It really is pot luck. When I flew out mid February they had a decent selection of SS including a GMT II and explorer II but no subs. When I passed through again early March (probably a week before discotits) they had sold the GMT II and explorer II, and still had no sign of any subs.

just passed through today and they told me they can order in advance, have to give them 6 weeks..

Too small?

Looks okay to me, however I prefer the lugs to reach the sides of my wrist. It is all down to personal preference and I wouldn't personally say that's too small. Only you can decide though.

I went into one place and the flashy twat sales guy said he wouldn't sell it to me because it didn't fit! Reckoned it would be unprofessional to sell me a lady's watch. He seemed to pity me for not understanding "luxury timepieces". Fucking ridiculous. He was wearing a hideous Breitling.

It definitely is a smaller watch and I'm fine with that. It's only a problem if it's too small and looks wrong. I've thought about it too much and now can't be objective, hence asking you helpful lot.

The Date is just so clean. Wish they'd keep those exact proportions and dial but scale it up by 5-10%.

Looks way too small, almost like a ladies watch.

Looks good on. Not girly at all. Is it just the pic or are you wearing it quite high up your wrist? It's a personal thing of course, but I always think watches look better close to the hand.

Looks ok but a 39/40mm may look better. I would check some others out and compare.

Nato all the way, the speedy bracelet is so shit

RE the datejust, 100% need to size up it looks far too feminine
