20 years later...

Can you believe that this was Gents size 20 years ago? In person it looks really tiny, and I don't have a big wrist at all.

I do love this watch, which was my first "good" one. I "cannot" wear it anymore due to my perception of the size (weird but true), so I may give a try to the new model (from 2018), who knows?

I would love to read your comments and see some pictures of your Santos watches πŸ˜‰

For this day and age it may be perceived to be bitty small. But i would hang on to it because trend is going smaller again. Plus there will be a day that you will wear this and post a photo titled : β€œ10 years ago it was too small” Its a great piece

This is a very special watch to me, with a ton of sentimental value

So I definitely look forward to that comparison πŸ‘πŸ»

This one has a special "charm" that I've never felt with the later editions

The latest has improved there, I definitely want to check it out. I've never had any issues with the bracelet, it's extremely comfortable.

Sizes like this look IMHO so much better than these crazy fashionable large watches. I love the fact that one still can see some of the good looking bracelet, instead of a watch case the width of your wrist. Of course, I realize that I am one of the few h... 

You're making me think of readjusting the bracelet to give it a try πŸ€”

It's been in my wife's collection for a few years and, to be honest, it looks much better on her πŸ˜‰

I think it is a matter of getting used to it

This model has been for so many years a mens model, so let's fashion not dictate you that you can't wear it anymore. The fact that women started to wear mens watches, does not turn these pieces into ladies models. And women get away with anything they wea... 

I fully agree with you

I'm so confused when I look at it. Same watch and same wrist as 20 years ago, but totally different feelings. As you said, probably it's a matter of time on the wrist and I'll see it differently.

early 90's Rolex. So tiny, so, can I use the word, stupid looking, inappropriate on a man's wrist.. A Santos won't EVER look stupid. What a great design. The basic shape has been around for over a hundred years and it still looks fresh. Fabulous!
