    1200T Seems perfect to me, The 300 Limited's were more suited for my wife. Dial way small.

    I think the small dial and the bubble glass make the Sub300 unique.

    Makes it classic '60's-'70's.

    For me my 40mm Rolex Milgauss is about perfect for a modern mens sports watch size, my Tudor Blackbay at 41mm is about right for a diver. My 42mm Breitling and Sinn divers are borderline too large (I have a 7 1/2" wrist and am 6'2" 185#).
    I for one am glad the trend is away from 42mm+ watches and back to the classically size 36mm-42mm.

    I wish people who post this would give their wrist size and what size watch they consider to be optimal.
    That gives us some perspective on what wrist to watch size ratio you think looks right.

    I'm 7 1/2" wrist and think 39mm-40mm is perfect.
    I know some guys who think a 45mm looks great on their 6 1/2" wrist.
    If you're close in watch preference to me then your post means something to me, if your closer to the latter then I know we have different taste and I'll move along.

    I have the same wrist size and agree. My personal preference is 37mm - 42mm with 39-40 being perfect. Nothing wrong with falling on either side, but at 36mm starts to look "noticeably smaller" (not too small mind you) and at 43mm, again, it feels noticeably large.

    I am not a giant watch fan, I think my Sub and Speedy are just fine, even for my big wrist. It really is just that the dial is too small for my comfort. Anyway, I am going to sell it and consider a larger Pro, or maybe a Project Aware - but I have taken a liking to the Tudor Ranger, so I may skip on getting another diver for now.

    I agree the dial looks small, but I have been wearing the 750T Pro which I love. When I think the 750 looks big, I put on the G Shock, after which I can wear a wall clock on my wrist and think it looks small.

    I love the look of it, but I found the Pro difficult to read, however my Searambler quite easy with it's silver dial.

    No problem reading it - it just looks more like jewelry to me than a watch with that little dial. I know it is true to the original and is very cool, but...
