Something I've wanted for years and finally got: a mechanical watch. It is less accurate than my plastic timex and a couple orders of magnitude more expensive. It is a NOMOS, a brand that is crying out for a '!' suffix. I've concluded that the sapphire crystal instead of glass makes a huge difference. I'm spoiled now. Swatches just won't be the same.
NOMOS! makes their own movements. Many watchmakers use factory movements from ETA, which are good, but there's something appealing about a watch company with its own mechanicals.
