Thanks - that is about what I was expecting.  I have a (vaguely) similar piece also housing an American-made pocket watch movemet (Hamilton cal. 917), and while I enjoy the watch very much, I do find it to be on the large side for a dressy / elegant piece.  I have no problem wearing sports watches up to 45mm in diameter, but for a dress watch, I have a decided preference for 40mm or less.  And that preference becomes more pronounced as the retail price increases.

 

That said, I have nothing but admiration and respect for what Roland has accomplished with this new caliber.  I'd be more likely to purchase it in a sporty flieger-type configuration.
