Looks too big on the wrist. Imho.

I agree on brand.

For mechanical watches - Seiko. (But I'll go with Seiko 5 Automatic SNKL45)

For digital ones - Casio.

Looks too big on the wrist. Imho.

The Seiko 5 sports has a 42mm case with only 46mm lug to lug. It suits small wrists easily and even 6 inch wrists can easily wear one.

It looks fine on his wrists, probably the camera angle making it look big.

It may well be the camera angle. I am new to looking at watches seriously anyway.

That is a nice SKX homage. I have one myself.
