    Will these watches be too large on my wrist?

    I have 6 3/4" wrists, so as you can see they are pretty small. I just need some advice from people who already have these watches and know more about watches than I do. I've been wanting to buy the GD100-1b or the GD100MS-1, but I'm worried they'll be rediculously large on my wrist. I love the blacked out military style of these watches and I really want it to look good on me. I have a pretty muscular build, but I'm very lean so my wrists are on the smaller side. Will these two watches be really big on my wrists or will they look normal? I'm pretty sure the face of these watches are about 50 mm. (2 inches) in width. Thanks for the help!

    Hi and welcome to the forum!
    The GD-100 does not wear much bigger than a DW-6900, but I think the strap is slightly less flexible at the lugs so it might wear a little bigger. Best would be to try one before you buy it but IMO - if you can wear a DW-6900 you should not have any problems with a GD-100 - and you should be able to find a DW-6900 everywhere in order to try it on your wrist. Maybe someone also has some comparison pics or a similar wrist size and can post some photos. My wrists are not much bigger - about 7'' - so maybe this helps (it's a GA-100 but it has the same case as a GD-100):

    Besides the helpful and accurate stuff above from Sedi, I would say only that it will probably come down to a question of how 'flat' your wrists are. Two people with wrists of your size might end up with different opinions about the wearability of that model based on this question.

    If your wrists are wide and thin, then it will look fine on you (probably), whereas if your wrists are a more cylindrical 6 3/4" it might look a bit oversized. If at all possible try before you buy.

    I haven't really been able to find out the correct model number as it was an export model which is not included in the G-Shock Perfect Search. It's also not listed in the great watchshock archive by our member Riley. The only pictures of it I can find with google pic search are my own . It's a DW-6900S "Surfing Timer", but the complete model number is unknown. It's grey so it should be DW-6900S-8, but the DW-6900S-8 is much darker:

    But there's also some purple writing on the adapters so it might be a different model number. Someone on WUS told me it's a DW-6900S-6T, but in the watchshock archive the "6T" model is translucent blue.

    Here's one other pic I could find which also claims it's a DW-6900S-6T:
