Wonders of Watchdom

And, how to avoid the dreaded "wrist flop."

Sporting an extremely well-sculpted case in sapphire, with an 18kt white gold bezel, crown and lugs; this watch measures in at 60mm x 18.5mm. The 47mm AR-coated sapphire crystal crowns this timepiece while a sapphire adorns its back too. The watch is water resistant to 30 meters.

No size barriers for me to limit my choices. That is why I have so much of a variety from Android to Zelos. I broke down those mental barriers and stereotypes a long time ago.

Looks like Sly has been around longer. :hmm:


Sylvester Stallone? Bah...forget him. The big watch thing was started by these trend setting guys way before he was even born!

I just wore my Agat 192-Chs yesterday and today I'm wearing my Invicta Sea Hunter. I'm not afraid of larger sized watches. :up:

Sly Stallone Born: July 6, 1946 (age 73 years), Hell's Kitchen, New York, NY

VODOLAZ 191-ChS


Cyrillic notation: 191 ЧС
The original vintage Zlatoustovsky Diver


In the past almost every USSR Navy diver wore these famous military watches. In the 1950s and 1960s the Zlatoust factory produced 191-ЧС (ChS) watches for USSR navy divers. The watch is unique. It is one of the biggest wristwatches in the world, with a diameter of 60mm excluding crown and lugs, and it weighs around 250 grams. Production of the single block stainless steel case is a complicated process, but which produces an unbeatable product. In the early days radioactive material was even used in the luminous dial markers! Production of diving watches in the Zlatoust Watch Factory ceased in the early 1970s, and gradually the watches were withdrawn from professional use, but still the legend lived on. However, demand creates supply.

Well, I just bought two 50 mm Aragon watches so I guess that I still like larger sized watches and thus hard-core watch people will still hate me with every fiber of their being.

I'm perfectly OK with that! :lol:

I doubt anyone here really cares that you or anyone else likes large or small watches, but people saying it gives them some credence. I never even give it a second thought about that crap in all things in life.

I would like to think that watch fans wouldn't care what other people spend their own hard earned money on but I sure see a lot of hateful posts on the internet (like in the comments section of this Youtube video) pointed towards larger sized watches and those that like them. It doesn't influence me either as there will always be haters in every hobby fan base on Earth, watches included.

No argument with me and you're 100% correct about all popular forms of social media and YouTube, but that applies to every topic you can think of as you mentioned. I put blinders on to that kind of stuff because I have my own mind. Everyone has the right to voice their thoughts and opinions, but much of that stuff takes it to a whole other level. I try to never use the word hate, especially with watches or anything. The venom some people spew out on social media is off the charts when it comes to the word hate. The videos posted here are just to help create content and have respectful, thoughtful discussions like this back and forth.

This post and you in general is a big reason why I enjoy this place so much. You put more content on here for everyone to check out even if it's stuff you could give a rats ass about. I may not agree with every opinion, but I sure as hell love that you put all the vids and info out here for us to check out. Never know what may catch my eye until I see it. So keep on doing what you do as it is appreciated.
