    Does anyone have a Sinn 103 and an Orient Mako? Or, do the 41mm Sinns look larger than they are?

    I know it's an odd request but the wrist shots I'm seeing of various Sinns makes some of them look larger than their 41mm case size would suggest. I'd really love to see them both side-by-side.

    Sinn was really high on my list until I realized that many are smaller than the ~44mm size I am currently looking at. Do they look larger than their 41mm?

    Unfortunately models like the 104 (which are 44mm and look awesome) are out of my $3k price range.

    This is my Mako on my wrist and I was really looking to buy something larger.



    So can anyone help me out?

    I have a 103 St Sa and it doesn't look larger than it is. I have 6.5 inch wrists and it looks good on me, not big and not small. If you're looking for watches in the 44mm range then you need to look at different watches, because I don't think you'll be satisfied with the size.

    Seiko similar to Mako - 42mm, Sinn 40mm. Seiko looks just a bit bigger, but Sinn has longer lug to lug size.

    Do you have a wrist shot or two you could post? Unlike the OP, I'm looking at a 103 but worry it wears large due to its thickness and wide dial aperture.
