    As with anything, if you don't like the asking price don't buy it. I want 50,000 for my car, the problem is no one will pay it!

    I was going to buy one 'til I saw the size of the damn thing! Love the design, but I wish they'd stuck to the dimensions of the original.

    I bought the 41mm DS Action Titanium dive watch instead,...

    I just left the bezel where it was. I do actually use it to time stuff! 😉

    Thanks!

    Those skeleton hands - not something I'm normally fond of - are extremely shiny and tricky to photograph. I could've done a better job but I was just messing.

    To be honest, if I've got...

    In a mad moment the other day, I almost pulled the trigger on a Timex Marlin 34mm in order to scratch that mechanical/vintage itch. I decided 175 was too much for a bloody Timex with a cheapo...

    It's nice isn't it! It's available in stainless too, which is even more affordable. I decided to pay the extra for the weight saving!

    It does look like it in that photo doesn't it! I noticed that myself but couldn't be bothered to take another shot. Photographing one's own wrist isn't much fun!

    Plenty big enough isn't it!

    Anyway, I've admitted defeat and ordered a 41mm Certina. I was in Argos earlier and tried on one of those ridiculous new Citizens (the BN0085-01E I think) and I was...

    Agreed on all points. The lugs are critical to a good fit; some of these large, sticky-outy crowns can affect comfort too.

    Silly isn't it: 300m and more, with helium release valves etc. I knew a guy with a Sea Dweller who didn't even wear it in the bath!

    WTF is THAT??!!


    Indeed. To each their own. Interesting you mention hand size, I've got small wrists but massive hands so I can often get away with bigger watches; I'm not mad keen on them...

    I've got small wrists - about the same as yours - but enormous hands (I can make a 13th on the piano!), so I can get away with wearing larger watches but I don't particularly like them.

    Not the worst idea of all time, but they're sold out!

    Interestingly, a lot of these G10-style watches are sold out, there seems to be healthy demand for military-style timepieces that aren't huge....

    That's pretty, but there's something a bit 'faux-dive' about it - somehow a bit shiny and water resistance down at 100m.

    I'm still very tempted to get a Certina DS PH200M - it's too big but aren't...

    Yeah, that's what concerns me. I can't believe they haven't fixed that, pretty much every other manufacturer of similar watches applies an anti-reflective coating!

    Sure, I'll grant with both hands that people with big wrists are likely to be happier with bigger watches, although barring extremes, I would think 40mm would look pretty large on any wrist.

    Absolutely, once you get past non-G-Shock Casios and the likes of the Timex Expedition, most watch prices are insane. Look at the classic G-Shock DW-5600 - one of my all time favourites. I love the...

    I don't see a 36mm Khaki on any websites, but 38mm would do. I just need to have a think about which model. As I said on another thread, your choice is...
