    Hello there! My wrists are about 6.5Ē, a little on the small side. If you can tell from the comparison pic, itís incredibly similar and wears just like a Seiko SKX does, from the width to the lug-to-lug to the thickness, very similar throughout.

    I also have to note, in my opinion pictures make the Seamaster look much bigger than it really is in person. It kind of has a bubble-lens effect and makes it look larger, whereas in reality itís not as big seeing it with your own eyes as compared to a picture.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Yep definitely a 'bubble lens' effect when taking wrist shots, it wears incredibly well and i often forget its on the wrist. I wanted to get your opinion on the bracelet? i've been thinking of picking one up for mine (stainless steel instead of two tone) down the road to alternate with the rubber. Hows the heft? and comfort level?.

    Thanks! It makes me want one even more. I tend to find my PO2500 XL a little big these days, so I wear my AT more. I have the itch to sell the PO for a new SMP300 diver in blue
    My wrist size is similar to yours. I posted some photos earlier in this post so your photos help a lot. They didn't have the blue on steal when I went to the OB.
    So feel free to post more, Noone will complain. Congrats again

    The bracelet is very good. The fit and finish is amazing and it definitely feels like solid steel on your wrist and not a chinsy bracelet. The weight is good, not too heavy. The brushing and polishing accents are done very very well. The fit and micro adjustments are very nice and IMO you can definitely get a perfect fit and adjust throughout the day easily if needed. Clasp is very solid and well made. However like others have said, it is slightly bulky. Itís nothing insane and I donít really notice it catching on anything, but since I have a desk job I do sometimes get red marks under my wrist not because itís too tight but because the clasp sits on the desk and my hand weighs down on it over long periods which gives me the marks which are sometimes uncomfortable. Again this is mainly due to my resting position but 99.9% of the time itís super comfy and amazing. Divers extension is a cool plus, and I actually use it every day to make it fit on the watch pillows in my watch box. I think when you hold this thing in person on the bracelet the only thing that comes to mind is quality, solid machining!

    Thanks for that great info Ajmercado, yep I am definitely gonna stop by the AD sometime and test it out in the metal. It does look top notch quality. Gonna see how the steel bracelet goes with my two tone.

    The blue is gorgeous. I never got to see a blue one in the metal when I was picked up my black dialed version.

    Just a question... What do you think about the text on "11" on the date?

    Does the "1" on the right look like it's leaning slightly to the left to you? I've rolled through all 31 days, and only really noticed this on "11". Every other day looks fine to me.
