    A good point of comparison with the 'Kontiki' (Shangtiki?) would be the HMT White Pilot (resurrected as a project by the Affordables forum a few years ago) in that the bolder hands and markers cause the dial to stand out more than on the conservative 'business-wear' Zuan Shi. This helps to compensate for the lack of overall size normally associated with a 'casual' watch.

    It's indeed a 35-36mm case. My wrist size isn't particulary small or wide (18-19 cm). I've been eye-balling that kontiki homage and most likely will order it soon as it does seem good for casual wear.
    I have a wide-range of watches up to 45mm and my favorite size to wear is this one.

    For the price don't hesitate ;)

    Chascomm, thanks for the reply! I remembered I have a HMT with some problems somewhere, I have to put it on the wrist again to see how it looks.

    @aageon, yap, the price is unbeatable.
