It's a casual watch, and as such, the size is less important. That's my story. :D
Will you pass on your super deal that you will no doubt get to me when it is in SC? ;). :D

Good man!

Went and tried the Terra Nova but it was just too small when I looked at it compared to my S2000. :(

The 43mm case is fine on the others, but just does not look as good on the dive case.

Did you have chance to try on the z blue and play about with the light on the face? If you did that should do it!

I did, and I am convinced. I definitely plan to buy a z blue in the future, but not quite yet... :D

So here I was fantasizing what I could buy 'after' all three of my watches sell.
One thing led to another, and I realized I am becoming boringboringboringboringboringboringboringboringboringboring.
For the first time ever, I was searching '1989 speedmaster' today.

Are you saying speedy's are boring, or you're moving from boring into speedys? Cause it sure sounds like you slagged about 50% of the folks here. :lol:
Rolex Explorer II | Tudor BBR | Tudor North Flag | Omega Seamaster Pro 300M | Speedmaster 3513.30 | TAG Kirium F1 | Chr.Ward C9 GMT | C10 Mk1 | C65 LE | Oris Player's 7410 |
WR: 7.25"

Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.

As a speedy owner I wouldn't say that. Choosing a speedy basically involves no imagination what so ever. Its one of those watches.

Sure like a Rolex sub but to quote Ron Weasley: 'They're bloody brilliant!'.

I kind of disagree with boring, predictable yes. Like ordering a cold pint on a hot day, or saying yes to taking a Swedish model on a date...
