That Daytona is a very nice watch and worth the repost!

Any pics of smaller watches, like with an overall diameter closer to 35mm? Big watches look ridiculous on me as I'm very lean.

Here's a crappy cell phone shot of my Tank Francaise.

I think it's 28 X 34 or thereabouts, definitely a "dress" size rather than sport.





I really like it, and especially respect the design heritage of it, but at the same time am seriously considering a flip towards an early model Roadster.

I probably should put the tank on a strap for awhile and maybe it would see more wrist time that way.

Do you guys like the Tank Francais or Tank Americaine better?

Well, if money were no object.....I would probably go with this:

Cartier Tank Americaine Tourbillon Volant





Can you tell this one is not my pic? LOL.

I like Cartier's classic shapes but that watch, while striking, kind of reminds me of what Zenith was doing a couple of years ago with those open heart watches.

i like the square santos dumont and pasha diver from the newer cartier lineup.. ralph lauren ads seem to have a lot of vintage cartiers in their ads. they look very small on the wrist. covered up usually by heavy tweed sportcoats. i quite liked that look.

youre actually really lucky, a vintage oyster like singular's or omega seamaster are some of the loveliest watches out there, and a total bargain.

Define "bargain." My last big watch purchase was a $15 Casio.

The Rolex Datejust watches measure 36mm.

The midsize Rolex Seamasters also measure 36mm.

Seconded. This big watch phase makes the wearer look either insecure, nearsighted or both.
