Back to the Future - The HD 4

From Humbert Droz -

If you had been considering this one, I am afraid you might have waited just a bit too long, because it is sold out of its first run!

I think why I love this particular model is, well, it's quirky!  It's a complex dial layout, it's a throwback to 60s and 70s pop culture (or at least kid culture), and it is priced at a sane level.

It might still be obtainable through Utinam in Besançon, one of the few authorized retail partners.

The case is of stainless steel, it is a contrarian shape (which absolutely speaks to me), and the movement is not something you will see every day   -
