Yes I am shot you a PM.
Which Orient models do you like especially?
Atm, I have my eyes on a Seiko 'Panda' 6138 Chronograph. The first automatic chrono the world has seen, yet few people, including those at Seiko, seem to find that worth mentioning.

that panda chrono is one of my favorites from the line of seiko chronos.
C'mon that watch is cool! And you know it
two really nice sub homages from squale.
Cool, I like that top one! Are they using saphire crystals?
yes they are. honestly, it's a lot of quality for the price with these subs.
, Mmmmmm, Singer 911....
The Bambino and Symphony are great. I have the latter.
Also love the 50th Anniversary power reserve that I just got.
That Seiko looks awesome. How much do they go for?
Just arrived Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic 44mm:
I definitely like the design, but the size is a bit beyond the pale, don't you think?
There's the fit compared to the wrist and the fit compared to full body. I'm 6'0" 190lbs so even though I don't have huge wrists it still looks right. I've made the mistake of buying a watch just on wrist fit before... How it looks to to scale to your whole person is much more important imo. It's also sticking out away from the wrist atm due to stiff leather straps. 40-44mm is my sweet spot in watches.
One of the other reasons I wanted a touch larger is it lends itself to the sporty aspect of the watch making it more versatile. Black dress dial that I can pair with any suit, brown strap with stitching and slightly larger size for jean pairings. FYI if they'd made this in a 42 I would have bought it in that size as that's my perfect fitting.
Thanks for the comment!
Tom, do you really like those wall clocks on your wrist! C'mon buddy, you know thats 2big for you The watch is cool,but doesnt look right on thin wrist!
There's also the fact that camera lens distortion will make a watch seem bigger than it actually is; I notice this effect every time I take a wrist pic.
It seems that you can pay anything from about 100 USD (new aftermarket dial) to 500 USD (good condition, original dial and bracelet).
I thought about the Symphony as the first "real" watch for my brother... in which color do you have it?
