Big and brash,in your face. Has a dial like the ball Night Train, only on steroids. Strangely I quite like the look, quite sporty and macho, the Dodecagon sided bezel makes it look a little the Junghans Meister Pilot watch which I would like to afford one day. If only it was 42 or 43mm I would have a go, but these fitted curved in leather straps do make watches wear a little larger. Good price for a quality automatic also. Wish my wrists were larger.

I agree that liking the look is strange. I usually feel rotating bezels make a watch look overlarge and clunky. I don't like proportions of watches with markers on a rotating bezel; the dial seems small compared to the rest of the watch and case, markings on the bezel distract from the dial indices, I'm not a diver or a pilot and wouldn't really use bezel functions. Perhaps the larger overall size of 46 mm on the Vostok means the dial is still sizable even with the extra space of the bezel. As for the size, I also have a relatively small wrist, but the curved strap may work well for you. I have a Xeric that is also 46 mm, but the straps mount under the case and are aimed "down", so they immediately match the curve of your wrist. I bet these curved in straps would work similarly. I have not heard of this brand before. I will need to do more research on their quality and durability. Once again, a strangely attractive design.

I have an abjectly tiny wrist - no watch goes past the first or second hole in a leather band - and I have the bronze case version of this. It wears a lot smaller than its absurd size actually indicates. It still LOOKS big, but compared to something like an invicta grand diver, it feels much more normal on the wrist.

I know how you feel, I used to go to 3rd or 4th hole, depending on strap. So I could, and did wear some trendy 47 to 50mm diameter watches; but now I am at the second hole mainly after losing 16kgs. this year(if it wasn't for the pandemic it would have been 21kgs) so not only has my wrist got smaller but so have I. I just got a 43mm Breuer from Panzera , just fits,even with the 15.3 mm thickness, although 2mil of that is domed sapphire. So now I mainly look at 42mm or less. I do like everything about this watch including the price, maybe I could put it on a hot wash!!
