I didn't think BR was too large they're 44mm seemed fine.

Edit: nevermind I thought I was looking at a 44 not a 42.

I just dont understand how people dealt with how uncomfortable they felt on your wrist. The angular case digs into the back of the hand. There is hardly any curvature to follow the wrist. Most of their models sort of sit on top of the wrist rather than wrap around it. Its an inherently flawed design, IMHO.

I agree, to each their own. I don't think I would include the B&R's in the huge watch category... I mean the they come in 39mm, 42mm, and 46mm. Heck you can't even get a Rolex anymore under 40mm, and the Yachtmaster is 44mm. The B&R's do tend to look larger though because of the square case and circle dial. As far as comfort, I find that it's more comfortable that my Rolex GMT, but I contribute that to the leather strap. I think wrist size and shape are the biggest factor in comfort.

The Tourneau store here in town only had the White 39mm B&Rs in stock, and those are definitely for women.

They had a couple different models.. The rubber strap one was around $3k, the ceramic strap around $4k, and the gold one was something like $7k. My wife tried one on and it looked really nice.

1. Yes, you can still get <40mm Rolex models.
2. If a 46mm B&R isn't "huge" what is? The only larger ones I can think of are the Super Avenger (or whatever they call it now) and watches that are only featured in rap videos.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

im quite upset. took my omega PO in to get replacement links because some of them got badly scraped in a swimming pool. they ordered 2 replacement links and ended up losing the first order. so a month later when i call back and ask whats going on, they say theres no order on record. they make a new one and finally they get in stock today. i go over there and the guy says that only one link can be replaced since the other one is too far up on the bracelet and there are no pins to take out. also, when i ordered the links, i signed a piece of paper that says id take them no matter what. upon hearing this though, i confronted the guy and was like you told me to order two more. you didnt mention anything about the other not being able to be replaced. hes like well sorry we ordered them for you and you have to take it as per our contract. so, even though he lied, they scammed me out of $50. this is not omega btw it is jared galleria. dont ever go there

Id seriously rather send it into Omega, get raped on the repair cost and wait the 2.5+ weeks it takes than let those morons touch it. They are NOT trained/prepared for this type of thing.

strange, Jared has no Omega stuff on their website but on Omega's retailer list they are listed. Probably one list needs to be updated.

http://www.ofrei.com might have the part you need

Maybe not all Jared stores are AD of Omega. I wouldn't trust them with doing anything to my watches. I'd look for a tourneau store if I needed work done. But that's just me.
