    Just take note of the script of the font and thickness for the wording on the dial. Also, several of the watches posted suffer from polished cases. The case should not be polished. For all of those, I like this best http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/16087990...WAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_3134wt_91.

    I also like this one, but it is ending soon. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/VINTAGE-...ristwatches&hash=item4abbe54e1c#ht_500wt_1414. The dial looks okay, but the photo is at a bad angle. If you could get it under $300 that would be a great price.

    33mm is a bit too small. I have a few 33mm bumpers and they spend most of their time in the box.

    Oh, stop with the pooh-pooh attitude! :p I like 33 mm bumpers. They have character.

    It is weird having wrists that are half the circumference of your forearm. :(

    You could always switch to wear wrist gauntlets, cheaper than watches :D
