I was admiring them much, and wishing that they were just a tad larger in diameter.
Just showing. the Rose Gold 2000 at 34mm is perfect for me. I would have thought this steel cased, white-dialed one, at 36mm, would be right up your alley.

The Pythagore, without the center seconds hand "complication" is also 34mm

The white one might work really well. It is beautifully proportioned.

Watch size is a weird thing. I had thought my sweet spot was 37-38mm, as I have a large wrist but don't much care for hubcap-style watches. However, I recently saw a vintage (quartz-powered) IWC chronograph that was the perfect fit at 36-- and much to my surprise found that the Breitling Transocean is nowhere near too large at 42mm.

This is nice. The style reminds me of vintage Seamasters.

Very nice. Such simplicity is rarely seen these days.

Aren't they all hand wound? I always associate that crown with a hand wound movement.

Can totally recommend Hughes. He's done about 10 straps and several leather goods large and small for me to date. I think he is the best leather artisan in Singapore and world-class.

I have never seen that one before, but I agree that it is quite nice. Details? Links? Is it an ultra-thin?

Gents, would like to hear your thoughts on the your favorite of the following 5 watches:

- Blancpain Fifty Fathoms



- Panerai 233



- IWC Portuguese (5001-09, black dial)



- IWC Big Pilot (5009, not 5002/5004)



- AP Royal Oak (15400, black)



Putting aside considerations of price or versatility, which is the most beautiful? (Am leaning a couple ways, but interested in hearing views of SF)

It changes weekly. This week...

+1 on the 7day Portugese.

Also:

- JLC Deep Sea
- Vintage Flieger
- Patek Aquanaut
- IWC Mark XV or 3717

Not bad, but a bit loud

- IWC Big Pilot (5009, not 5002/5004)

would be great except for the idiotic power reserve dial on the front

- AP Royal Oak (15400, black)

I like this, but I would prefer the dark blue dial on this.
