Diameter 37.5mm excluding crown, 12.25mm thickness, 92 grams with stainless steel band. This is not a big watch. It is medium-sized. At the first glance, it may look like an old junk or it may appear so ordinary that lack of sex appeal, nevertheless the more you look at it, the more you will discover and like, until it becomes your favorite. Many other shinning watches may be eye-catching initially, but do not stand the test of time. This #114 is ugly at first, then turning more and more attractive.
