I may or may not already be in line for the new Daytona. Just sayin.
 Ahahaha, bro @rnguy001 - I picked up those words from my years in Ninja training.  
  Nakaya's Decapod Twist in ao-tamenuri, with a medium soft 14k gold nib plated with ruthenium.  Ink is Pilot Iroshizuku's Shin-Ryoku (Forest Green).

Wrist sizes are an interesting thing.  It's equally about how flat/round the wrist shape is. and how your wrist tapers up into your forearm, arm and overall body dimensions, as it is about the absolute measurement, I think.     I have a scrawny 6.25" wrist, but given how it's shaped I feel like my 42mm Snoopy Speedmaster "hangs larger" on me than my 44mm 17.5" thick DSSD.  I'm equally comfortable wearing 36mm case size pieces as well as "sportier" 44mm "monster" dive...
