My poor mans watch that I wear day by day...
Self Bday gift
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
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 . After 9 years, no problems and running well.
Here is another (successful this time) attempt at posting pictures of my watches:
Tissot Limited edition MotoGP:
...and Tag Heuer F1 edition:
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.
