    I swapped from my Everest to a Damasko DC56 a couple of days ago after @ 3.5 weeks of wearing it, it's so comfy and legible it seems a shame to change! It's been on a TSS Titan from minute 1, the bracelet is still in the case with the stickers on.

    David, just wondered if you had a side by side shot of the Everest and Bulova, to get a perspective of the moon watch.
    I've looked at the non bracelet version for months but still undecided and I have a 7.5" wrist!
    Thanks.

    Doesn't look more than a couple of mil difference in lug length and the moon watch will wear smaller due to the strap rather than bracelet.

    Mine stays on the bracelet as the watch never comes off (save for mountain biking) and goes sailing, swimming and snorkelling so the bracelet dries quickly and sea water doesn't do any harm to it (completely buggers leather and canvas). I also love the way Plexi makes the watch looks lived-in, especially with a few scuffs on it.
    Top all-round watch, damn accurate too.

    I'll have another go on Sunday, and if I still cannot do it then it's on it's way to you.

    It's probably just a knack/technique, I never had problems with SKX's when lots of people do.

    I think it's just the knack. When you put the end link to the watch, make sure it's lying flat against the back of the lugs with both spring bars over lapping the lugs. Then push one spring bar inside the case, followed by the other and wriggle until you hear the clicks. You might need to put the forked end of the spring bar tool into the recess just to slightly work the bar into the hole. I test the alignment by putting the pointed end of the spring bar tool into the lug hole from the outside and, if the tool and the spring bar line up then it's in securely.

    I'm more then happy to do it for you though.

    I think I just got past it last time I tried (in my mind I was doing it exactly as you described haha). I'll give you a shout if I fail again. Cheers, Ant.

    This watch is the reason I joined, still deciding if I should bite the bullet and just order, I usually like to try before I buy. Looks great on brown leather, IMO. Surprised by the size comparison shot with the bulova moon watch, I thought it would appear smaller.

    Honestly, just buy it. I ummed and ahhed for about 5 years. Finally got one at Christmas. It's far and away my most worn. It is so versatile: from suit and tie, to jeans and t-shirt, it just works.

    It doesn't look bad on tan either!

    Ambiguous question but does it wear larger than its 40mm? I had imagined that it would be a smaller, dressier watch than my 42mm ish divers. I was just surprised how it looked next to the bulova moonwatch which I think is 45mm? That said it seems a good size in the wrist shots.

    As the latest wrist shots are mine let me take a stab at an answer!

    Of course it's only been a couple of days but I don't find it noticeably wears any larger than it's size would suggest. Comparing it to either my Seiko Monsters or my Sub, which generally get most wrist time, it has the same sense of just seeming to feel "right".

    Admittedly I've only had it on thick leather straps and perhaps if I'd had it on Perlon then the additional size might have been more noticeable - I'll maybe give that a try at the weekend.

    Looking now, it could be the length of the lugs that could possibly prove problematic for someone with smaller wrists? I am sure others will offer their opinions on that.

    Thanks for all the comparisons. I think it wears bigger than I had imagined but certainly no bigger than what I think is comfortable for me.

    It's odd how comparison shots with other models plays trick on the eye, we'll my anyway.

    It 100% wears large. The flattish case/lugs make it seem larger than it is. I wear a few 44mm (turtle, sumo etc) and this wears as long as them to me, obviously with a smaller dial. Great watch and very suitable for most situations be it smart or casual.
