I wore a 34mm Air-King for twenty years. It wore fine.
My point. We’ve just forgotten the old ways

I'm generally progressive. Just because we always did something some way, or because something is "good enough", doesn't mean I think we should keep doing it.

Granted, when I first put on a 40mm dive watch, I don't think I ever wore the Air-King again.
I’ve had a differing experience. Wore 38mm divers exclusively and to intended purpose for years in my 20s

Never once did I think, jeez , I wish this watch were bigger

In all fairness, my first diver was an orange Seiko 7548 when I was 19. I loved it, wore it for years and at 42mm never complained that it was too large

However, I moved on to a series of Tag Pro 1K thereafter, more upscale etc and was quite content with smaller size, didn’t miss the bulk of previous go to diver

I love the Japanese auctions myself for stuff like this.

And second hand shops can sometimes have unsorter boxes of these things to dig through

Lordmatics are nice. The vanac type cases haven’t grown on me yet but there is always tomorrow:

And being Japanese watches most of them are still running fine. When the cockroaches take over they are going to be wearing old Japanese watches, those are going ti survive too
