Autavia vs Carrera Cushions

Jeff - I certainly understand your point about the larger dimensions of the Autavia balancing out the cushion shape more, but personally, the cushion Autavias are just too big for my "girly man" wrists. I can get over it with the 73653, however, as it is noticeably thinner than the Cal 11/12/15 Carreras and Autavias, and doesn't feel as top heavy as the 1163 Viceroy that I briefly owned. The GF bracelet being so light also helps to cut down on the overall presence while on the wrist.

May be time to try one out again ;)
