It's 40.5 mm, but I'm a big guy at 6'2" 205 so I needed something a little bigger. Finally, it's available on the internet for $805 and I was trying to stay within their price range, which is less than $1000.
Fair enough. You know that you can put a brown leather band on virtually any watch you like, right? It should not drive your purchase decision at all...
In the <$1000 category, it is not a bad choice, although I would probably go for a Stowa (e.g. Antea or Marine below) or a classi Hamilton (e.g. the Linwood below)
