    Good advice - it's my wife who loves an auction, rather than me, and she'll go and be very careful about not just buying something because it's there, when it might not be right! Take your time.

    The only watch I've ever considered to be a "holiday watch" (so, I guess, a summer watch), is this Nomos Ahoi Atlantik, especially on the supplied Nylon strap, or on this Peron-type.

    It's a good question. I've flipped watches on for being a few mm too small (36mm Ex I) or a few mm too big (Eterna Four-Hands). I've condemned watches for the tiniest defects (the MkI dialled D66,...
