    That's the thing, there is no reason for that watch to be as thick as it is. 17mm is massive for a watch that isn't a chrono.

    My new K39 just arrived. Very happy with it. The case size is fine on my 7-7.5 wrist. The thickness doesn't bother me at all either. It's mainly caused by the additional thickness of the glass case back, but visually the case looks much slimmer and in my eyes quite proportional to the overall massiveness (in a good way) of the watch. I love the design of the face of my specific model, and the tritium is a great feature to have as well.

    Bottom line, definitely a keeper for me.

    Thanks!

    Didn't look at the extra rubber one too closely yet, but the leather one seems pretty high quality - fairly thick and soft. Have been wearing the watch with it today and unlike with the cheaper Vostoks I didn't get the urge to immediately swap it.

    Cant tell from this angle but it looks borderline too big for your wrist

    What would you say is the minimum wrist size for a watch like this

    Agreed that very hard to see from the photo - it's the usual "close-up taken with a phone" phenomenon where all watches look too big. In reality it looks big but pretty reasonable, visually similar if not even smaller than a 090 in some respects .. I'll try to take more photos, but I'm not sure I'll succeed to visualize this...

    Its also a factor of whether your wrist is round vs flat. In general I feel that the lugs of a watch should be fully contained within the borders of your wrist, with skin to show past them.

    That makes sense.
