    48mm IS comically large, especially if it's thick. Hockey puck watches look like crap on anybody, but much more so if you have a small wrist.

    If I don't consider it comically large, that's what matters. Believe me some people want way more ridiculous sized watch than my situation.

    @ryoneo - how do you like the Bambino? Does it feel cheap? I've been on the fence about getting it.

    It's affordable and the movement is good (Japanese Citizen, I think). The watch has a nice domed crystal and looks and feels elegant. Go for it, you get a lot of watch. So no, it does not feel cheap.

    If you don't like large watches that's ok, but don't piss on everyone that likes large watches :deadhorse:

    How big is your wrist? Stallone rocks a 50mm uboat but his wrists are like 8 inches around. Pulling off the look more or less requires that the lugs dont stuck out past your wrists

    Invicta Diver Lupah w/ Hadley Roma alligator straps. When I got these in 04, the watch came with the alligaor strap. The strap was worth more than the watch :lol:. After 9 years, no problems and running well.

    I have 8 inch wrists (more thick than wide) and own a 45mm face watch (exc crown). It's as big as I would like to go personally, but it's just my preference.

    Yes, this is significantly better. Seems like Orient is still the winner in budget CBD watches.
