    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:slayer:

    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 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.

    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.
