    I think it's an ok watch, not my cup of tea and it's a wee little watch (34mm) but I think it would be fine. If you've got a big wrist, it may not fit with the strap.

    Omega Planet Ocean 45.5mm
    Omega Aqua Terra 42mm

    Tigershark Diver 39mm
    Glycine Combat 36mm

    I wouldn't.

    Bids have well passed the value of this watch (~$300).

    The medallion on back is worn (stars not clear and pictures taken to hide this). Movement looks somewhat the worse for wear (strange wear on ratchet wheel).

    Movement (1021) is not as desirable as a 564 or 751.

    Must every watch be a hockey puck?

    This watch is from 1975 and is described as 35 mm w/o crown (not 34 mm). This is typical of watches from this period. Hardly a "wee little" watch.

    35 mm is plenty big enough for a watch. Remember, it s not the size that matters, it's what you do with it. ;<)

    The band is a standard length band. I don't see any reason why you would expect it to be too short. In any event a band is easily replaced.
