Forgive me, I was a little unclear in my post:

What I want Rolex to do = what Rolex needs to do.

Better now?

Not even close.
Actually that's one thing I was surprised with, that at those dimensions this particular case has a chance to be hideously big.. yet, while being certainly no smaller than the Speedy I tried on (which I believe is measured 44mm if I'm not mistaken), it's not as chunky as it could be and remains attractive in terms of profile. It felt fine to me so with your re-assurance I think I'll go ahead and most likely order it as my first mechanical in a few days ...It was either that or a Seiko Diver SKX007K (movement 7s26) which I was hoping to put on non-English language day wheel on (Polish to be specific)... but figured I may have trouble finding the wheel and the GMT function has romantic value for me Below is my wrist with some Omegas for reference.. re: size.. think it should be ok, though the Speedy profile is -wonderful- for their diameter imo (and definitely/obviously slimmer height wise).
