Hello gents. Well, after much consideration and studying threads on this forum I thinned-out a bunch of "cheap" watches that were getting no wrist time and took the plunge this afternoon with an order for the 104 A St on strap from Watchbuys. I have just over a 7 inch wrist and think this one will work (not too small, not too large) and the numbers at least from the many photos I've viewed look to be quite legible (which is a good thing for my glaucoma and near nearsightedness.
I have had many watches over the years, but never paid more than $500 for any one of them. So, this is a big step-up for me and I think a sign of watch buying maturity in terms of quality over quantity. Sorry for the long post, but I am excited about the purchase and do plan on doing some wrist shots when it arrives. Regards to all.
