yeah, I could be tempted on that one at 38-40.

Oversized sport watches are one thing, but oversized dress watches just look goofy. Like the design and dial on this piece, would be great in 38 or 40mm.

^^^ yes just like the Seiko that Alain has posted. :Thumbsup:
Slim enough to fit under a dress sleeve or perhaps a french cuff if you're so inclined.
40mm is the perfect watch diameter imo for dress for people with 7-8" wrists.

So if you can get a similar dial for $50, where does the value come in for the extra $4000?

Things that make you go hmmmm
Yeah, the dials may look similar, but it's not even close. GS has some of the best finish of any watch I've ever owned. You'll know where the extra money went.

Oh no doubt the Seiko GS is light years ahead in quality. I'm not trying to disparage any watches, I just wonder about the pricing. The same could be said for many up level watches.
