I think all sizes apply here. Realize though, no opinion here is wrong, it's your right to express your opinion, and thankfully you have. If we did'nt have many points of view, there is no discussion, and there is no debating, to really think about, what, has actually revolutionized the watch industry. Invicta imo, went boldly where no one would go, "larger." I vividly remember Jim S showing the Russian Diver for the first time and showing a 40mm Pro-Diver next to it, wow that was an eye full at that moment, and a challenge to buy it and pop it on the wrist and gasp. Now it's commonplace, and 40mm seem small, but it's a visual perspective now, and the game has changed. I do agree many would not go back to 40mm and others would not want larger, it's a demographic attitude by person, and individual taste. I did have an interesting comment by a 20 year old gal who was at my watch maker's as I got a battery for my yellow RD. She gasped at it, and said, "man that is huge, what for?" She asked to try it on, and I said, "Think of it as a bangle bracelet that tells time." She instanly wanted it, and said, "this is also great for older people, no glasses needed." Another lady said, " I like traditional size watches," albeit a bit curious. I think it's like any market, you need to service each and every customer's want's and desires or they look elsewhere, and once the manufacturer disappoints, that customer will either vacate your product mix and never return, or wait for what sings to them, as it presents itself for emanination. I think each person listens for the song of the personal grail, there are a lot of 40mm Rollies still going out the door and for Invicta as well, the 40mm Pro-Diver gave the blood to Invicta to spread its wings and fly. Your point is well taken and valuable as an attitude of a customer that falls into a product segment. People may sound like they are complaining but they are expressing their needs and desires and peeves as well, about a certain product or product mix. Thankfully it sounds like you're happy with larger timepieces, so they made both you and me happy as well.

Stop complaining about watches being too large!
