The Mighty Murph!

I do not own this watch but I like it just as much as everyone else who likes it, but why? No kidding the first time I saw one in a jewelry case I was mesmerized and this is before I knew it was a famous watch. Not sure if it鈥檚 the numbers or symmetry but maybe you can explain what is so awesome about this watch, then I鈥檒l know why I like it! 馃槀馃槀馃槀

It鈥檚 not only a watch on a wrist in a movie but part of the plot.

It鈥檚 the same as why everything thinks the DeLorean is so cool.

It's a military design that's designed to be practical not aesthetically pleasing but for me that's the charm.

I love the vintage classical black dial and cathedral handset. Simple, elegant and practical all in one.

陌t doesn't have a weak point

I bought it and returned it right away. The lack of AR coating made me feel like I was looking in a mirror when I looked at the dial. That鈥檚 just me though its beloved by many!

Same experience as @lla2891 . One of my favourite films, love the design but it lasted only a few days before the lack of legibility due to no AR coating ment I couldn't live with it. Dame shame, beautiful watch but utterly useless for me. 馃槩

Prefer this Murph than their Khaki Field watch.

I think it's niche cool, but you have to be into the niche - ie the movie. Otherwise it's a very nice Hamilton that offers a refreshing alternative to the Khaki Field lines.

It is a beauty. I already own a Serica 4512, which is very similar, but still like, and might at some point add, the Murph to my collection. The design elements set the watch apart in my opinion. The combination of cathedral hands, font choice for the numerals and quite prominent minute track on the edge create harmony in the dial and make it one of a kind.

Stellar piece and one of my absolute favorite field watches 馃ぉ

Honestly it鈥檚 got to be the numbers. Never seen font like that on another watch. It鈥檚 so clean and the Mercedes hands are a perfect match for the dial. Absolute class

For me it has three out standing visual characteristics.

1) The Arabic numbers, I particularly like the open 6 and 9.

2) The hand set, such a great example of cathedral hands with the needle at the end. 馃槝

3) The coloring having just enough 鈥渁ging鈥 that is not in your face To me it comes off warm and inviting and comforting some how.
