The light feeling is a good thing! In the midde of these Southern California summers, by the end of the day my wrist gets really agitated from a heavy steel bracelet. Higuchi was the guy who sold them, but they are since discontinued and he said very difficult to find. Im reasonably sure I could flip this down the road without losing any money.
That's cool. I live in a similar climate (Australia), but I still prefer a bit of weight to my divers watches, though I did enjoy the watch while I had it. To each their own
