I have a Marine Original which I've owned for just over a year. I absolutely love everything about this watch except the size. I also have a Partitio and find its size (37mm) to be perfect for my taste. With the introduction of the Marine 36, I am tempted by the case proportions as well as by the three-hand dial arrangement. If I bought the 36, I'd probably sell the MO. What's stopping me? It comes down to the 6498 movement. I like the feel and the forward movement of the hands with relation to the forward movement of the crown when setting the time. I also like the idea of the slow beating pocket watch aspect of the 6498. However, when I wear the MO, I'm ever aware of its size and often find myself questioning it. Love the watch...just wish it was smaller. Incidentally, I have 7.25" wrists so the MO fits me. It's just bigger than what I usually prefer. Would you flip it for the 36?
