    Re: My First Watch

    I'd say it depends on how you plan to wear them. I have two POs, 43mm GMT and big Chrono and while both are good for casual style, they are a little too thick for suite. 43mm GMT is still manageable though.

    But if you want one watch, the best all-arounder, it's definitely 300m for me. Have just bought two within a week time. Perfect for both casual and classic, thin and light, specially on rubber. You can't go wrong with Seamaster 300m. Also added a PO GMT for comparison. I have 7' wrist.

    It was a 'must have' for me when they first came out. But always part of a collection. Sure I wore it to the office on occasion but it's not really intended for wearing with business shirts. The newer POs somehow feel even chunkier. I like that.

    Here's my first 2500c that I sold due to movement failures


    In summer we wear polo shirts to the office so I will wear this on occasion. Unless I'm working on hardware (medium level risk of scratching it)

    Looks like you really like it! But Im sure there is a market for it, otherwise they would have stopped making them hahaha

    But in all seriousness, my wrists are puny, it just commands alot of presence, and wobbles here and there because I dont have enough space for it to land properly on

    I do wish I could rock larger watches, as I have my eyes on quite a few

    Easy - for only one watch

    Semaster PRO - not too thick, still goes 300m! and can GADA, suit to snorkel to submarine

    That dial layout is sooo balanced.

    My SMP is #1 in my collection with most wrist time after the G shock.

    If I could only have 1 watch it would be the G shock and the SMP ;)

    Thanks for all the helpful replies. Those photos are all on my Wrist. Both the Aquaterra and planet ocean are the larger sized versions. My Wrist is 18.5cm (7.28 inches).
    I tried on the 38mm Aquaterra and the salesman said it looked too small and I should definitely get the 41mm. I thought it looked ok personally.

    Well if you say it looked fine that’s all that matters. Got a pic? You don‘t have to please the salesman, only yourself.

    Re: My First Watch

    I would go PO, been waiting to get one myself.

    I've never been a SMP fan, and I also hate the bracelets. I like the aqua terra as well if its going to be an everyday all the time watch.

    I'm looking at AT... so I'll pick AT. I like the jumping hour hands. It depends... 8900 movement? My first "watch" was a speedy.
