Out of my normal pattern, I wore an Omega with the 1342 quartz movement on this fine October Friday:

No it’s not a ladies watch it’s an Elgin E-5
It’s small but I like it.

Great looking watch and doesn't look too small.
When I put on one of my "small" watches they seem so tiny at first, but after I've had it on for a while
it seems like the small watches aren't so small.

I hate to break it to you, stryfox, but the E-5 actually was a ladies' model. (See the picture below, from the 1928 Edwards-Ludogwig-Fuller catalog, which shows the ribbon band and clasp.) However, it's large enough, and has subsidiary seconds, so you can get away with it -- I think it looks great with the band you have on it! Enjoy!

The E-5, E-6, and E-10 were all intended to be ladies' models. Since they had sub seconds, they were particularly useful for nurses.
