    For me personally, it really depends how thick the watch is. I'm down to one watch atm. My Sea-Dweller is 40mm and just fits perfectly on my wrist. The Submariner is also a really comfortable watch as well. On a random note. I been itching for these two watches TT Blue Submariner and Breitling Navitimer. I honestly don't know why.

    I would keep the Blue Spark and sell everything for that Panerai :foo:. Well I had 4 watches, but now I'm down to one.

    Agreed. The tend is slowly dying. Anything larger than 42mm on my arm is really pushing it.

    I know what you mean, but I got in the habit of daily winding a RAD and it's really no pain - enjoyable, really. If your autos aren't on a winder then you have to shake them up anyway when you're not wearing them.

    That's a good present. I got the same, currently wearing it with a nato strap :).

    Cheers. I have already purchased a few nato straps and am keen to try them at some stage. For the time being, I am enjoying the bracelet, which is so much lighter and more comfortable than the bracelet of my old Planet Ocean, which had solid links. While I was previously keen to purchase a 5513 with domed plexiglass crystal and nicely patined dial, I don't find the 14060M too bling, despite the use of white gold; the lume is great and it probably better fits my lifestyle, in case I decide to go for a dive with it.
