can barely tell becuase the current hour passes through the 12:00 position, and then minute & seconds hands do what they are supposed to...

A couple of years ago, this Angular Momentum was presented at forum.watchtime.ch:
Image
Comments went from "how much worse can it get" to "waste of natural resources" and so forth, almost two pages of malicious comments. Then the owner of Angular Momentum showed up, explained a bit about the watch, then complained bitterly about the wording in some of the comments. That part started with "Do You guys have any clue about watches, or what? Seemingly just too much time at hand to kill on a forum... likely Your collection consists of cheap China made..." Boy, did he get a bashing, the thread went on for another 10 pages... :mrgreen:
I did however exchange a couple of pm's with him, nice guy. Just his entry post was suicidal. What I do like about the brand is the fact that they really strive for a design of their own.

Good for you, Gerdenheimer, for bothering to exchange PMs with this jamoke. That wartch is, without a doubt, the worst piece of motherfucking shit I've ever seen in my life. Just looking at that makes me want to gouge my goddamned eyes out with a rusty roofing nail. I actually just drove a railroad spike through my ball sack just so I didn't have to look at that goddamned piece of shit for another motherfucking second. But, to each his own, right?

I do recall when the Burett was a minor "It" watch. Everybody wanted one, probably because it was being sold on ShopNBC for absurdly cheap. I recall exchanging PMs at BDWF with CheepsII (speaking of a goddamned asshole) about his masturbatory love for this brand. Looking at it again, it's pretty swell, and probably running great for the guys who bought one for cheeps.

Be carefull with these rusty nails, as they might cause inflammation. Your balls will turn red like a lobster in boiling water.

Thanks for bringing up Angular Momentum, I became fascinated with them since i discovered them about ten years ago. They have permutated many which ways from avant dive watches to super high priced enamel painted dials. I have come close several times to pulling the trigger which is usually a bad sign for the company as I have a history of buying watches that diminish intensively in value or go out of business and are not serviceable. The only good thing about this is when I was going through meat grinder divorce the ex's attorney wanted in to my safe deposit box to calculate the value of my collection. Everything had depreciated insanely and I was happy to eat my losses, half of -1 is still -.05. :lol:

I really wanted to like the Burett Continent ETA 251 model I bought from WoW a couple years ago, but had to return it. The black IP was plated only on one side of the bracelet and could nearly be removed with a fingernail.
