Yes, fat hands and markers definitely contribute to the chunkier look. The Daytona, on the other hand, looks quite a bit more svelte than their other current 40 mm watches, to the point where I could swear the case diameter was a bit smaller. (photos again for reference) Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler! So — being the consummate nerd that I am — I measured the actual size of the watch. Surprise! In reality, it's just over 38.5 mm at the bezel, which is the widest part of the case assembly excluding the crown guards and lugs. I'm really pleased about that since the classic look with modern features is what drew me to it in the first place; I think it's cool that it's closer to the original 37-ish mm models, and it makes stuffing a three-day power reserve in there all the more impressive. Any ideas as to why it's referred to as 40 mm by Rolex and everyone else, though?
