    If it hadn't been for apple being sued, I would never have heard of Mondaine
    but now I know about them, I really like the simplicity and I might buy one :)

    I had seen them in a local jewelry shop, but they were too expensive.Then I found a simple one online at a good price. No date or other complications...just the time. I really love the design!

    I think those watches look sharp, but I can't see spending too much money on watches in this day and age - heck I don't even wear a watch anyone more.

    Agree. Stopped wearing one when I retired, and never was lost to know the time.

    Hell, cell phones all have the time built-in, so why wear a watch, except for the statement it makes?

    Good, or bad. ;)

    I bought this one 11 years ago. Changed the battery twice in that time. It's a real workhorse

    I've had one for a little while now. I've been quite happy with it, and I love the design and simplicity.

    Partly that reason and partly because of karate. Watches and karate don't mix too well

    A google search turned up a lot of sites selling the watch.

    The link below is where I bought mine. They are an authorized Mondaine dealer which is important should there be problems under warrantee.

    EDIT: Oops, just noticed you are in the UK. I don't know if Princeton Watches ships that far out of town! Sorry...:eek:
