Anders Tan at Gnomon Watches rolled out a new model that has it going on.
Start with a first rate movement, like the ETA 2452 automatic, put it in a watch styled after World War II German pilots’ watches, and jazz it up with some color. This is a complete winner. Big, but not too big at 42.5mm, with a simple, classic dial, this could have been a ‘so what’ watch, but Anders added red hands and blue lumincent markings that add just enough, but not too much flash.
Watching Ander’s line grow and mature has been a real pleasure. This one shows a great balance of class, taste, and style, and an interesting direction for his line. I am itching to see the next one.
