Reminds me of the current Rado DiaMaster Thinline rather than of 1960s Hamilton Intra-Matic models. No less, I find it quite nice.

WHY do these brands keep making 42mm dress watches? FFS

Yeppers.
Especially with the "all dial" look.
Silly looking for a dress type watch.

My guess is that amongst the general public, this kind of watch is as much a daily wearer as it is a dress watch..as such, 42mm is in the ball park for a lot of wrists out there..

Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...

Had clients who whined about 42mm being...too small. But then again, the first thing to enter the shop were their bellies, then followed by the rest of the whiny hippopotamus.

The visual of this has me grinning. Definitely need all the grins I can find these days.
