    Any white dial vintages between 36mm - 39mm? Yellow Gold or Gold Plated

    Hey all,

    Looking for a vintage, ideally Omega, in the 37-39mm range that is yellow gold or gold plated. I have found that majority of Omegas and most vintages from the 60's were all 33mm-36mm which is too small for my 7" wrist. Recently tried on a 36mm DJ at my AD and 2 employees their literally said that is way too small....

    Would you have any recommendations?

    Thank you

    This is a favorite of mine:
    I have the Black Dial version of the 14K gold bezel Accutron Astronaut. It si an amazing watch. The white dial is a little more uncommon (on the gold version). Watch measures 38mm and can be worn very comfy up the wrist if you like due to lack of crown.

    Features GMT rotating bezel, and 4th 24 hour hand


    Other than that... there a ton of options on ebay. GP, Omega, JLC, and more all pop up in Ebay when I type 38mm Vintage Gold in the search. Just narrow down dial by eye,

    They are less common, but many brands (including Omega) made some larger watches, these are often called "jumbo" references. They are desirable and sell at a premium. I suggest you look through previous threads on the topic to narrow down the type of watch you are interested in (dress, sport, chronograph, etc.), otherwise the suggestions will be all over the place, and not helpful. Ultimately, of course, you have to find the watch, which is more difficult than just getting suggestions. So you may want to search for "vintage jumbo gold Omega" watches, and then feel free to ask questions about specific examples that you find.

    cannot Imagine 36mm being "way too small" for anyone - If it's a nice watch it's nice.
