I was in Münster for the weekend (Weihnachtsmarkt) and had a chance to handle the Limited Oeding-Erdel Nomos Tangente Automatik watches.

And I'm very sorry to say that both watches didn't appeal to me at all. Esp. The Orange version was IMHO plain ugly. The hands look ridiculous: all orange with a big silver centre.
The black model is OK, but I'd rather go for the original Automatik!

Didn't get a chance to see many more watches: Too many paople and a wife and kids waiting for me :(

Hi -

We must have just missed each other! I was there as well...

It's a great shop for high-end. I also looked at the Orange version, and it'd be a nightmare for me to read: I'm slightly colorblind, and couldn't see any difference between the hands and the face. Not good.

And I was also with my wife and a friend of hers, both rolling their eyes and saying to themselves "like *he* needs another watch...".

:)
