I'm looking to possibly acquire a 156 or 256 to accompany my 556. I really love the size of the 556 on my 7 1/4" wrist. In comparing the 156 to 256 there is quite a difference in case diameter as well as lug-to-lug distance—which is the biggest factor in wearability imo. There is also price, the 256 seems to consistently come in at 75-100% more than the 156, despite the 156 using the coveted Lemania 5100 movement. Why is this? Supply numbers? Rarity/scarcity?
Can anyone shed some light on cost difference as well as wearability and ownership of either watch? I love the price point of the 156, but am concerned it's 51mm l-2-l is just too big for my small wrist.
