    Cartoon: Oh the Horror-ology

    While many of us don't use the metric system, we seem oddly expert on the chasmic difference in a couple of millimeters.

    Well, to be fair, given that we obsess over machinery that uses pieces as small as they do, a couple of mm doesn't strike me as that surprising.

    Metric inches are another abomination here. Is this watch too big for my 6.75” wrist?

    When you pay $6K for a watch that you’ll wear for the rest of your life (everyone’s intention), two millimeters count.

    A 48mm L2L watch I can pull off. A 50mm L2L watch I cannot. That 2mm makes all the difference in the world.

    Missing the point of the cartoon.

    Yours is a rational reaction...the difference between too big and OK. The cartoon's about the size queens...where 42mm is ALWAYS too large. It could also be the other way...36? Kiddy watch. 38? Classic dress! Or beat rate. Or in-house vs. ebauche.
