    35mm is very wide for a pre-1950's watch, but normal for a 1970's watch...

    Please tell us what you call "vintage".

    I think he is referring to a rectangular watch, 20mm wide and 35mm long (lug-to-lug).

    20mm is the width not length. Lug tip to lug tip is 35mm.

    Being it is a cylinder escapement....I believe vintage does classify.

    He could be correct in that some 70's watches were that wide but I am not sure ever that short.

    My fault for not explaining better.

    I used to wear an Omega tanque.

    R17.8 so it had to be at least 22mm wide but I'm pretty sure it wasn't any wider than 25mm.

    I felt comfortable that it was a men's watch.

    A 5' 10" amazon absconded with it.

    It looked like a postage stamp on her.

    I think the style of this watch suggests that it is for a man.

    Most of the 18/0 Elgin watches sold in the 1930s were Men's. They're about that size.
