And now, gentle reader, I share with you a watch from a watch maker who I greatly admire and respect.

Daniel Nebel represents what is good, and what is right in high end watch making. No glamorous friends of the brand. No crazy partnerships with F1 teams or America's Cup wannabes, just a guy who makes cool stuff. If you find him at a watch show, you will find him and his watches.  Not a retinue of staff, not a flashy goody bag, not hyperbole.

Now, to be fair, these are not for everyone, and with the level of work, attention and craft that goes into them, they are priced accordingly.  So while I can admire Falling Water, I live in the real world where I accept that amazing things sometimes cost what they are REALLY worth, and Mr. Nebel's watches are just that - REALLY WORTH IT.

Whether you have the means and of a mind to purchase, or like me, you just want to marvel at something wonderfully cool, here are the pertinents on the QUICKINDICATOR -
