How about this as an alternative to that Citizen?

I've had a half dozen Deep Blue models over the last 5 years. They lack refinement.

OK, how about a Helson Sharkmaster 1000? Don't mind me, i'm just throwing out suggestions as they come to me.

I'm feeling a Blumo. Maybe put an Endmill bracelet on it.

The subject of wrist feel is one that is often overlooked because of the focus on the watch itself rather than the interaction with the wearer's wrist. Not all wrists come in the same size and shape and how they interact with the geometry of the watch can make for an uncomfortable situation no matter what strap the wearer uses.

I wear my watches about two inches up the arm from the wrist joint. In photos I've noticed many WISes wearing their watches directly over the joint and I can't imagine how that can be comfortable. I tried it myself and it drove me crazy within minutes. But to each his or her own. Another thing to consider is the weight of a watch and how it balances with the weight of the strap. A heavy watch with a light strap will feel unnaturally top heavy. Correspondingly, some stainless steel straps are so heavy that it makes it feel like you're carrying an ankle weight on your arm all day.

I've come to the conclusion that I dislike all metal bands and wear my watches on either NATO, leather, or resin (G-Shock) straps. It's the overall weight that bugs me -- I prefer lightness and dislike the hair-pulling that some metal straps impart on my arm. I do however want to try a titanium watch and strap just to see if that might be a workable solution. I'll just add that to the acquisition list.
