Hey, my taste works for me but maybe not for you. Here it is in different colors and with different straps:

It's beyond me why they would discontinue something like the Blue Spark. Have people just come to expect ugly watches and therefore ignore a tsteful watch?

I think Orient has a much better lineup, though they also have their share of uglies.

Which Orient models do you like especially?

Atm, I have my eyes on a Seiko 'Panda' 6138 Chronograph. The first automatic chrono the world has seen, yet few people, including those at Seiko, seem to find that worth mentioning.

The Bambino and Symphony are great. I have the latter.

Also love the 50th Anniversary power reserve that I just got.

That Seiko looks awesome. How much do they go for?

 I definitely like the design, but the size is a bit beyond the pale, don't you think?

There's the fit compared to the wrist and the fit compared to full body.  I'm 6'0" 190lbs so even though I don't have huge wrists it still looks right.  I've made the mistake of buying a watch just on wrist fit before...  How it looks to to scale to your whole person is much more important imo.  It's also sticking out away from the wrist atm due to stiff leather straps.  40-44mm is my sweet spot in watches.

 

One of the other reasons I wanted a touch larger is it lends itself to the sporty aspect of the watch making it more versatile.  Black dress dial that I can pair with any suit, brown strap with stitching and slightly larger size for jean pairings.  FYI if they'd made this in a 42 I would have bought it in that size as that's my perfect fitting.  

 

Thanks for the comment!

There's also the fact that camera lens distortion will make a watch seem bigger than it actually is; I notice this effect every time I take a wrist pic.
