If you could get a 5726 Blue , that would be great! Just my thoughts.
Much appreciated. I watched a really useful comparison video by Watchbox (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NWs5yiJW6w), and it does look a lot thicker.

Did you find the 5726A heavier compared with a 5712/26 on a bracelet?? I like the fact that it is thicker and SS.

Yes, the blue is something else. The release of the blue dial seemed to send the rest of the range into price orbit. I get the sense the 5726A is an acquired taste due to color and strap.
