    So, you are smart to grab 2! ....like me having bought 2 Omega X-33s which I loved!
    The only other one I can think of is the Seiko SNKM97 retro watch from Seiko's Recraft line. It is dressy in a 1970's way

    Many say the Sumo is best bang for buck with Seiko.
    I say the Alpinist SARB017 is.
    :)

    Dont forget, steelback.
    Screw in crown, waterproof doubles the Sargies.
    Details, and the compass is quiet, not gorging around as its will.

    Must. Get. Sarb017.
    I was worried it would be too small having been used to 40-42 mm. I was wrong, it's perfect.

    Here some appetizers of my rocked, old Alpinist on a crazy Nato/Zulu. The new one is sleeping in the box.
    Fairly ok, the show of the old lady, right?

    The lume shot is a litte unclear.

    The compass ring holds its position perfect.
    I played with it - like you can see.

    :)

    I thought about that too....40-42mm is my sweet spot. Haven't worn anything under 40mm in a long while.

    Hi, I ordered a tuna 015 recently from Chino as well and it took 6 days to deliver..not bad since it cleared Canadian customs within that period... Waiting..

    Be careful because my nice thinner 38 and 40mm watches have me looking at my MM300 and thinking I should flip it because it's too big and heavy.

    Yea it will depend on your wrist and your taste. I'm pleasantly surprised by it.
