Depending on how my side-job works out in the next few months, I want to treat myself to a "wear for the rest of my life" watch and was looking at the A9/500m as it has much of what I want (in no particular order):
"Enough" WR (min 300M so I can worry about it a little less when snorkelling and eventually diving)
Double-domed Sapphire Crystal
No Date or white-text-on-black date wheel
40mm or smaller for my tiny wrists
Decent enough movement
I'd like the 28800 bph Miyota 9015, so the the 21600 bph NH35A is a bit of a compromise but okay. I figured the NH35A choice was due to a mix of price and size to fit in the case.
Then the A11 came out with a
Smaller watch case which is great for my tiny wrists
28800 bph 9015 movement (so choice of NH35A for the A9 isn't necessarily due to case fit?)
But the A11
Lacks the milsub bezel (which I could compromise on)
I don't care much for the crystal caseback (but I can compromise on that)
Uses flat sapphire crystal instead of a double-domed sapphire crystal
What are the chances of an A9-variant with the 9015 movement, or an A11-variant with more of the A9 characteristics?
