    Small Wrists

    My wrists are <5.5" (5.4?) and therefore I have a lot of trouble finding a watch that:

    A. Isn't a woman's watch
    B. Doesn't have Disney characters on it

    I've only owned 1 very cheap Japanese watch that fit well. Suggestions?

    Women wear watches for men so I don't see why you can't wear a woman's watch.

    G-Shocks. Doesn't matter what size your wrist is. 13 year old's to 50+ year olds wear them and they look okay. It's built "shock" tough for cryin out loud.

    My Wrists are 6.5 Inches >>>

    (This is a Premier @ 42mm Ish)



    (Speedmaster 3510.50 @ 38mm)



    (Mido Commander @ 40mm)


    (Omega Seamaster SM200 Vintage @ 38mm Ish)


    >>> So in summary i think anything that is 36mm - 38mm will suit u just find and there are SO many to choose from. I also dont see the problem with a Ladies watch as said, Girls do wear mens size watches ;).

    You can wear vintage watches which are very nice, very reasonably priced and usually below 40 mm. Most Seiko dress watches (e.g. Seiko Spirit) are around 37 mm and fit small wrist.

    You may also wear larger watches with a "single piece" case, that is, without extended lugs, like many watches from the 1970s era. The Vulcain below is about 42 mm, but it sits comfortably on my very small wrist:

    Zoa- Bartek's suggestion about vintage watches might be the ticket. They are mechanical, stylish, generally smaller, and typically less expensive than newer watches. There are a ton of them out there, too.

    My wrist is a similar size and thus always use the smallest hole on leather straps. Your solutions are: wear bracelet -- you can remove as many links as you like, or buy smaller watches -- 36-38mm as mentioned.

    Longines does a small watch where I use the second-smallest hole, it is fairly affordable at $900, and I think an excellent value for an ETA 2892-2 movement.

    The problem with women's watches isn't that they're "made for women", it's that most of the time I just dislike the way they look.

    Thanks for the suggestion on the older watches, I will look around for those.

    To clarify my budget is, apparently, tiny. Like <$100.
