What do the folks with small wrists think about this watch? I kinda really want one but this is a bit of a branch out from the thin small dress watches I normally spring for. Would love to get some thoughts.

I have 6.5" wrists and this has become my daily driver, more or less. I guess the strap choice might also affect the perceived size. I like this on either a thin leather nato (same one I normally wear the Alpinist with) or on a Worn&Wound nato.
The only other watch maker I've seen (apart from Laco mentioned in @ChristinaP's comment above) that makes smaller fliegers is Archimede - they have 36 mm and 39 mm cases, with a bronze case variant for 39 mm. Both have a display caseback, but with a flat sapphire crystal (I think). Also, way more expensive, but they have the Sellita's version of the ETA 2824-2 if I remember correctly. I forget the number.
Personally I love the crystal on the Maratac - it looks like a lens (actually being a double domed crystal it IS a convex lens) and it's beautiful! :D
