Actually, thinking about the power reserve, does the size really matter?

You can tell whether the indicator is roughly without the markings. If it's showing that the watch is nearly unwound, you can wind it back up. I don't think that you need to know whether you have 10 or 12 hours remaining, rather you just need an approximate value.

Yeah, I know; most PR indicators just have some sort of +/- or downward taper to give you a rough estimate.  I get that, but something about this design bugs me.  I like the balance of the dial better than the model with just the small seconds, though.

Not that it really matters to me at a practical level- I'm out of the watch market. In fact I'm considering selling off several that are buried somewhere in my closet.

Yours is the titanium model, right @Alex?  I've got the steel version (SGBA229), wish I would've sprung for the 231 version as mine is quite hefty.
