Still a porthole on the back, but not serving as the counter display

It makes sense he would do it this way having come up with so many dot-in-hole displays for the Ochs & Jr line. HERE IS THE WEBSITE Now do I need another one? It is kinda big... And the crystal is very reflective! ...  

That was actually an accident

I didn't see it until I put the photos from camera onto my hard drive

Anyone know the weight...

Info I need. No money for watches after The Last One.

Beautiful Watch

I am on the fence with this one… it is a rather interesting watch which was first released years back. Will it be delivered with the same packaging as before ?

You mean wrapped in a newspaper?

in a cheap cardboard box? This was 16 years ago for me, my first MIH. I got a second one later from Toren Smith, a well-known anime cartoon guy. but I sold it off to my friend Alec, a Scottish, whiskey-drinking, two-wrist watch collector. ...  

Sorely tempted by this as I regretted not getting the first iteration.

Would be nice to see it in the metal first though.

A Genius watch.

For me the original MIH showed better than it wore.

I got mine in September, 2007, and recently sold it here. I found the watch totally eye catching, as did everyone who saw it. But it was operationally pretty unrefined, despite being pleasant to look at. And certainly fun to imagine the awesome collaborat...

I always loved the brutal design of the original, and now this one, but never had one on the wrist.

Just my opinion based on my ownership and preference.

A few things. I didn't like having to run the chrono in order to get a funcional seconds hand. And having the minute accumulator on the back rendered the chrono function pretty useless. And the date changes at midnight *and* noon were to me an annoyance. ... 

If I didn't already own the orig. piece from '08, I'd be grabbing this for sure!

Love the upgraded 30 min counter dial side, that is actually practical, rather than what is on my piece ;-) Cheers, Tim
