Shaun, just managed to get myself an orange W001, when it arrived I found it to be slightly smaller than the rest of my collection, looking at yours it looks the same, ie smaller, would I be correct?
p.s if you come across a turquoise one, let me know! Bowie
Hi Bowie, you are right, my orange faced W001 is slightly smaller than the rest of my W001s. Bit annoying as the 'normal' sized W001s are a perfect size but the orange is the best colour but a fraction too small in my opinion.
Just measured mine and the case size is 41mm, but only 39mm on the orange faced one.
This is a shame as I think a watch needs to be around 41mm to look sporty and cool, 38-39mm is just an average boring normal watch size and thus looses that certain 'look' in my opinion. I would love to know why Animal decided to make the orange one smaller, there must be a logical reason, is it the 'boys' version or was it aimed at the Japanese market who like them smaller?
Still keeping mine though as I love the colour!
Next on the list is a dark blue one and a black one with yellow markings!
Just seen a Turquoise one that you were after on Ebay, Bowie, but they want £110 and £100 for an orange one.
These W001s are going up in value at an alarming rate.
