    Note the discrepancy in this photo posted earlier by Jeep99dad. See how much grayer the hands look compared to the indices?

    Just very excited for this one, the size, the colors, drilled lugs, jeep99dad has shown its strap friendly which makes me super excited.

    Yes, I definitely will be wearing mine on a Nato ... don't particularly like that kind of end link, where it protrudes out.

    Not right for those with smaller wrist sizes !!!

    Wrist size around 6.5 ".

    The style of end link on the Bull Shark is much better suited to smaller wrists ...

    Regards,
    From what I see, the lugs are quite curved so hopefully it will fit smaller wrist just fine.

    Because I have 6.5" too! ><

    I agree. It's actually one of the few improvement points I had pointed in my review. Felt the same when i first tried it but it's a strap watch for me
