Great, thanks! Any pictures of it in the wild?
sorry to go back to it, but the jacket does have shoulders of 21.25" and a p2p of 17"? Or they were indeed flipped?
That's still going on to some degree. But NYC doesn't have enough basements or allow it for it to be a thing. London is more rich people want a space bigger than their townhouse. 
Knew I shouldn't have posted it ;). Already put a bid in.

In NYC there is no mcmansion arms race. You've made it when you have an HVAC system instead of window units. 
In NYC you routinely see places with a 80% gain over the same time. Yet no shortage of construction in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Hoboken, all the shitty places between Newark and NYC ect.  I have to think its the marginal buyers pushing it up. What happens when their demand is satisfied? 
Germany also has many more tenant protections and a much lower cost of housing.Their shrinking population and non being a primarily English speaking country are the reason for this.   It's a potentially small part of ones income. It also provides stability, since you can chart your monthly payments over the life of the loan. I don't know what my rent will be next year. If one lived in NYC over the past 6 years their rent has likely doubled or more. The bank is, after all,...
The watch does look big, yes. But the guy is also wearing a plain black t-shirt. The watch is the intentional center of his outfit.  You go to Austin or Seattle and guys love that kind of look. Something vintage inspired but classic and mechanical. Also the exact target audience to spend sub $300 on a nice watch. Frankly even in NJ I see that same look a lot.  I totally get your perspective here and agree with your assessment, but I don't think we're the target audience...
I think it's exactly these contradictions that make it somewhat unique watch that may find a niche. I have a handful of (bigger) friends who like watches slightly above a surface level who would really like this watch.  I'll be in for a 36/38mm quartz if you ever make it :)
