None of those two are 42mm (the Radiomir is 45, the Luminor is 44).

You're right about the Radiomir. Still, the point remains, the 47mm 1950 Luminor and 1940 Radiomir cases are much larger.

Upping from 45 - 47 would not change that look on Gregs wrist at all, from 44 - 47 on mine, hard to say. Would need to try it out.

Disagree. Two millimeters is a humongous jump. It's like a second off a 0-60 time.

In fact, if my high school geometry is still coherent, the bigger the watches compared, the more that extra two millimeters matters. The surface area added gets bigger and bigger. So, even though the percentage difference in surface area between 42mm and 44mm watch is greater than between a 45mm and 47mm watch, the absolute difference is greater in the case of the latter, all while your wrist size remains constant.

Did someone say MUT?  

 

My own MUT RDM in a lambskin jacket I had made on my honeymoon.  Admittedly unconventional territory for a dress watch, but I love it.

 

 

 

 

Happy "Black Friday" ;)

I think that a dress watch 'dresses down' much better than a sport/tool watch 'dresses up.'

Loved opening the box and putting it on for my first wearing.  Such an awesome feeling.  Congrats Moo!

Thanks guys. I thought I pulled off all of the stickers, but two more came off yesterday (crown guards) after almost 2 weeks of wearing... shog[1].gif
