I've been looking to sell off most of my collection in order to fund a FC775 - Perpetual calendar in steel. Since the watch came out early last year, I just can't stop thinking about it. I mean the balance of the watch with the 3 dials is absolutely perfect. That being said, I have noticed a few drawbacks, and although not completely deal breakers, I'd love to get your opinions on these points
1) Size - at 42mm, I know it's the new "normal" but for me it still feels a little bulky and thick for someone who's use to wearing a 38/39mm watch daily. I personally own a tudor black bay blue, and it's probably one of my least worn watches. However, having tried on the fc775 at the shop, it really doesn't feel as bulky as the tudor black bay.
2) Lack of seconds hand - I've seen a few reviews comment on this, the lack of seconds hands makes it feel less like an automatic watch since you can't see the sweeping seconds. but I feel with such a clean watch face, the seconds hand would/could over crowd the watch face.
3) Strap size - 21mm - I know you can get custom watch straps made at 21mm, however, why Frederique why.
Love to hear you guys thoughts on this!!
