TMMLH, you crazy fuck.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

It's not that I don't like the watch. The watch is fine. From what I have seen, Nomos seems to suffer from design tunnel vision. Everything is more or less the same. Reminds me in a way of Damasko, a brand I love which is also a one-trick pony.

Their design may be singular, but their prices sure aren't. 10 micrograms of blue paint on the hands? Hand over another $1,750, you drooling e-hipster!

Ridiculous even if they really fire the damn things- how many handsets could they fire at once- 10,000? I like the damn things, the management not so much. I should have picked one up when foggy got his- money's gotten a little nuts.

They were $900 ten years ago, with a speck better than the ones you can find today. They've hitched their price rises to the Rolex/Omega bandwagon and the interneterati are absolutely loving it.

I like the Bauhaus, minimalist look but there are plenty of other watchmakers doing the same thing for less $$$. And just how many iterations of "minimalist" can there be?

I'm looking more at Laco, Junghans, Stowa, Junkers

But hey, it's the 100 year anniversary of the Bauhaus movement so there will be LOTS of watches to ponder.
