These days I just buy it and pretend that I’ve had it for months......

Works incredibly well with any indigo clothing (they all look the same apparently).

@Bums_Fan Nice!!! Curious — were you looking at any other sizes? What made you go for the A? I'm going to pick up a Model 10 soon and I'm torn between A and AA. Wish I could get to the shop, but god knows when I'll be able to get out there next.

If anybody else has compared the two, I'd love to hear about it. I don't want something too big/flashy, but at the same time I don't wanna spend a chunk of change on something that feels too small. Seems like a pretty finite diff between A and AA... bah I need advice! ::)

Thanks @Kasi and @Cutlasshound!

That's kinda what I'm thinking. The B's a little bigger than I want, but I worry if I got the AA, I'd wish I'd gotten the A.

I went to the shop for the purposes of comparing AAA, AA, and A.   My initial thought before seeing them in person was the AA.  As soon as I put the A on (first one I tried between the three) it was an easy decision. 

It is all personal preference, but I feel the A is the perfect balance of heft on my wrist without being too chunky.

@Cutlasshound totally familiar with that strategy - I've used it with jewelry, watches, knives, other trinkets and treasures (as she calls them), even firearms. However it gets exponentially harder every time given that the Residential Commander's neural net allows for God-level pattern recognition. 

@popvulture I highly recommend trying on a few variants if you can to see what works for you. Since I already have several mondo bracelets, with the Model 10 I went AAA given I wanted it a bit more low-key - I would wear it often to work and with suits/sportcoats. I also like to stack and feel the large bracelets overwhelm all others.

@Manticore yeah man I really wish I could go to the GAH store but I won't be able to make it there for really who knows how long... I'll go out to visit my best friend in LA, but that probably won't be til the fall at the earliest.

Best thing I could do in the meantime was cut out some strips of paper based on the link widths SE has listed on their site. Taping em around my wrist gives me a decent idea at least.

Your mentioning wanting something a little more low key strikes a chord — that's the same reason I was considering the AA. I don't stack anything too often so I wouldn't be too worried about it overwhelming, but I do generally kinda tend to like stuff that's cool/refined, not too over the top.

Rivet & Hide has some great pics of the bracelets, and they're all on the same guy (who's about my same build), so that's giving me some help too.

I’ve worn mine everyday since I purchased it.  I think you are going to be happy with it.  Congratulations!
