Being a new broom, I'm still wearing the Nomos Tangomat GMT from Saturday, so here's a quick iphone shot of the open case back showing the in-house Xi caliber taken at office as per your request.

Very precise so far but true accuracy will have to wait till after a month.
Heat blued hour, minute, second hands against an off white dial looks much nicer in the metal...

Personal taste and preferences evolve over years, hopefully not 1 full circle otherwise it means we haven't learnt a single thing.

This weekend will take proper pics instead of the poor smudgy iPhone shots..

There is a pusher button above the crown. Works like my Reverso GMT if you remember me showing you.
When you press the pusher, the hour hands advance by 1 hr. The 9 o'clock indicator tells you whether its +1 or +3 or -4.
The 3 o'clock indicator remains the same i.e shows your home time whereas the hour hand shows the new local time.

What's the indicator at 9 o'clock for?

Arrived late last week:

Club Automat 40mm, Epsilon movement. Superb watch, finishing and packaging is top notch. Watch strap is a tad bit too long - I'm on the first hole and I usually wear my watches a bit loose and have a above average wrist size.

I've had Damasko, Archimede, GO x 2, Erhard Junghans for awhile and recently added a Nomos...
The big one, ALS is still elusive... Germans make up abt 1/5 of my collection

Its a very personal choice but for me I would go for white or off white for simple dress watches, esp those on leather straps. I find that sporty and casual watches look better in black or dark colours.

Other German watches with in-house movements in this price range?
Casual sporty watches would be Damasko but dress watches?... none that I know of..
Nomos is a unique German manufacture..

German made watches with Swiss ETAs? plenty...

I guess white would be dressier; but if its anything like the Tangente then it's more silver than white. Haven't molested a Zurich in the flesh yet. Although the black dial do make the indices and hands pop out more..

Hopefully the mkts will be kind to me in 2014 so I can afford one of these babies  8)
