    Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is intended to be hand wound to keep it as thin as the original. Hand wound movements are generally thinner, often by quite a bit. Awkwardly fat...

    I certainly think that if the crown goes, it should be the plain text version and not the stylised-text version. One or the other. I'd be interested to see what SMITHS DE LUXE all on one line looks...

    Out of those I prefer 3 over 4. It's hard to say why exactly, but I think if you just look at the top half only, there's a better balance with the SMITHS text as the focal point. Or another way to...

    The other thread alerted me to the fact I haven't been keeping up with this at all. If these come out well, I will definitely be in line for one. I'm "that guy" who bought a CWC quartz reissue in...

    Ooh, I like that. Kind of a cross between a Black Bay and a 62MAS. Welcome to the forum!

    That's weird. I like it. For some reason I wish it had a small sub-second at 3 instead of a sweep hand. Actually, I know why. Pac Man is why.

    What's the make & model?

    As a not-purist, that's what I was thinking too. I quite like the elaborate version of the Smiths logo apart from it being too cramped on that version of the dial. The plain-text version tends to...

    There are so many little details about this that just make it both perfectly balanced and functional. Surprisingly few watches manage to pull off both for some reason. I am looking forward to seeing...

    The whole point of this thread is to find something decent, but still leagues below the Credor :)

    Since a few people are getting caught up in the enamel aspect rather than the design (in which respect you can't really compare the Breguet with the Credor at all), it's worth pointing out that the...

    That's rather nice, but a bit too minimal, perhaps? Those earlier ones are a totally different style, but very cool.

    Whether or not that exists, this certainly isn't it. It's not even a perfect 0/10. Maybe a 2. Considerably worse than mere mediocrity, but not quite bad enough to be remembered for years to come like...

    Yeah, probably one of the closest things I can think of too. However, their designs tend to be quite playful, with all the pastel colours etc. The interesting thing about the Eichi II is that it's...

    Yeah, that bit did stick out like a sore thumb. It's hard to pick a single low-point but that was probably it.

    Their execution is very "microbrand" to put it politely. Nomos are that style done well (minus the enamel). I hope they continue to refine what they are doing, but right now the designs just aren't...

    Poor Man's Credor Eichi II?

    Inspired by the surprising amount of hate on the other thread, I thought I would ask, which other watches exist that are similarly simple, clean, well executed, but don't cost 40k?

    There are lots...
