How is the weight of the Molarity compare to, say, an Invicta SAS with bracelet? My old 5219 was the heaviest watch I've ever owned and just uncomfortable (the same as your 5218, or presumably your more recent silver SAS). How does the Morality compare to that?

You know, even my best watch - the OSD - feels a bit heavy and awkward compared to the more comfortable Revolvers, Black Monster, Citizen Signature, etc. I think its just a function of oversized watches.

The SAS feels the same weight as the Molarity. I believe my Leviathan on SS bracelet was my heaviest.

Wait a minute. Wait a cotton-pickin' minute: I see the forearms in the photos----the size of my calves. And you're complaining about the weight of a watch (that does indeed look like a 3K watch----not sure I'm buying 5K though). Anyway, the Rose Gold Invicta Ocean Reef you sold to me----is hefty too. I wore that one yesterday. But I think you notice the heft more when you take it off and hold it in your hand----that one is probably my heaviest watch. My Tauchmeisters are heavy, but with leather bands, not as heavy as the Invicta with a full metal bracelet.

Is the M Force your Elaine? You know, on Seinfeld----Jerry always seems to find some fault to nitpick at, with the beautiful women he meets and dates. Obnoxious laugh, wears the same outfit too often, doesn't like a funny voice he does, etc. Every time he meets a great girl----within a couple weeks, he notices something (or fabricates a problem) and breaks up with the girl. But all along, there is his ex, Elaine, spending the most time with him. There's no pressure of her being "the one" so he just enjoys her company. It occurred to me reading this post---that perhaps you go back to the M-Force when you get home----a comfort level with that watch, though I've never seen you proclaim that it's a "favorite" or the one you love!

An Elaine Watch - I love it. I suppose we could have watch roles for each of the main characters in Seinfeld.

Angelo

I'm sure with the less expensive watches I'm willing to try out----that you guys avoid----I have more Kramers than either of you!

Angelo, I like that analogy. It may be imperfect, but there's a core of truth there.

Ulysses

Perhaps you could buy a titanium watch band.

I find that with heavier watches I have to really tighten up the strap to prevent the watch from rotating around my wrist, which makes wearing the watch for any length of time pretty uncomfortable. For this reason, as a general rule, I prefer lighter watches, most of which are relatively thin as well.

jonnybardo

There's a balance for me, Gary. Too light (like titanium) and it feels like its not there. That's ultimately why I passed on the Citizen Orca, which I really wanted for a bit. But too heavy and, as you say, it needs to be tight to not flop around, and I for one like to wear my watches a bit loose - about so I can get two fingers in snugly between the bracelet and wrist.

Angelo, do you own any Newmans? Maybe that would be your odd Russian Diver you're getting rid of, Jeff.

Gary

There is also an automatic version of the Molarity Deep Diver, in three different hand/marker colors.

Jonny: I have to look in the big cigar box I keep my watches in, to see if I have any Newmans. Off the top of my head, probably not. What would that be? Big and menacing, with annoying quirks?

jonnybardo

Something like that, Angelo - menacing, but in a humorous way and, ultimately, not so threatening.
