Any recommendations for an understated everyday-wear for a giant? I'm 6'6" and a chunkster so stuff either looks like I'm wearing a kid's toy or seems to be in the CHECK OUT MY CHUNKY AS FUCK XTREME WATCH style.

Can stretch to about $500 for the right watch but willing to consider anything.

I'm currently wearing an Orient CEZAD001B (Catchy name, huh?) and I like it so far.

I paid about $200 for it a year or two ago and it fits my large wrists. They're kind of hard to find now, but try to find another watch for under $200 that has a power reserve, quick release strap, and made in a decent country.

Measure your wrist, just because you're tall doesn't mean you have mammoth wrists.
Unless it's 8+" circumference, stay away from watches bigger than 44mm in diameter.
Also worth measuring how 'tall' your wrist is, where you'll wear the watch, makes estimating fitting easier.

I know it's a watch thread, but I don't think there is no better place to ask.

I want to buy my gf a replacement for her Sony Smartband SWR10 (smartwatches are not an option).

As of right now I'm leaning towards the newer smartband from Sony, SWR30 or something from Garmin.

That's different because a switch like that can also be hooked to a specific power socket or something like a garbage disposal. If the label said "switch" it would be more similar. Because the label would be telling you the exact same thing that you can already see anyway.

No, I took it. Very dim window light from the top-right corner of the photo (the watch was face-up on a horizontal surface), I rarely actually use any flashes because I'm lazy and watches are too small anyway, usually just window light and sheets of printer paper for diffusers. 30 second exposure, which is pretty obvious from the lume trail of the seconds hand. The background was mostly black to begin with but I burned it a bit in photoshop to make sure it was all totally black. Not much processing aside from that and removing some dust specks.

Like you said, the light is slightly behind the watch, so how would it reflect off the crystal? For a shot like this with the camera facing the watch head-on then the light would have to be right behind the camera also hitting the watch nearly head-on in order to create a glare.

But the SARB065 is kind of meh.

They went domed mineral instead of domed acrylic of just sapphire, and it's the kind of watch you would wear only formally.

While the SARB033 is both fine for formal wear and casual wear. Or the little bit of lume bothers you then get SRP703.

Rigged up a shitty lightbox last night to try and take a half decent photo. Turned out alright. Absolutely no complaints with this watch other than the squeaky watch strap which isnt at all related to the watch. What do other esteem owners wear with this watch?

Vintage Swiss watches are plenty and easy to find but you might not be able to find much info about some of them, vintage Jap watches are piss easy to find and also easy to find info about (Citizen,Seiko,Orient and you got almost everything covered).

You could also go to the slav end, good Pobeda examples cost like 40$ and they are 33~34mm.
