    If you are talking the RGM Pilot 150 it needs to have a place in my watchbox! I still maintain it is one of the most beautiful watches I have ever owned. The blue dial is amazing!

      Oddly enough, Mr. FuzzyB, I do not mind the mix on the new Black Bay Heritage.
      Wink, wink, nudge, nudge

      Once seeing it in person... yow!

        No thanks--it's nice to look at on-line, but I doubt I would keep it.

          That first shot of your Nomos is wonderful Brian!

              Thanks, Henry. I got frustrated trying to get a decent shot of the dial color and decided to go dark and moody. It works well for that watch.

                Dark and moody works for me in a general way.

                  Just found this link to u-tube https://youtu.be/hTmYPIykahA about the Rado D-Star 200.
                  Here is a screenshot I took out of this video.
                  Amazing blue dial.

                    I wouldn't be surprised if the markers are actually silver. Stowa just released a limited edition for an Asian market that had a silvery gray 12.
                    Vaguely reminiscent of that is this Laco Philidelphia, which I hadn't heard of before. Interesting watch - despite that strong bezel and the sharply angled lugs, its only 36mm. 2824 movement, and not cheap.



                    Those hands look rather less brilliant against the blue sunburst in a more real photo:



                    I suppose at 36mm a present-day watch like that is considered to be either unisex or explicitly for women, so the choice of hands isn't surprising. Personally would like to see lumed syringe hands. I wonder how delicately they can be done?

                      While looking up Lord Matics, came across this amazing dial

                        That is cool. Is it a linen dial?

                          I'm really very confused by the texture. He's the clearest shot I've yet found of one

                              Nice to see them branching out from the silver and black. That is one I'd have to see in person. In the wrist shot, the dial looks a bit sparse, but I imagine the sparkle of the markers will help.
