Don’t know him, but have you actually tried on a 39.5mm PO before? I️ thought I️ was going to love it and was ready to buy, but they wear really awkward IMO. Not at all how I️ expected.

And yes, I am aware this is a slightly smaller one better suited to the wrist girth challenged like myself!

Hmm maybe I should go see one, but probably can’t in San Diego.

Everyone hates that size. By all accounts it sucks.

Why wouldn't you be able to find one in SD? It's not exactly a hard to find watch.

I really think this is one that needs to be tried on. I thought it was going to wear like a SD based on specs, but it was just all wrong to me on my 6.5" wrist. Kinda like a stack of quarters. And 38-40mm is my sweet spot. YMMV, of course.

Agreed. I didn't like it in person at all.

+1, I've got a 6.5" wrist, and the 43mm version wears just fine (short L2L to thank for that), while having much better proportions.

I’m scared to know what kind of lube he uses for the movements.

There is a “members only” portion of his website. That’s where the ToxicTOYS are listed. Ben told me about it, but I don’t have the clearance to see them myself.

terry has a very different definition of the term "beard oil."
