Nomos or Stowa?

Have been looking around to add a few watches finally. Have looked at the Longines Legend diver (worth it or not) and a german watch without breaking the bank. I an not a chrono guy probably because I get confused easily. Looked at Chronoswiss but nothing of interest to me there. Looked at this one https://www.watchuseek.com/threads/fs-1 ... o.5274147/ but I am not an expert on vintage watches so I do not know if the movement and such are correct.

Stowa models including the 41mm Marine

or a Nomos which for the most part have an "in-house" movement

And finally this one which is made by Minerva with an AS 5001 alarm movement similar to my ML Reveil Globes Image

Gotta be the Nomos, man.

I've looked at the Tangente neomatik (40.5mm) with the ring date. Great looking dial and case, and you could wear it casual or dress it up for business. Incredible in-house, classically decorated movement, and very cool date complication - the numbers are a bit small but I had no problem reading them. The watch was super comfortable with the angled lugs and a really nice full grain leather strap. Even the leather presentation case was cool.

Would'a bought it if I could'a.

Yema Flygraf is really cool and really affordable. You already have a Yema don't you? Vrey cool brand.

If you don't mind spending a bit, the most impressive watch I've handled in a long time is the Bell & Ross BR-O5 on the bracelet. Absolutely STUNNING.

Great looking - IIRC these were on the small side- 36 or 38mm.
39.5mm

^^^ Nothing wrong with that-

With the DeVille in the mix...

Classic B&W enamel dial with Roman markers and dauphine hands, and the seven link bracelet give it refined, structural looks (would also look great on a nice black croc-o-gator strap for dressy or black tie occasions - if anyone does that anymore), and I'm partial to the coaxial movements.

...My 2¢, the Omega's the one.
