I just checked one of these out in person. Underwhelming, should be no larger than 40 also but just my opinion. It's modeled after a vintage watch that was a 32, so 38 would make it pretty much on target for the modern world, it would be smallish as watches go but a size most any man can wear and look good.
I had assumed that the crowns would all be screw down, I was wrong. The 2 crowns at 2 and 4 turn very easiliy, I would think they would move quite a bit, esp considering the size and the fact that when you bend your wrist, you may brush against the crowns...I wear a 7 1/2" and have a largish wrist and it definitely touched the crowns when I bent my wrist.
Nice that the new 82xx series movements hack, but it's still and 82xx series, and they are loud even with this solid caseback, although it's quieter than many I've had, but you can still feel that perpetually spinning rotor in your wrist when it's really humming.
I was always excited by this one but I guess I will resort to trying to find an Accuswiss version, at least then you can somewhat justify the expense given you're getting a Swiss movement of a much higher quality.
Not impressed overall, I would buy it in the 250 range, maybe.
