    Yeah, what they really need is a watch that noone is buying...
    Forgive me, I was a little unclear in my post:

    What I want Rolex to do = what Rolex needs to do.

    Better now? [​IMG]

    I would certainly buy an OysterQuartz like Kapp's. Second best thing is that Kapp reposts it here constantly, enticing me always [​IMG]

    You're very welcome. Yours was a good question on a somewhat confusing topic so I figured I might as well try to answer in a way that might benefit everyone. Of course in a thread that is over 500 pages long, answers will fade away quickly.... But, thanks again.
    .. yes but it will live my heart forever [​IMG] .. .. . [​IMG] free beer for you if you're ever in Sydney [​IMG]
    Well, you have a 7.5" wrist. A 44mm case on a 7.5" wrist can look fine. As you said, the only way to know is to try on the wrist and see if you like it. But generally speaking I'd say that you would be OK with a 44mm. <snip> Bear in mind though that dial design, bezel size, case design/materials, etc. all have a major impact on perception...therefore not all watches of the same size will look the same. Not even close.
    Actually that's one thing I was surprised with, that at those dimensions this particular case has a chance to be hideously big.. yet, while being certainly no smaller than the Speedy I tried on (which I believe is measured 44mm if I'm not mistaken), it's not as chunky as it could be and remains attractive in terms of profile. It felt fine to me so with your re-assurance I think I'll go ahead and most likely order it as my first mechanical in a few days [​IMG] ...It was either that or a Seiko Diver SKX007K (movement 7s26) which I was hoping to put on non-English language day wheel on (Polish to be specific)... but figured I may have trouble finding the wheel and the GMT function has romantic value for me [​IMG] Below is my wrist with some Omegas for reference.. re: size.. think it should be ok, though the Speedy profile is -wonderful- for their diameter imo (and definitely/obviously slimmer height wise).
    <snip> Moonphase (3576.50.00). Probably my favourite watch at the moment.. [​IMG] Speedy Date (3210.50.00). [​IMG]
