    I have a Bergeon loupe that I've never used. Afraid.

    I'm fearless with my loupe but I am petrified of my wife's 10x mag makeup mirror.

    Yeah, I failed. I didn't try it on because it looked to dang thick and uninteresting to me. But now I've actually looked it up and I'm surprised its only 13.5mm thick, only 2mm thicker than the standard one.

    Louping watch dials and movements is one of the great pleasures of life.

    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.'
