Bungle-ator, you Sir, are a man of exquisite taste. I have one and it is my most worn watch. The case is a scratch magnet though.

Targeted ads are now teasing me at every turn. I keep admiring, although safe in the knowledge I'd probably find the 43mm without pushers a tad too large!

My first thought was that it was too big at 46mm. But then it has no lugs so I'm guessing it wears like a 42mm?

I'm keeping my pennies for an Explorer I though, and however unlikely I'm hoping it'll be my last watch purchase.

Edit: it looks even better in your photo than it does in the stock sales pics.

It's 46 - 47mm lug tip to lug tip. The diameter is 42mm. As you say it wears more like the 42mm. It has that 70s sci-fi vibe that I like, is accurate and precise and the bracelet really completes the package. The Explorer is a classic but I like this. Your pennies would not go to waste if spent on either watch. Good luck choosing.

Good choice, once the watch fund allows of course

37mm Yacht Master. I reckon this would fit nicely in my collection.

All I'd have to do is sell my other Rolex, my Breitling and my Seamaster. And add a bit of money.
