By the same logic, Frilly has a smaller wrist and is not tall, but his monster musculature lets him wear that fat DSSD just fine, I think.

It all comes back to the same thing: there is no substitute for seeing a watch on your own wrist, with the clothes you actually intend to wear, from different angles and distances.

I think the 572 might be my sweet spot - a sturdy 45mm against a modest thickness. But I'd like to try it.

the 572 is excellent



on the other hand, the 573 is amazing



I'm a big fan of the micro-rotor, especially finished in gold. But the pricepoint is too high. Would rather purchase other watches in that price range.

Most surely, cf. the @Cleav "dress Radiomir" evidence.

If you have a 572, a 573 on the other hand is just silly :rimshot:

But really, you're right that the 573 is just too much money. I don't wear gold anyway, though I kind of wish the rotor in the 572 was gold too for the sexy secret contrast.

Technically the one on the left is a calculator.  Please put it away!

What is happening with your sleeve there?  Where is your shirt?  Why is your suit sleeve so long?  This is Styleforum doncha know.  

 

P.S.  Nice watch.

Cleav - is that the 183? If so that's the one that made me pause on the 512. I really like this one as my first Rad.

Sure is Tricks, though specifically it's the 183 G, made for just one year. The other 183 is the J which they tell me is less collectible.... Whatever, I have a slim wrist and it works well for me biggrin.gif

Never knew the Rolex Explorer II was considered a "humble" watch! :inlove:

 

Just kidding - still, one man's "humble" watch could well be another man's "grail"!

All that decoration on the movement appeals to some more than the plain ones. I love it.

Dropped off my Panerai for service at shreve and then started trying on pieces including the one pictured below. My favorite was the rose gold radiomir in the 40mm. Unfortunately I always feel like in a kid in a candy store and forgot to ask what model it was.

Also happened to try on the Pepsi GMT and the classic sub with the date. As much as I liked the Pepsi there was something just so classic and timeless about the plain black sub. For my wedding present the wife is buying me a watch and Ive wanted a sub for a long time just figuring it's timeless and iconic and would last forever. Open to suggestions as well. Current rotation include the PAM 111 and the Longines master chrono.
