    I tried to find a link to the article but it doesn't seem to exist online. The watches they featured were something like this:

    I don't know why but I'm curious about these watches :embar: Would make a great conversation piece I'd think.

    I found a second watch I really liked, maybe will take this instead of the Cartier Santos.

    IWC Da Vinci Automatic Brown Dial Croco Strap,

    I found this (actually similar to)1902 Elgin pocket watch today in an antique shop. The inside and face was absolutely pristine. The outside case work was not quite as ornate but similar in style. Obviously this is way outside what we usually post and I haven't worn one in years, but it was just a beautiful piece and it really captivated me. Still working over 100 years later... just though it was cool and some may be interested.

    Yeah I know, damn.. It's maybe better to try them out and see which one that fits my arm. Since i'm a slim-fit guy [​IMG]
    I really like AP and Hublot watches but they get so big on my arm... hate them now [​IMG] There is one smaller model then Santos 100 XL, right?

    Hublot has 38mm watches and AP RO is 39mm, which is considered small by today's standards.

    The Santos XL is 43 and the Da Vinci is 46mm, so it could be your eye is cheating you, do to the bulkiness of the AP and Hublot design.
