There's something about many of the GO watches in their case lines - 'the austere German sensibilities', very hard to describe...which other brands like JLC, Blancpain, etc don't struggle with. At least that's my opinion.

They are undisputed masters when it comes to doing everything in-house and they do a great job with finishing and engineering, etc.

It's the intangible side - the charm, the allure, the magic of their timepieces which they need to work on.
Too thick and in your face for a genuine dress watch.
It depends on the model. The Senator Sixties is pretty slim and definitely has charm and allure IMHO.

Yes, the Senator Sixty is charming...and why I bought mine shortly after GO released it in 2007.

Sadly, most of their another lines (Pano, etc) don't hold the same allure for me.

Holy shit that's ugly. It looks upside down too. I wouldn't buy that if Eric's, I mean Art's, AD gave me 90% off!

I like GO as a cheap ALS substitute. Unfortunately, most of their stuff is too big and tall for me. A 36mm Pano at 8mm thick would be an instant buy for me.

The old panomatic models were a small 40. They wore really well.

Just how small is your wrist?

The model that just announced is 42mm and the one last week was 44mm. Getting up there...and we're not even getting into thickness.

Am I crazy or is the IV upside down? Why would it be upside down? Wait ... only the V is upside down... Am I having a seizure?

Small. It depends on my diet and how much I'm lifting, but anywhere from 6 to to 6.5 inches. Most "modern sized" watches are way too large. My 38mm IWC Mark XV is larger than I would want a dress watch.

Hmmm...ok. My wrist isn't a whole lot bigger at 6.75" (can swell to 7" after exercise).

I used to wish it was bigger, but I actually like my wrist just the way it is. I can wear a host of vintage watches that otherwise would be too small. And my XV and my BP Aqua Lung are perfect at 38mm.

I can see why a <38mm Pano that's not too thick would be a hit for you.
