Close, the Revolver is 15mm.

Thanks for the correction jaw

Gone are the days where I try to wear a 52 x 20 watch and not look like a fool.

Its well balanced on rubber and the bracelet though. Lots of people with pussy wrists who can't handle big watches (like conjurer) still have no problem with the OS300.


We have the same size wrists, you bogan bastard!

Yep, it definitely wears well for such a hefty piece of steel. It's got a large, flat caseback and subtly curved lugs, which helps.

Johhny, my wrist is 7-7.25 inches. The OS300 wears well, no overhang, but it's as large as I'd go.

Well said. Size-wise, it's OK by me since there's a point to it--it's a real-life dive watch, not some Chinese parvenu shit slapped together by Invicter. Here're my humble impressions of it:

To be honest, I don't like the newest version that much. The Seiya-san price for the older one (like I have) is a very good price for new. And as you've noticed, jonny, these come up for sale second hand fairly often.
