I wonder what they call that color. If chickens had teeth, they would be that color...Right foghorn!

Chicken tooth yellow.

The specs say BEIGE. If I was king for a day, I would love to see a JazzMaster automatic with this dial color with a brown croco or gator strap.

44mm diameter! Honestly, I do not understand the trend towards larger and larger watches. One of my "must haves" is the 1966 Hamilton Aqua Date. If you are familiar with it you might see where the modern Navy Diver came from as the Aqua Date had the inner rotating bezel and two crowns. The diameter was 36mm.

If you have the wrist for it then these large watches can look really good but even skinny guys like me are wearing them and to me it just looks awkward. Do people here think the big watch trend will last or will men's watches eventually return to the sub 40mm size? This is something I've been wondering about for some time now. What can I say, I guess I am a true WIS!

IMO...Dial size has fluctuated over the years....I things will settle out for a while between 40 - 44. I do not foresee sub 40 in the near future.

42mm is the perfect size for me. As the mod of the Invicta forum for almost a year, I found that the dial size inflation of that brand was off the charts IMHO. I think it will all come back down to earth and the Hamilton collectors will be in good shape regarding the size of the watches we wear.

I have been divesting myself of most of the larger size Invicta's and am not buying any more of the gigunda watches. 40-44 is my comfort range. My two Hamilton's are on the small side and they are fine.

You're not kidding! I have an older Invicta diver that I wear when I'm doing chores and such. They literally have some wrist clocks now.

I'm fine with my smaller-sized watches (Hamilton, vintage Bulova, Omega Seamaster Diver (36mm)), but with more and more watch lines trending towards the large diameter it starts becoming difficult to find that next one. Then again I need another watch like I need a hole in the head! :biggrin:
