    You hit the nail on the head. I used to have 43 and 44 mm watches; now they're gone. 42 is now upper limit with 38-40 seeming and feeling perfect to me.

    I've been playing musical chairs with my straps between watches, so here's my Alpinist on hornback gator:

    Thanks, Mike! Just the look I was hoping for. You deserve a little Buffalo Trace for this post.

    Just noticed, same hands on the Prometheus Sailfish (with exception of black & red second hand), it makes sense since they use a Seiko movement...

    The SARB017 is a stunning watch, I've had mine for 7 months now and I find it difficult to wear any other watch. And I still find myself staring at it, caressing it, staring at it some more, drooling over it like an imbecile. That watch must trigger some base synapse deep in my subconscious. It's a pretty, shiny thing that tells the time. And yes I know it was made by robots, but I feel as if the robots spared no effort here, like they made this one extra-special. For the money, it's the prettiest shiny thing that tells the time that you can buy. So if you are on the fence, thinking about buying one, think no more, and you too can revel in the sickness - staring at and drooling over this very beautiful watch :)

    Trying out some different straps. This one is a natural leather from Crown and Buckle.

    Just bought a Sumo yesterday but I've had my eye on this one for a while. Definitely next on my list!

    My wife wears hers on natural leather from an eBay seller. Basically commandeered within days of its arrival from Japan. She saw it laying on the dresser with that strap and said it was the only watch I'd ever bought that she liked.
