I'm considering the purchase of the 50th anniversary chronograph. I have a super trusted ebay seller that has them for 2900 Euros instead of 3700, and the good stuff is that since it's a December release I can pay in several times until delivery day. So while expensive, I can afford it if stretching the budget quite a bit.
I think I can somehow get over the Prospex logo as I'm so in love with the rest of the dial, I'm even in the minority that prefers the round date window to the previous square one. BUT I have one concern remaining: thickness.
My wrist is on the small side (around 6.75 inches) and I never buy watches above 41mm. This one fits this criteria, but I've never owned a 16mm thick watch, and have no clue about the consequent presence. It means the case is a little thicker than 14, and the rest goes to the box sapphire crystal. Anyone with a small wrist has experience with thicker watches and can tell me how it feels on the wrist?
PS: my current daily wearers are around 10mm (Stowa Flieger handwound and Seiko SJE073 Baby Snowflake), 11mm (Eterna Kontiki 39mm from 2005) and the thickest I own is a little over 12mm (Seiko SPB069 blue enamel). So 16 is a whole 4mm more than my thickest watch, reason why I have absolutely no clue how it feels.
