      Have been collecting/using Submariners since 1974,
      Bought a 1665 about 1976 and it has been my daily beater since.
      Perfect size now but I thought it was a monster when new.

      Have had a gorgeous 5508 for several years. Will use it
      one or two days a week. Love to wear it.
      Sure it is smaller but it makes up for it with tons of
      character, charm and color. The black gloss dial is a deeper black,
      the gold on the hands is bright and cheerful. gilt
      writing striking, and the lume a rich tan. Wow.

      On the other hand, I had a "Mount Everest Explorer". Very
      small watch. Cute but too small. Looked like a girl's watch on me.
      Sold it years ago.
