    I have a 6.75" flat wrist and it was not the best wearing watch. Such a flat case much like the Steinhart OVM....

    I'm going to see when I get it but it might also be kind of cool to have a flater case back be a completely different feel

    one question how how flat is it? Is it completely flat like the crepes le Le ocean or has it a curve and it's the thick case back that makes it sit flat?

    Bloody hell guys, I'm 16 days into my year of fasting from buying watches, and it looks like I might already be close to folding. I saw this a week or so ago and didn't think much of it, but having just seen the fresh FB pics with it on the black nato I'm beginning to have those naughty thoughts about buying it. I've owned the Crepas Scuba 500 and Decomaster and have sold both but I've never lost any money on either, so it's not that much of a gamble. Is it an ETA 2824 or 2892, website says one thing and the case back another.

    You're tempering my enthusiasm. Ugh... maybe the cool design elements, nice build quality, and exceptional movement will tip the balance for me - but the flat case could be an issue.

    In some images it looks like the case has some curvature, but for those who wear/wore the original TC2 I know that having the real thing in hand is the acid test.

    Don't let my post temper the enthusiasm. It was a Beautiful watch and the case will probably be fine for 90% of the people who get it. The friend I sold it too loves it.

    FWIW, the case back IS a bit "bubbly" IIFC, causing the watch to sit up a bit high. I "forced the issue" on my old TC2 by cranking the bracelet tight, which is how I roll anyway, and have for the last 54 years - my wrist has a permanent "watch divot" in it LOL!

    I wear mine fairly tight too. Wasn't thrilled with the wear of either Steinhart O1 I owned but this has more distinctive styling to give it a boost.

    Taken at the right angle steinhart has curve too





    But I've have a few of that case design and never found it to be a problem. I'm sure the Tactico will be fine.
