A battle of wits ? Not.  Was reading up on the MARE Nostrum when an idea struck me.

A quick photo comparo of the all too familiar 44mm Luminor case vs the reatively new 42mm Radomir case. I also thought it might be useful for propective buyers who have yet made up their minds........ hopefully this will further tip the scales in its favour

An extreme a contrast as you can get. One's polished and in steel, the other matte finished in Pink Gold (sans the bezel).

Sandwich and a painted dial. Have to say I love the sandwich dial much better as it gives a perception of depth. Not to mention the way it lumes !

Tobacco vs Black dial

Contrasting crowns of glory

What makes the Radomir such a comfortable everyday dress watch.... Its slim and fit under the cuffs, and its 42mm case most certainly fits my smallish wrist (6 1/4") much better.

Case thickness is well and apparent in the above photo (thanks to Piaget mvt)

So which do u like better ?

I am jus glad I have em both, both very contrasting and interesting watches in 2 very classic case designs.

But I would prefer the luminor.
For me personally a rad must be 45mm and bigger.

I must admit I agree with Ernst, though your Radiomir 42mm is just stunning !
