Going JDM Digital today. Casio GW-5000.
Kontiki on GF bracelet
Count down to lock down.
Today I shall wear the thinner of these two. The classic 168.005 pie pan and the 5441 Portuguese.
The difference in width is obvious, 34 vs 42mm.
The 5441's movement with it's pocket watch ancestry is wider than the entire pie pan's case!
But how about their thicknesses? Here we go.
That's right, the Port is amazingly thin...YaY!
I can never seem to capture a good picture of this watch.
None of them ever represent it well. I blame the lighting in my office.
Reset button. Watch in case he takes a dive.
Day 3 of the tour through my meager collection.
Love those markers. They have such depth and character.
Love it. How are you finding it?
When thin was in.....Piquette powered by a very thin Peseux 7000 series movement, the basis for a number of other calibres -- e.g., Junghans J815, Montblanc MB23.01, Omega 651, among others.
I really like it, I recommended Nomos as a Brand to many of my friends but never bought one myself.
It wears great on my small wrist and due to the very thin case (under 7mm) it fits easy under a cuff.
The movement has a finishing that I find pleasent and overall it feels solid and well build. I really like that the details are well done. The coolest part of this Ref.173 is the black dial, that is less comon than the white and the moving power reserve. If you can get one used you are having a great deal.
Vintage Super Compressor case at 40mm is very cool for a vintage.
