This is painful, but I look forward to seeing the images when I get home tonight.



: Here you go Rob-I don't have a 73653 but here we have-

: L-1153
: M- 1163 (V) (Schmitz case)
: R- 73453

: I really thought the 1163 would tower over the other two-but
: evidently not! It actually looks smaller but that's due to the
: fall-away sides. It's the bezel that increases the overall
: height...and maybe makes it feel top heavy as you put it. I also
: feel the smaller diameter case back fascia may have something to
: do with this-as there is less skin contact...perhaps?
: (especially on the Schmitz)

: Interesting (but not totally surprising) that the 1153 and the
: 73453 are almost identical in overall height.
: Best,
: Steve
