Black and White

Today's watch is the 36mm version of the Marathon SAR behemoth and it replaced on my wrist the Seiko SGG731 that I wore yesterday.

Only then I thought that somehow I ended wearing the complete opposite of the SGG: White dial vs the charcoal dial of the SGG, steel vs titanium, automatic movement vs quartz and of course - the thickness because the SGG is one of the thinnest watch that I own while the MSAR...isn't.

However the MSAR is also one of the most wearable watch that I own and probably has the most legible dial in my collection.聽

Sometime it's not easy to slide it under a sleeve's cuff but it's really less of a problem than I thought, and anyway I'm not going to let something like work and dress code getting in the way of wearing my MSAR today.

And the understatement of the year is already there! 聽馃槀聽

It may be strange to hear but the MSAR is far from being the thickest watch that I own. Both my Vostok Amfibia are thicker and so is the ISL-68 and believe it or not - the Seiko SPB147.

Oh wow, is the Seiko thicker than the Marathon?! Very unexpected indeed!

I love that white dial.

I was also surprised because the SPB tries to hide its chunkiness while the MSAR seems eager to emphasis it, but measured from the center of the case back to the top of crystals, the MSAR is 13.9-14.0mm while the SPB147 is 14.0-14.1 mm.聽

I love that white dial.

The white dial of the MSAR is wonderful and works well to make it appear larger than its diminutive 36mm diameter.
