Christina..... I didn't get it at first. I was thrown by the size of the watch on your wrist. I'm a little slow on the take, sorry. I am allocated one of the new Spirits but to be honest with you I like the proportions of the 38mm much better. Unfortunately, I have an 8" wrist and I am afraid that the smaller piece will get lost on my wrist. I am very anxious to see the 42mm. I hope I like it. You might find it interesting that the gray strap is hippo (acquired through proper means). I have a couple of them and they are very resilient. I had Rob make another strap for the Piccadilly (I use this one most). I like the casual look it gives the piece.
