Congrats Jeffrey. We need to have another get together soon so I can see it in person. I've always liked that model, even though I don't normally go for the domed crystals.

On many days, I would agree w/o hesitation...but in this instance, there is definitely something alluring about a piece that displays both a dark gray dial coupled w/ lighter gray indices & sub-dials that are joined w/ a minimally visible SS casing housing such a time worn movement as this at a Jaw like preference point..

Having lived several major chunks of my life in the White City (Tel Aviv) there are few things of such simplicity that are so beautiful and functional besides the MB&F no 4.

I think the day/date works great on the watch. That said, Bauhaus windows are traditionally vertical, you'd probably have to build a whole new movement to display a vertical day/date.

I too would grab this if I didn't have my eyes on a Credor, I've reached the point where I no longer just grab it cause it's there.

That sucks, are you going to try to get a replacement or refund?

I saw the link but did not register for Massdrop. When you buy from them, who are you buying from? Is it an authorized dealer or a liquidation outfit like Woot and others? Hopefully Jeffreys issue will be resolved to his satisfaction. If not dealing with an authorized seller I would go for a refund rather than some type of repair. I've purchased two Junghans which were grey market on Ebay, cheap deals with no issues, fortunately.

Is it really loud? I had a d.freemont that was pretty small, I think 38mm, with a 7750, and the wobble was actually a little distracting. It wasn't really loud, though.
