Well, sure.  I don't anticipate actually wanting to buy and wear
something like that Sinn 900.

My most-worn watch is a Damasko DA36 -- its face design, combined with
the crystal's optical coating to eliminate glare, result in a watch from
which the information just leaps directly into your brain.

The cross-hairs on the face, which I initially thought were an
unnecessary and possibly-distracting extra design element, turned out in
practice to become invisible -- and may help subconsciously with how
fast your eye/brain lock onto the watch's orientation to read it.

But no, the Damasko isn't as finely finished as an IWC.  It's a little
more rough-n-ready.
