What size Laureato for me?

I tried both on. Disregard the bracelet/strap. I feel like the smaller one is a more timeless size but the bigger one makes a larger impact.

My vote is for smaller. Looks better proportioned on your wrist. Lovely watch!

The smaller one fits your wrist much better, in my opinion

The smaller one, but I like the overall look of the bottom one. Is it me or do these resemble the Bulgari Octos?

It is a very nice-looking watch. Love the bezel.

For the love of God, put the watch on your wrist, not the back of your hand!
The 42mm will look fine when you do.

You’re wearing the watch improperly on or below the wrist bone so any size is going to look bad. Wear it properly above the wrist bone and 42mm is the only way to go.

Yeah well this watch has A LOT of Genta "inspiration", hence why a some consider it controversial. But I like the brand, their reputation is unimpeachable and don't care who they copy. It's all Genta's ideas anyway.

Okay, thanks I didn't really think about it with the shirt I had on. Regardless consensus seems to be 38mm.

Neither. Track down a limited edition 41mm from 2016, and buy that. Itís a far more elegant watch all round.

Hmm, interesting. I was considering a ceramic as well.

In that case, my advice might be nugatory. It looks like you are after something more on the sporty, rather than dressy, end.

The smaller size looks much more appropriate for your wrist but I like the grey dial and bracelet better.

Iím now pondering whether to pull the trigger on this 2018 pre-owned beauty?
What you all think is a fair price to offer?
How many percent off from Purchase price?
TIA🙏🏻🙇*♀️
