I think it is important to remember that this forum represents a tiny percentage of the entire watch market. It sometimes gets hard to remember that when you spend a lot of time on a niche forum, talking about a niche hobby, with insanely picky people.I've noticed most of the recent discussions on this forum have been about 36mm watches. There is definitely a trend toward the smaller end. When I first bought my flieger I was disappointed and really regretted the 40mm size as being too small for me. I got it because there was no attainable larger option with a central seconds hand. Since that time, however, my tastes have changed enough where it is the largest watch that I currently own other than a G-Shock. The size is absolutely perfect for my 7" wrist.
You see where the problem could lie? 😅
