or rather, how uncomfortable do you find it?
I'm surprised at all the love on here for GO. People gonna sheeple. Clear demonstration of the lack of originality on the boards - no flame
They have nicely finished movements, but they don't feel like a luxury watch. GS IMO is a superior watch in terms of feel, finish and overall refinement.
Pardon my ignorance but what does "GO", "GS" and "sheeple" stand for?
Grand Seiko is superior to Glashuette Original ? Yes, sure, you won't lack originality with statements like this.
Also, aren't you the one who posted a GP up in this thread - not exactly top of the food chain...
i think its modern sized.. 21st century
I am afraid I need an interpreter for the reply as well
I believe GP is Girard Perregaux.
Beautitful IWC...I love the chrono but find them too large for my 7.25 wrist with my sweetspot being between 36-42mm. I prefer the smaller vintage IWC Portugieser Automatic Ref. 3531.
I find it as comfortable as any other watch. I also wear 47mm Rads at times too.
For those that need a translation:
Sheeple = portmanteau of sheep and people
GO = Glashutte Original
GS = Grand Seiko
For those that want an opinion... although GS makes a great watch the finishing on the movement and dials of a GO is still better.
My daily (well, it swaps in and out with a TAG Kirium)
I had a PAM Rad Black Seal Automatic 45mm that I had to sell because the crown would dig into my hand. I'm considering the Luminor GMT 40mm but I'm not in any hurry to drop the cash.
Sounds like a good idea -- I feel that Luminors wear larger than the Radiomirs. I've experience the crown digging into my wrist from time to time but only occasionally.
FWIW, my IWC is 42mm in diameter.
I would guess the Luminor seems larger because of the crown guard.
I was thinking your IWC was 44mm, my bad!!
Luminors look and feel larger than Radiomirs but they also sit more comfortably on the wrist because of the curved lugs.
