Call me conservative but these look the best of bunch this year. Sizes are great too.

They look nice but I bet you they all suffer from NLD

Nomos Lug Disease? Not really. The straps touch the case from what I can see.

The new one rotates!

I think these look great - hopefully that lug gap has been remedied with these new versions...

I like these new ones (really like the existing white GMT as well).

Chrono is hot but costs the same as a Speedy Pro.

Anyone see the new chronographs in person yet? Discounted price isn't too bad.

The orange on does look good. The date window is least offensive on that version.

Orange one is fantastic, wonder if the lug holes are closer than the models in the beginning of this thread

I like that black one. The orange reminds me of the Omega tin tin, which I find oddly attractive.

Hmm. At that price, I'd have a difficult time choosing this over a speed pro boxed kit for a few hundred more, but if these drop down to $2500, it'd be a serious contender in that price bracket.
