Very nice - I'm glad you like it.

I own two all-black watches, the Tempest Viking and Seiko SKA425, both of which are very toolish, so I'm still left longing for a more Bondsian black watch (I'll have to get that Citizen I've long wanted someday).

The SNAB69 has a nice balance between toolish (or rather, I'd say sporty) and slick or Bondsian.

"Bondsian." Now there's a manly watch term.

And as a side benefit you'll have the pilot's slide rule at the ready, in case you need to do any calculations while you're out and about.

Here's an ABlogToWatch article on how to use a pilot's watch slide rule.

Thanks, Gary. For my treck to Whole Foods in Redondo Beach.

The whole "size" thing has me rattled. Does size matter? I still love my "mucho macho" Tauchmeister 52MM titans. I also love my Cardinal 47MM Panerai knock-off, which as Jeff would say, plays big. But I'm now finding myself drawn to the nostalgic, much smaller and thinner luxury watches from the 1950s-1980s era. After a few days wearing a classic Seiko dress watch (small size), my 41 MM Seiko Kinetic (by today's standards, not a large watch by any means) that I'm wearing today looks "too big." Don't get me wrong----I still like the big, impactful watches and the attention they get (mostly positive). But something is drawing me backwards in size---and not even to "medium" but to much smaller. It'll be interesting to see how things trend for most people in the next couple years.

I'm trending to nothing smaller than 43mm.

But never say never! You never know what the watch designers have in mind that might sway you to a sub 43MM size.
