First post on the Hamilton side of the fence here. I usually hang out on the Omega or Vintage/Pocket Watch forums...
I had two questions regarding the newer Ventura models. If the questions were covered before, I will apologize. I have a steel men's model that I got around 8 years ago. It has a black leather band. I see new ones with stainless steel expansion bands.. Question 1.. how well is that look going over? I saw an actor in the movie "Predators" wearing one with a metal band and thought it looked like a mistake until I saw them online.
Second question regarding size. Mine almost spans the width of my wrist. I see the sizes all over the place. I wanted to suggest one to buy for a friend, but it seems difficult to know what is a men's size and what is unisex. I even saw one described as "Gents Ladies Watch" lol I see some that just say "31mm in diameter", and others that say "38mm x 33mm". I measured mine and it looks to be around 50mm long and 33mm wide. Question 2, which model numbers are mens watches?
Well, I guess I can't leave without showing a couple of my favorites...
