1 My 'new' 99.1 on Sun Oct 30, 2011 11:50 pm

Hi all,

A few pics of my 99.1. Had planned to have one 'custommade' but destiny would have it that a near mint watch was put up for sale not far from me. I bought it and saved 8 months waiting but missed the very special feeling of the months waiting resulting in the homebringing of YOUR special Dornblüth, this I MUST try another time.
Tried to show other pictures than just of the beautiful movement. Love the 'new' great strap that Dirk has as standard and the 'new' deployment clasp as well. The earlier straps and clasps did not hold the same high standard - to my opinion.
The angle from which the photos were taken makes the watch look almost too big to my wrist (had to avoid reflections), but I also wear Panerai and the big IWC Yacht Club Chrono so the 99.1 is in fact one of my smaller watches:-)

Congratulations, Michael, that's an absolute stunner. I really love that simple, classic and elegant dial.

Your photos, and your suggestion of a black enamel dial on Piers's thread, have really got me thinking...

I'm glad you like it, Mark. Regarding an enameled dial; I recently sold a beautiful Breitling AOPA 806 Navitimer from 1966, that watch had an original black glossy dial (with silver subdials) - really stunning!

Regards
Michael

The watch is clean, and the strap/buckle are positively beefy!

Looking at the deployant again, it does look like a step up in quality from the old one - as others have said, the original deployant didn't have the same quality feel as the rest of the package.

I really, really like that strap with that dial - an absolutely perfect combination of colour and style.
