I like the ingenuity of the methodology to indicate different time zones a lot. I like the dial a lot as well. I like that 5hey managed to keep it reasonably accessible (in steel) In short I like virtually everything about this watch except for one thing:... 

Totally agree with you.

A great watch but too large of the wrist. The movement dimensions alone are 39.2 x 8.0mm! So any attempt to make the watch smaller would most likely require a redesign of the movement. Given the complexity of the movement, the effort involved and the smal... 

I don’t see that happening either

Which is a pity coz I belief that they would sell many more if only it was 2 mm smaller and 1 mm less high

Pity indeed for exactly this reason.

I wonder if a considerable part of the complication and the associated space requirements are due to the display of time zone names. A nice detail and maybe part of a perceived "complete once and forever solution", but in the end I do not see the real lif...

If the movement is 38 mm theoretically a 42 mm case should work. Perhaps they designed it during the last days when the appetite for smaller cases was still absent.

If I’m not mistaken, it was first introduced in gold about 3-4 years ago. Meaning it must have been designed I would estimate 2 years earlier so the final decision on size is probably 18 months before introduction. Let’s say 4.5 - 5.5 years ago. I’m not s...
