« Getting Rid of Watch Bloat by Becoming a Watch Ninja | Main | SWLing Post's Verdict on Updated Review of the Sangean ATS-405: Average »

August 10, 2015



I recall my disagreement with you selling this one the last time. It's a masculine watch with a lot of presence and interesting design details. I love the bowl-shaped case. It is rather massive though. It's not blingy as such, but how much of "bling" is about the size? I guess massive size is legitimised when it comes from a quality brand. It suits you, but very few guys could wear it.


Bowl shape (I actually call it kettle shape) is reminiscent of my Invicta Original Sea Hunter. Mine is on a rubber strap.



Is this one different from the other two you had?


Gary, it's the same watch Ulysses warned me not to sell. Ulysses was right. It's the perfect answer to the too blingish Breitling Super Avenger II. It's heavy watch. My guess is it's close to 300 grams.


That thing is frickin' enormous! I'm a big proponent of getting what makes you happy, so if you like it more power to you. The question to ponder is: when is big too big? As you state in your video, getting this Megalodon underneath the cuff of a long-sleeved shirt is going to be a challenge. If you live in a warm climate or are warm-natured, then this isn't much of a issue. But what about the winter months, when wearing a long sleeved shirt plus maybe a sweater or sweat shirt is required, and then a jacket on top of that? Will that relegate such a watch to warm-weather duty only? It can only be worn for just a few months in a year?

This gets back to the discussion earlier about the need for thinner watch in a collection. Not only one for formal occasions, but perhaps a casual thin watch as well for winter. Diver's watches in general don't do too well, nor do G-Shocks. Is there an approved automatic that we should seriously consider, like a Bambino or a Cocktail Time? Maybe a thinner Victorinox?
