Yeah, 40mm is about as big as I’m willing to go, and even that can be a little much with some designs. I love the smaller looks on some of them. I’ve had a vintage Hamilton Chrono-Matic and a vintage Carrera, and something about a standard chronograph dial in 36-37mm just looks amazing after seeing all the 42mm chronographs that have been popular lately. I’ve got a Hamilton.
I 37mm chronograph is where it is at for me. My prized possession is an original cal 321 Speedmaster. An early Heuer Carrera with panda dial is my grail, but I can’t justify what they go for these days. When I got started they used to go for about $500. Now you can add a zero and still not able to find a decent one.
