    Decisions decisions

    FC705 or FC703? Modern or classic size? I think they both work. The 705 has more wrist presence without being overly large, but wondering if the 703 will be what I want to wear down the road? I am aware the 705 is the original design which does appeal to me.

    It's all a matter of choice. I love small to "tiny" watches on my wrist so I'd go for the smaller one. Is there a difference in price?

    I think either would work but prefer the former.

    Yes, the 705 is about $200 less expensive which is a definite factor for my decision.

    I like the 703, but no wrong choice. Both are great looking watches.

    They both look good. The larger one would be more versatile casually (it is not too big) and the smaller one would be more dressy.

    To wrap this thread up I decided to go with the 705. As mcpalmer said I think it is a bit more flexible. One other consideration was that the 703 had a very noisy and rattle with its rotor. I certainly could have exchanged it but my mind was made up at that point. Here are the required pics.

    Currently in the same boat! Purchased the 705 almost two months ago and seemed a little too big for me personally (6.5" wrist). Actually sold it last night and will be going for the 703. Beautiful watches for the

    Yes, the 705 is 2 bills less if it is size you are attempting to decide they both look like the same size to me. If you're wrist isn't real small or real big I would just call it best out of 3 and flip a coin by yourself, honestly. They both are real lookers.
