    002/500 dual retrograde hands 45mm Swiss made piece.

    Photos as always aren't good but the levels on the dial are great.

    Not a watch for telling the time but just a very interesting looking watch.

    Definitely not for everyone but I like it.

    It's for my birthday which is a few months away so it's back in the safe for now.

        Yeah, but I changed the strap to a thicker one.

          That's interesting - not seen one before but nice to see something different.

          Oh, and a premature happy birthday (normally I'm late)

            Might one ask from which establishment you made the purchase?

                  They're no longer available as far as I know. They only made 500.

                      The company seem to like retrograde watches, as they seem to have produced several models.

                        I like having something that not many people have.

                        Retrograde hands are cool especially when they flip back but for accurate time keeping they're terrible due to the way the numbers line up on the dial. But I do t care much bout that.

                          Rather interesting design, which I like.

                            Having the Wittnauer dual retrograde, I can only approve your choice!

                              I've finally taken the plunge with a GMT2 BLNR at the instigation of my wife no less? It's a great watch and quite different to my first Rolex GMT2 purchased in 2002. The Cyclops appears to give off a blue hue which I though initially was a reflection from the bezel or third hand but I now think this appears to be tinted. Has anyone else noticed this with the BLNR?
