All good points. But I must correct myself. I think my wrist is closer to 7”Thanks, that's helpful. I know what you mean, the classic styling, dial, new steel etc really tempt me with this watch despite the planet ocean being a stupendous watch with great movement. O just have a thing about an all brushed case and thinner bezel and the only other real watch like that would be a blancpain which is a lot more expensive.
My wrist is prob more like 6.75 inches so it's handy to see how it wears on you.
Additional observations/ considerations. The contours of the case sides disrupt the perceived thickness from a visual perspective. The raised sapphire also helps. Photos of the PO I’m looking at seem to depict a taller, slab side. It’s crystal also appears flush with the bezel. But reality may be different if the PO’s case back sinks into your wrist. It’s proportions may also make it “appear” taller on the wrist since the lug-to-lug is shorter. Here are a few more shots. I took the two overhead shots for a better a perspective that it doesn’t overhang.
Note - I swapped the thick rubber strap for an Erika’s Originals I had and find the fit much better under my cuff. I have a black tropic strap on order.
