Since I bought my 2504.80 Omega Aqua Terra a few months ago, I’ve learned that 36mm is the perfect size for my 6.5” wrist.
After owning various sized watches over the years from 46mm (cringe) downwards, I’m now all about the proportion and not what ‘I can get away with’.
Lug to lug is obviously just as important as case diameter but even large case/short lug pieces still (in my eyes) look too large on me.
What other modern 36-37mm watches are there out there besides the Rolex Datejust 36, Oyster Perpetual 36, Tudor BB 36, Grand Seiko 37mm?
Over the past few months I’ve taken my 7 watch rotation down to 4; the AT at 36mm, Longines Heritage Conquest at 35mm, Seiko SARB035 at 38mm and Seiko SKX at 38mm.
I love the looks of the SARB but would prefer it a tad smaller and thinner. I’ve been eyeing vintage Rolex Air Kings at 34mm and 36mm Datejusts but interested to see if I’m missing any other modern, mid sized examples from well know brands.
Any Basel rumours?
