Yeah, they're way too big for me as well. At one point I had three - the 7265, which I found new on Amazon for $165, and two Sunday Run purchases: the 1957 and the newer style 0813, both of which I sold on Ebay shortly after for a small profit. I had a bad buyer with the 1957 and eventually got the watch back and a $75 refund. As the watch was not damaged in the way the buyer claimed, I ended up selling it on Ebay for $105. I was a bit disappointed in the 0813 as the green dial was less rich foresty looking than the Amazon picture, plus I didn't like how the newer style seemed to tower above the wrist, mainly due to the too-thick bezel.

Anyhow, I loved (and still love) the look of the 7265 but felt that was way too heavy and look too massive on my wrist, especially with the lugs and metal bracelet. I ended up trading the metal bracelet for a polyurethane one, but that didn't look any better because the connection of the strap was metal as well. I sold that strap and then put my Sea Spider bracelet on the Leviathan - and it looks great and feels much lighter. My Sea Spider was probably my most frequently worn watch of 2011, "Year One of Invicta Obsession," so it was put in retirement.

While I don't wear the Leviathan I also don't plan on selling it, both because I no longer have the original strap and I want to hold onto one Leviathan - the design is just too cool and fun to look at. If I were you I'd keep one of them as part of your collection, but that's just the way I do things.

In fact, I just put it on as I was writing this and it looks and feels great. Still too big for everyday use, but with the Sea Spider bracelet - one of my favorite Invicta straps - it looks more along the lines of the Specialty Reserves in terms of size.
