    Interesting post, Jon', but don't your conclusions simply show that the general consensus here on ATG last time was correct, i.e. you can't improve on perfection?



    Regards

    Jon'.

    Great post Jon, very ably illustrated too, as always.

    It looks better to me than the 39mm, with the hands significantly improved by a narrower and longer neck at the pinion end, as well as less "in your face" lugs.

    I think this would be my choice of the two, and at the price point, £110 cheaper than the larger version, it does well to compete with the concept of buying an original.

    An attractive proposition, I think.

    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested

    I like it. I think the hands are pretty good, to be honest. There's a fine tradition of minute hands being thinner than hours, after all!

    Any idea why only the hour hand is pointed? I did trawl through the posts back on Eddie's Forum but couldn't find the answer!

    Your bleeding-edge Now is always someone else’s past. Someone else’s ’70s bellbottoms. Grasp that and start to attain atemporality.
