This just happened. Damn sexy! Was worried this was going to be a tad big but I've had the Maranez Bangla Brass 47 and THAT was massive. This case design and short 50mm L2L length sits nicely on my 6.5" wrist. For those who are small wristed like myself, it wears really well. If you like a big chunky tool, THIS IS IT hands down. HEAVY but I like it. Sizing the bracelet was a bit of a PITA but well worth the hassle. This case design works so well I may just pick up the 42mm version. Pics didnt post but the links are below:

Big congrats on that beauty ! You can't beat the bang for the buck we get with the A1's ! I'd love my next to be blue with that orange hand. Such a killer piece with a killer bracelet too. Nuclear lume on that one.

Luis, I noticed you're a big fan of the A1. I'm sold on this case design, Armida hit it big. Such a looker especially with the orange minute. Thank you all for your compliments.

Just looks so awesome Fog, and really doesn't seem that big at all. The design is definitely impressive, but it also combines a classic, vintage dive vibe too which is so neat ! :smile-thumb: So on the one hand, you get something dynamic, and new, but also a design that pays tribute to the past. That is such a fantastic combination ! :) Really hope you enjoy this one. A huge congratulations to you on it !

6 1/2 inch wrist here also and I have a 42mm A-1 brass. Fits great with the 46mm lug to lug.

Isofrane type strap is ok but Ive often wondered if a brass bracelet would be too much. Id love to have one.

Switched out the bracelet with a custom sized 24mm Chocolate Oil Tanned Waterproof Strap. Strap is supple and approximately 3.5mm-4mm thick. Slightly tight fit due to the A1 short lug design coming off the case and is right up against the case. Strap is from Anthony Rocco originally made for my Magrette MPP Blue. Saving up for a Grey Nubuck from SNPR.
