    Should have been more specific, when the crown's pulled out to adjust the hands pulling the crown out moves the date wheel onto the next date then springs back to the hand wind position, does that make sense? Quite ingenious really.

    One thing that bugs me about this watch is the three different fonts on the face.

    I’m still allowed to be ‘bugged’, and it’s 4 fonts if you count the day/date! What’s the world coming to??

    Only two fonts on this sensible German piece.

    The most wonderful piece of engineering ever. I'll take some pictures tomorrow and post them.



    Last week I sold all of my watches and bought that one and a Sinn 857 UTC. I'm only buying Sinns from now on as they're the only watch manufacturer who do it for me.

    I've owned well in excess of a thousand watches over the years, and for me nothing compares to a Sinn. I've had them all; Omegas, Breitlings, Rolexes, Seikos, IWCs, etc etc.

    The 857 UTC...
