    Thank you for the suggestion but the movement I was going to use is an NH36 not the 4R36. Or am I not understanding. Are the stems the same for both?

    Thank you.. I don't find the watch heavy. No more than my SKX. I realise it was an impossible question but I wondered how comfortable the bracelet was over an oyster type.
