Hi all - This is my first post in the WUS Forums. I am close to purchasing the Portofino 8-Days (Silver Dial), but am a little concerned about the size of the watch on my wrist. I tried it on at an AD and it seemed fine, but after I started doing some research, I don't know if it would look funny on my small wrist which I believe to be barely 6". I plan to wear this watch strictly with formal wear and occasionally at the office, so it won't be an everyday watch by any means.
I've always worn larger sized watches and never gave it much thought before as I was always able to use the regular strap that came with the watch at the next to last hole. However, I'm not sure if the Portofino would look odd in the non-casual settings I plan to wear it in. I considered the Portoguese 7-Day as well, but I just don't want to spend $2k more on that watch as I'm already stretching the budget to get the 8-days.
I've attached some wrist shots of my LW 3-Timer and PAM 90 (on a steel strap). I feel totally comfortable with these and actually prefer the weight over thinner watches like the JLC Moon Ultra-Thin.
I'd appreciate your thoughts.
