nytime commented on Week on the Wrist - A Santos de Cartier Medium in Paris

Thank you for sharing the amazing story and pictures. Cartier is my favourite watch brand and Paris has a special place in my heart. It's a shame so many bullies decided that your story was something they'd tried to step over to make themselves feel superior back over at the other place.

I really admire your patience, amost a year and a half of your Santos just within arms reach!聽

nytime commented on The Valjoux wobble.

H-21, based on Valjoux 7750, wobbles like a bobble head.

nytime commented on Are 36 millimeter too small for a watch?

The Casio's 38.8 x 29.8mm, so the surface area's around 1156mm2. 36mm watch would be around 1017mm2. There are other dimensions to be considered of course but I feel like my Casio wears perfectly for a dress watch.


The Cartier's 40mm, and in terms of fit it's great. I do feel that it's a bit large in terms of it supposing to be a dressy watch.聽


The Citizen is 45mm, but it wears well due to its relatively short lug-to-lug. It's also rather busy, so when I look at it I don't feel that it's large.


The Hamilton's 42mm but I feel that it looks huge. By no means a small watch of course, but the thin bezel with a dial that's on the cleaner side makes me think that the watch is huge every time.

What I'm trying to say is I think it's not always easy to determine if a watch is big or not just by the numbers. It really depends on whether the watch is dressy vs. sporty, clean vs. busy, etc.

Oh but regardless of everything said above, yes, Invictas are big.
