Truth is, it's not just about the size when we're talking about the RMLE's brilliance. What's fascinating is that a watch with no applied indices and all the usual unnecessary aesthetics, functionality and complications found in modern watches has turned my taste in this hobby upside down. And it's not just me. I have friends who have flipped many of their flashy watches and opted for something simple like the Rolex Explorer. I guess in a world filled with glamour and confusion, it's nice to see something pure and simple on my wrist like the RMLE. For sure, I will be keeping my "big" watches. Moving forward however, my future purchases will be limited to 39mm and smaller--and with less complications.
Cheers to this great hobby!

Im in no hurry to sell anything from my collection although some pieces even didn’t get much wrist time before the advent of the Trilogy LEs. But you’re absolutely right, I don’t want to make the mistake selling a watch to soon and then regretting it. I’ll give them time, try them again in some months and will see if they sing again to me.
