    I asked the same thing in post#2 :) I don't know if I'd be in for a sub 38mm watch. The 39mm 420 SE is already at pushing it for what I'm comfortable with.
    I do realize a lot of people like smaller watches though.

    The men's one-handers appear to be 37.6mm, and that likely holds true for a mechanical two-hand design as well.

    Re: WUS Project Interest Poll

    Confirming the standard case from Luch, whether stainless or brass, is 38 mm (and please spare me the decimals...) with 44 mm lug to lug which ain’t small. Also around 8 mm thin, depending if with or without display porthole in the back.
    This means it’s way more proportionate than a Vostok 420 automatic, which with 39 mm across is a whopping 15 mm thick — 38% relative vs 21%!
    38 is the modern size for dress watches. The classics from the sixties were 34 mm wide (as most Soviet vintages, btw), and 38 were sold as “oversize”. C’mon: this is 5% less than your modern 40 mm consensual standard!
    With this diameter, thickness, weight, you quickly forget it on the wrist and under the cuff (yup, it’s not meant for Hawaiian short sleeves).
    Especially if meant as “dress” or “formal”, the very last thing you want from a watch is being self-conscious!

    I just checked Junghans catalog, and this brand has some experience in classic elegance. Chronographs go from 40 to 42 mm. Their “retro” classics “Meister” are just the same size as the Luch, i.e. 38. Their true original classic Max Bill, the icon of bauhaus style, is 34 mm. Sorry, no divers... In more trendy, WIS brands, Nomos Glashütte latest models pair, named after Docs without Borders goes 35 and 39 mm.
    All this to say: if you don’t downsize now, you’re the one “retro”, lagging one generation behind next fashion

    Ok thanks, that's too small for me, shame as i quite liked the design.

    Calling me retro isn't a stretch :) I've had smaller/thinner watches than the 420 but they didn't stay in the collection. I can always give it another shot, but 37.6mm would be pushing it for me.

    Not by all that much: I just measured my Ca...(shhh!) OCS-100 as you know and like that reference Not counting the crown-guard, it’s 38.8 mm wide! It has also the exact same thickness as my Luch “Mova” with display back and domed sapphire: 10.5 mm. With the Mova white dial, the wrist presence is very close. And unlike the reference, it has standard 20 mm lugs

    I feel like I am in the minority here, but I LIKE them both. I will let you guys figure out the particulars, but sign me up for both!

    Re: WUS Project Interest Poll

    I do love the OCW S100. In fact, gave one to the wife :) Recently had a Dagaz Thunderbolt which was about 39 and thinner than a 420, but ended up selling that one as well.
    Because the Gaz is a Russian, and a project watch to boot, I might let this one slide though :)
    PanKorop and sideways2 like this.
