Thread: New (to me ) arrival!

  1. #1

    New (to me ) arrival!

    Well chuffed to have my first mono hander!








    Forst Miyota too, for me. Seems an able and not unpleasant to look at engine.



    Good quality oem strap and buckle. And a perfect size imo at 42mm. Well made case with some good shaping and angles.

    I like the Bauhaus style, and more affordable than the pricey Miestersingers.
    Well pleased, and thanks to Rousey for a good deal!

    Forgot to show the interesting oem felt 'underlay' it comes shipped with that serves as a watch cushion!

    Nope - couldnít live with a one-handed watch.......... sorry!

    The older folk here will remember Hylda Bakerís catchline:

    ĒItís a quarter past........I must get a little hand on this watch!Ē

    Soon get used to it. Limiting yourself to having to know the exact minutes is a rod for your own back. its really quite fun I have found

    Iím glad you purchased this, as really liked the look & happy you like it - saved me buying another watch on a whim.

    Much prefer this to the normal look of the single hands, just a little bit different.

    It's sort of hypnotic

    Easy, about 11.43 give or take a minute in the lit image above.

    Lumey..


    This is my only minor criticism; if you leave your watch on the nightstand, all the lights are out, how do you know where 12 is, so you can tell where the main hand is in relation?
    I can live with that though.

    Thought about a mono-hand myself. I wasn't really aware of them until social media got spammed with the slow watches, the novelty appeals.
