WristScan: Thank you very much! I love time-only watches especially manual-winding

In fact, 2/3 of the collection comprises time-only watches at this time, the majority (~85%) of which are manual-winding. There is a pleasing simplicity to time-only watches.

WristScan: The Patrimony Traditionelle is one of my favourites! Love yours!

I have the grey version too and it is a classic dress watch. Perfectly sized at 38mm, sexy cal 4400, and very understated and classy.

WristScan: Those time-only jumbo vintage watches are superb!

The Omega 2505,and particularly the Longines 4914, where the case is curvaceous yet assertive. One of my favourite vintage Longines references!

WristScan: That Habring2 Erwin Scientific is a lovely and rare one - I think there were only 10 or 12 made at most by Martin Pulli and Habring2

I used to have one, foolishly sold it, regretted it, and fortunately made up for it by getting the Habring2 TZ21 also with the same jumping seconds complication. Habring2 makes fantastic watches for the money! And they're such a lovely couple.

WristScan: I love time-only watches, Vintage or Modern

Vintage offers a wide palette of Time Only choices, which can be from the "Big 3" of PP AP & VC Or from relatively more obscure vintage brands. Modern time-only Indies also provide much enjoyment. A Holthinrichs Raw Ornament is a delight on the wrist... while this last one deserves a special mention

WristScan: Whether vintage or modern, established brands or indies, or cased in gold, steel or platinum, 37-38mm is my sweet spot

In increasing order of size... A 37mm vintage Vacheron in YG Doxa now makes dive watches, but back in the day, they made some lovely time-only watches, like this 37.5mm with a gilt dial Modern indies in 38mm fit me well, with this Laine V38 being particularly comfortable on my wrist - I love its SS
