MWW Tatoskok

I have been looking for a vintage Revue lugless watch for a while with no success. I will continue to look for one, but this came up on Kickstarter. I’m not crazy about the dial colors, but it shouldn’t be hard to find a dial I like, a bezel mod might be real difficult though.

The picture, in the review, of the 6 1/4” wrist shot makes me think I might be ok getting this (I’m a 6 3/4 wrist. I don’t like that it is 45mm, I would prefer a 43mm or smaller. I know lugless watches wear smaller, but 45mm is still big. 11mm tall case, 12.8mm with the crystal may make this not as bulky.

MWW has a good reputation and this seems like a decent deal for $230 for a quartz and $290 for an automatic. At that price, I should be able to sell it or trade it for not a huge loss if I can’t wear it.

It doesn’t look like it will be funded, so this back and forth in my mind is probably for nothing.

I like the lugless design, everything like this that is newer is 47 or 48mm, I just wonder if going down to 45mm makes much of a difference.

Wonder how the balance would be also?
Agree that 45mm is still a lot of real estate on smaller wrists

Here it is on a 6 1/4 wrist and I’m 6 3/4. It might work.

Hard to say, even at 45mm the lugless design should shorten up the angle to make it fit the wrist more closely. It seems like when the watch sits high on the wrist is when people have an issue with the fit or over wrap. Just my theory anyway, don't own a case like that. Hadn't seen that model before. I kind of like the look of it but as Allison said I'd prefer it at about 42mm.

The reviews say it wears like a 42mm, that’s why I’m taking a chance. Well, that and the fact that it’s cheap so my risk is kind of minimal.
