What you all think of Zenith El Primero? For a 6.75 inch wrist, would a 38mm or 42mm watch look better?
Probably 38mm..
But depends on how flat your wrist is. Wrist size is not the key, wrist width is.

Iíve a 6.5Ē wrist. I prefer 38mm. Go try both. 42mm is more common. Remember to take wrist shots and post it here!

Though aged, it's a legendary movement that has withstood the test of time. Given your wrist size, I would think 42mm is better. Do try this out in person though.

Just to check with you bro, is the rubber strap easy to install?

I have an extreme aversion to touch any integrated rubber strap after my battle with the Gorilla Fastback..

I haven't tried installing the rubber strap haha, only took the black rubber out to give the kevlar strap a whirl, and I think I prefer it to the integrated rubber.

I'll probably try the blue rubber next very soon and let you know. I know how integrated rubber can be a bitch to install, the last frustrating experience being my recent Crafter Blue on the Black Bay.

Yeah, I guess it depends on how tight the fit is really, and the actual suppleness of the strap.

Let me know, thanks!

Hi friends, just to pick your brains on an observation I saw; on chronosg an omega speedy pro is around 2k from Japan but the price of a speedy is around 4-5k preowned in Singapore. Whatís the reason behind such a variation?
