I think the lug width is more noticeable with the bracelet fitted. Only my taste but I far prefer leather straps on certain style of watches.
I think I’ve decided that if I buy one of these it will be a manual not automatic. I like the idea of a manual wind, and with this particular model, I definitely prefer the aesthetics of the manual too.
I’d like a diver style watch but an understated one. Another reason why this model appeals. I’m struggling to think of others in the same price bracket that offer similar quality and styling
