Looks like you got it then. First impression - I like it! You need to do a thread with the story on that one.

Anyway, congrats! :thumbup:

But I just got it! Maybe in a couple of months... :-k

As a fellow skinny-wrister, how do you find the extra long lugs on the Club? Make the watch wear considerably larger?

Cheers! It's 47mm though, so if you are thinking of getting one make sure to consider that!

BTW, Awesome Solo!

Not considerably i wouldnt say, case size on the datum is right in the sweet spot though. i had an apostrophe earlier, i think there are flat wrists (my wrist looks hollow in the middle part lol) and round wrists and a watch might appear to look bigger on a rounder wrist as the lugs sit higher?
