    Hello Ladies and Gents,

    the Monodatic is one of my favourite UGs. I came across my first one in 2018 thanks to fellow UG enthusiast @MattF and since then my fascination with this model is growing and growing. There seem to be a lot of dial variants, a couple of different cases – and they are all beautiful. Let’s put our Monos together in this thread and explore the diversity of this beautiful bumper :) for starters, IMG_1824.JPG heres my two beauts.

    Very nice! I also like that model, partly because I like the UG cal. 138 bumpers.

    320966ED-3137-4349-906D-FB479D283B06.jpeg Same here :) cal. 138 is very cool and one of my favourite movements. The soft „toctoc“ is so pleasing.

    Late to the club, but very happy to be a part of it. It’s in for service, so a repost of a previous pic or two will have to do for now...

    Lovely watches chaps, I think I'm going to have to add one of these to my collection soon. The ones with the round date aperture, like the one @yala has, have a great charm to them.

    agreed and thanks! :) the porthole-date is very cool. But the very early ones feature a roulette date-wheel which is also a very nice little feature .

    I love these as well, great to see a dedicated thread. I had another gold plated waffle in really nice condition, but I can't find any pictures, don't have it anymore.

    Thank you! These waffle-dials are such pieces of art! The dial-creativity in the monodatic-line is outstanding, I think.

    @slique12 do you want to post a pic of that waffle dial in the horn lugs case, would be nice to have representation of a different case, since many/most of them are the same SS case already seen in this thread
