i got a call from Wempe today, and went over to have a look at the EWC.
fantastic watch, but the size takes some getting used to, im coming from a Submariner.
another thing thats "optically unsual" is that the face itself isnt that big, compared to the watch diameter its rather small. probably because of the wide bezel (i mean the polished ring around the face), its pretty wide i think.
the watch was nr 995 or 993 couldt quite see it and i found that when setting the time on any full hour the GMT ring doesnt always correspond with the time. Say i´ve put the watch (main time)on 13 o´clock, the ring would show smth like 12-45. when you wind the main time past 13 and then back to 13 then the GMT ring ist correct, but not before.
Is that the problem which has been previosly discussed??
i really like the watch but this "malfunction" somewhat put me off...
all coments welcome!
tomorrow i´m going to another dealer, to see another EWC, will check if it has the same problem with the GMT ring.
