Yeah, it's like the Big Block I had. I really liked it, but the damned thing was so thick, it just wasn't all that wearable for me. Well, really it was the slab-sidedness more than the thickness, as it was about the same absolute thickness as a Speedy, but a Speedy wears thinner than it is, due to the beveling on the lugs, and the general slope of the crystal and bezel.
The big crown would be great if it were a hand-winder. I think the hands are too big (there is a reason chronos usually have fine hands).
