    So for those interested, I did end up ordering this watch. Given the reaction on this message board I figured I wouldn't take a huge loss if I needed to unload it because it didn't fit. I also tried on many other watches and came to realize that it wasn't so huge especially if it didn't weigh that much. Anyway, to make a long story short, it fits like a glove! In fact it fits better than my much smaller Tissot. In some ways I think the size actually helps because the back of my wrist is rather flat. Thanks to everyone for your help and for posting all the pics.

    Congrats PhotoGuy,

    Ok, here's a quick one before bed. I hope to get some more up this weekend. Enjoy!

    Also, I took some more accurate measurements of the dial:
    40.25mm without crown
    43.5mm with crown
    45mm top to bottom
    11.25mm thick

    Thanks, here's another. I want to reshoot this one when the hands are in a better position. Anyway, enjoy...

    Very nice shot! How's the watch holding to it's accuracy claim? My 8Fxx's accuracy has somewhat improved over the last few months. It has drifted -4s in the last 6months.

    Well I haven't had it that long, but according to the fancy GPS clock at my friend's lab (which is what I set it against originally), it's still holding the time as perfectly as my eyes can tell. We'll see how it does through the winter.

    I see a strong resemblance to my SUN007:

    Indeed. I looked at the SUN007, but it was a little outside my budget. I also thought the bezel was a little overstated, with a very "heavy" appearance (probably due to the screws on each corner). I do wish mine was an automatic though. I love the squared-off hands and spike-like second-hand on mine. I guess I'm a little bit of a detail person. :-)
