Sharp as a tack. Love the size for sure. Shoot...I'm not in the market, but...
I’m not in the market either, but waiting for a nice price to come up is right up my alley. I can see this in my home when the price is right.

So let's see how many lords purchase this watch................ and not put it up for sale.
So what if they do flip it?

You buy a piece of clothing from an online shop, if you don't like it, you sure as hell don't keep wearing it.

20% off code from UK AD, "BOX20" and no VAT brings them down to a fair price. Xmas watch money sent that way.

It’s really good that they’ve released a smaller version. The 43mm one is good - decent looks, and ISO-compliant. Alas, I find the titanium version the only one that’s actually wearable. The case back design just doesn’t work well in the steel version, and the 43mm feels awfully top-heavy.

Frankly, though, in every version, the 43mm has some flaw. The MSRP for the titanium version is way too high. There’s no hardening treatment or coating to the case, and the watch is a scratch magnet.
The steel is, as said before, just heavy as fuck. The lighter rubber strap-equipped version is no good, because it is equipped with the SG’s proprietary Moron-Band, also used in the Longines VHP and Hydroconquest. It can be adjusted only once, by cutting away segments of the rubber by the clasp.
Oh, and the lugs are 21mm, in order to make your life miserable, should you find the bracelet too heavy, and the rubber - too much of a crock of shit.
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.

I don't mind a 21mm lug width as I prefer a custom strap for the length alone, not to mention all the options.

Hope like hell it isn't too heavy. We shall see.

I remain optimistic based on my handful of Certinas have owned.
