Hey, you're preaching to the choir! There would only be 6mm between the end of the lug and the edge of my wrist.
But the news isn't the watch, it's the movement itself. Hamilton has taken the venerable Valjoux 7750 (chronograph movement) and completely reworked it to increase the power reserve from 42 to 60 hours. And it appears this H-21 (along with the H-31) is going to be Hamilton's default chrono movt.
