    Two weeks, two Nomos.

    Do you think I like the marque?

    Very nice Dave. I love the Metro. Did that come from SC by any chance?

    Big fan of the metro too - quirky and different which is good if you're not a huge fan of the standard Nomos look. Congrats with both - interesting date complication on the other Nomos too. What sold you on Nomos?

    No, not from SC. I like to buy new where possible.

    Me too. I'm keeping an eye on Watches Of Mayfair. They are the cheapest I've found so far but the £ keeps weakening so the prices are going up.

    Both lovely watches. The little splash of colour on the Metro is very nice. I’m also a Nomos fan. This is mine and it’s staying with me.

    No but thanks for the suggestion. They are a little more expensive but will keep my eye on them 👍

    Very nice

    I've had a few Nomos, mainly Clubs in different guises, but not for a long time.

    However, while idly browsing the pre-owned section of an online store I was led to via a thread on here (isn't that how it always happens?), I was struck by this one …



    Only 12 months old, mint condition and a new brown cordovan strap, so I couldn't resist. I needed some contrast to all the divers, military and sports watches in the box

    Snap!



    Thinking of trading mine in for one of the more colourful versions now though, I was using it as a dress watch but haven't worn a suit since lockdown.

    Love Nomos but on the ones I've tried the lugs usually make it wear too big for my wirst.

    The Orions are shorter lugs than a lot of the others I think. I agree that the lug to lug can be quite large, but then they make a bunch of different sizes for a reason. I think a lot of people write off the smaller sizes even though they wear a lot bigger than you'd think.

    I can confirm this is the case. I received the 38 Date today and the lugs are definitely shorter than the Clubs I owned.




    There's hardly any gap between case and strap, whereas on the Club you could drive a bus through.




    I'm still not sure about it though – it wears quite large for a 38.5mm

    It does wear large still, but it's so thin which I think compensates.

    You might find that 35mm is the right size though, most people ignore it because it sounds tiny but it wears more like a 38.
