Horological Meandering: On the wrist it seemed okay. It wears relatively flat at 9.35mm and I feel comfortable wearing watches up to 42mm. Though I prefer 38mm for this type of dress watch.

One nice thing is that the strap is surprisingly higher quality than the oem straps that Longines typically uses in this price range.

Horological Meandering: I would agree on the similarity. Although that tends to be the norm among watch brands, including many of the top houses. But given Longines' long history of watchmaking and its extensive catalog, Naoya Hida may be not be entirely without sin.

In fact I just read a Hodinkee article on this watch that makes reference to a vintage Longines pocket watch with a similarly engraved dial. So perhaps in this case the old saying is true that "There's nothing new under the sun."
