    I would recommend the AT as well. I enjoy how their dials change dramatically depending on the lighting and viewing angel, keeping the watch fresh. I initially thought the "jump hour" would be gimmicky but it is now one of my favorite features of the watch. Let us know what you decide and remember to post pictures or it didn't happen

    They are different watches.. even though they share the same design language. the “Bond” 41mm is a slim watch with better proportions.
    The new 2018 model and the previous SMP Ceramic are not very slim..
    Good luck in your purchase.

    Went to a different AD today who had way more choices in stock. Tried on this which has put a spanner in the works as to making a decision.
    I’m paralysed with choice.

    For a first watch I would go for the Seamaster Professional

    For your wrist size and this being your only choice (for now) I’d go With the AT. But in steel and get the rubber strap too and you have the perfect one watch collection.

    Unless you have a need to wear your one and only luxury piece diving you can use a much cheaper alternative and not have to worry.

    The speedy while nice is a little on the bigger / thicker side for your watch. You definitely want your piece to be comfortable so you can wear all day.

    Good luck with your decision!

    Re: My First Watch

    Thanks for all the thoughtful replies and advice.
    Still no closer to making a decision. A few people have suggested going for a smaller size. I worry about it looking out of place and too big but after measuring my wrist (18.5cm (7.28 inches). I thought it could go for something above 40mm

    SMP for a first watch. PO is too thick but a great 2nd watch. I’m a sucker for divers. Currently rock a PO but only bc I also have a Sub and speedy.

    The PO would be my choice even if it has to be my only watch. I'm a huge fan of the PO it wears really nice on the wrist and it's also versatile IMO.
