    Seconded. This big watch phase makes the wearer look either insecure, nearsighted or both.
    +3. I hate seeing big oversized watches, dress watches in particular.

    +4!! 34mm is ideal for me. The largest watch I own is an Omega Railmaster "midsize" which is 36.2mm. My Air King is 34mm and so is my JLC Master Control Ultrathin.

    I am nearsighted but I am also 6'1" and weight 210 pounds. So anything smaller than 38/40mm looks like a child toy on me.

    Now if you are 5'6" and weight 150 pounds wet, you are right, 34mm looks better [​IMG]

    A custom build by my favourite watchmaker; no-name PVD case, Yao/MKII dial, 2892 movement and a strap from my company...

    jlc's latest ingenious creation. a repeater that is triggered by sliding back the mini blinds that cover the face, and its open for all to see. also [​IMG] about 250k if i remember correctly

    This is an amazing piece. I got to handle it for a bit a little while back at a Lange dinner here in NYC. The mechanism on their new tourbillon is amazing to watch. The 8-9-10 portion of the hours dial only pops out into place when the hours are between 6 and 12. Otherwise it is retracted to show the full tourbillon. [​IMG]
