That’s a nice looking Nomos Club knockoff, but with manageable lugs. At like $100 I wonder what the actual finish is like…

I don’t know if a women’s specific line would have enough demand for a microbrand to be able to justify the investment. This hobby skews very male.

That said, Kuoe primarily works with 34mm case sizes and I just saw that Kurono recently announced a 34mm model. Neither are marketed as a women’s watch though.

I also think 36mm watches could also be considered unisex. My wife has slender wrists and my 36mm Farer looks perfectly natural on her.

commented on Game: pick one watch that most represents each brand ·

Honestly I’m not sure if it’d be the Mark line or a big pilot.

commented on GADA watch ·

My two day-to-day watches. The IWC is perhaps more of a GADA in that it has 100m of WR while the Farer does not have a screw down crown, but the Farer can look a bit more dressy with a navy blue shell cordovan strap.

My wife occasionally rocks my 36mm resolute w a 41mm L2L. The stock strap is too thick for either of us but it looks great on her wrist when on this bright blue Delugs strap.

commented on NWA - IWC Big Pilot - Any more enthusiasts? ·

I have a 6.5” wrist and the Mark XX feels perfect - the lugs are a little more compact than the earlier editions. If you like the look it’s at least worth trying on at the AD.

commented on What are you eyeing to buy in 2024 ·

Yep. For the rest of us fair wristed folk there’s the Mark XX and the 41mm pilot chronos
