| Tecsun PL-660 vs Sangean ATS-909X: For My Needs the Sangean Would be the One »
I recently put for sale my combat version of the Invicta Leviathan and the orange one. They are big, almost too big for my 7.5 inch wrist. When I weighed 30 pounds more, these watches fit me.
There's something about the blue version model 6646 though. Still, I should sell it. I can barely fit the long strap around my wrist.
Perhaps I should sell all of them and get my "fat man" watches behind me and start a new life.

Tecsun PL-660 vs Sangean ATS-909X
From the video notes:
The 909X wins on LW and MW, but on SW the Tecsun is much more sensitive. I still prefer the 909X though; it works better with a really long antenna, has a nicer sound and a gorgeous display. Plus, the FM is very good on the Sangean.

That's a lovely blue - I can see why you're torn. I own only one Leviathan (7265) because of the same reasons - it is just a huge watch and with the connecting part of the band in silver, looks too big for my wrist. I traded my metal bracelet for the one you have here, but found it looked just as big because of the metal connecting part. Then I decided to swap in a Sea Spider bracelet which, I think, looks really nice and it isn't so overwhelming because the connecting part is black plastic. I'll eventually put it up on my blog, probably in the chronology series.
Overall the Leviathan case is one of my favorites, right up there with the Specialty Reserves - I just wish they made a mid-size model, with a 46-48mm case.
