Here's what I learned about this watch

Verified Owner Comments: Make no mistake, this is a big watch. However, thanks to the lugless design I think it would work quite well on smaller wrists. Mine is just below average and I find it quite nice to wear.

The leather strap is excellent and should accommodate wrist sizes from about 6.4 to 8. It does need 2-3 days to properly break in. On wrist the movement runs +1.5 spd on average. I'm quite pleased with mine.

Everything I had hoped this watch would be.

Verified Owner Comments: This is a fantastic well-built tool watch that has exceeded my expectations. I could write a book on all the tremendous things built into this watch. But I'll leave it at if you are a genuine tool watch guy, this is one to have in your collection.

The watch wears large and is thick. The rounded edges allow it to be worn with a dress shirt without issue. The strap is next level. There are a couple of negatives: The strap barely fits my 7.25-7.5 wrist. If your wrist is larger than 7.25, I would probably consider going with the bracelet. The rotor is exceptionally noisy in this watch.

Overall thumbs up, one of my favorite watches!

Verified Owner Comments: Normally, 44mm+ is too large, but this is a unique watch. It’s round but oval at the same time with angles cut into the case that make it very pleasing to the eye.

I have 4 older watches using the Lemania 5100 movement. So I love the minute counter using the complete dial rather than a sub-register like most chronos - easy and quick to read elapsed minutes. This is my second 140. I bought the limited edition 140A in 2013 with silver sub registers and polished steel.

Surprisingly, I like this one better for readability and aesthetics. Only complaint- the moveable minutes under the crystal that performs like a moveable bezel on a diver’s watch is too easy to turn and disturb after setting the minutes. Love the watch!
