I suppose that I shouldn't be too concerned, since she already knows; and I am way past shopping around: so the bigger the better since now it will be easier to read.

Well I can't speak for others but my watch looks verry verry small on my wrist. At least the wife dosen't complain though.

Jerry, looking at some other watches, high-end and cheapies, this watch is actually on the small side...if what your wife says is true, most rich guys have small dicks, because most $20k-up watches are the size of your gas cap! lol! They look like desk clocks with wrist bands.....
This watch is a much more reasonable size, and, as the craftsman you are, you will appreciate the machining that went into making it. I don't wear mine much, but I look at it every day because its such nice work.
Besides, as a machinist, you can make em any size dick they need, from billet.....the watch has nothing to do with it... You just whip out your dial calipers and say "Bend over, honey, lets see what size you really need"....hehe!

I’ve worn my watch every day since I got it. I like the metal bracelet much better than the leather strap.

Here’s a stupid question: Is it OK to just “push click” the clasp closed or should the “open buttons” be used when closing?

I push them to close it. It will help the clasp in the long run.

Huh, Porsche/TAG just released a limited edition watch--the Monaco55--which is retailing for $5,500 (only 55 available). The band looks somewhat familiar to me...

I actually like that band a bit better, but $5500...ummm...I think I am going to pass on that. You can even buy a decent running 928 for that kind of money! Jeez! That said it is a good looking watch!

IMHO and as a watch collector, NO Tag is worth paying that much; unless of course you buy one of these timing belt non-production prototype V4 Monacos: http://www.tagheuer.com/the-collecti...o-v4/index.lbl

May I also add that at just under $800, the 928 watch is still a steal for something that's so unique and custom.

It's too bad that there are some on this forum who have taken that exact same word literally and have yet to pay for their watch. I won't mention names but you do know who you are.

^^^^^^^
Right on Andy... this was a labor of love and I could not be happier with the way it came out! If RKD and Chris had not come on board I am sure this project would have ended up producing a hokey watch or nothing at all as happened with the last run at it so many years ago! It is amazing how long it all actually took, but the final product was worth the wait!

This is sad. Very disappointing
