    Don't take this the wrong way, but I think we should be careful of chasing trends - I wouldn't want to be buying back 40mm+ watches in a couple of years!

    I hope nobody takes offence at this - I'm just saying. We're all different of course, but I think you can enjoy all sizes of watch in a single collection...
    i enjoyed taking this 42mm stallion out in the wild today.

    I'm wearing this again...

    ...but I can't remember what size it is!

    EDIT: a quick measurement tells me 38-39mm square...

    Thanks. That is a 36mm Oyster Perpetual (OP), reference 116000 with Mercedes hands. The 114270 36mm Explorer cannot easily get a jubilee bracelet since the lug position is differenet versus many other Rolexes; older explorers (14270 etc) or newer 214270 (39mm) would fit without modifications

    Of course it is. Just noticed your names and realised Iíve admired your OP before. Funny you hardly notice the blue in this shot.

    First, to each his own!

    My point is that the Railmaster and the Seamaster 300 have proofed me something I had never expected. That these small sizes can be worn even from a guy with a wrist size > 8ď like me. I used to wear watches around 44mm and bigger in the past because I was convinced smaller sizes would look ridiculous on my wrist, like women watches. The Trilogy pieces have changed my aesthetically perception totally because I really love now how the watch wraps around my wrist instead just sitting on top. Therefore, albeit there seems to be a trend toward smaller watches, itís no trend for me personally. Itís just a question of personal preferences.
