    36mm Working Fine

    HI all, I have a 7.25 in wrist and have found my tastes moving a bit away from the large watch trend back towards smaller sizes. I love the look and history or the Rolex datejust but always thought it would be too small. After much thought and trying on watches I purchased this vintage DJ from the 1980's. I am really comfortable with how it looks size wise on my wrist and so glad I pulled the trigger. Love my 40mm sub c (which wears larger) but this one is great with a suit. If any of you are struggling with the same decision I encourage you to try some smaller watches and see how they look. I believe you can enjoy both large and small. Some pics attached. Sorry for the quality.

    A lovely watch. That's smaller on your wrist than I'd personally want in any of my own watches, but as long as you're happy with it then it's great. Plus, the fluted bezel can be blingy, so it's definitely better to go on the smaller side to avoid having a disco ball on your wrist.

    That fills out your wrist nicely. I guess it varies from watch to watch. My 39mm Omega looks quite small on my wrist, which is also 7.25 inches but is flat.

    It looks perfect! Great choice. I'm of the opinion the Datejust is much better proportioned than the Datejust II.

    Very classic look. Sometimes it's nice to be able to actually see the bracelet too.

    That DJ bezel pushes the watch out a bit visually, at least I think that's what's happening in those 1970s pics, squinting a bit I can say "Looks good OP"

    But frankly my 36mm Explorer doesn't have that bezel and doesn't look oversmall either...I won't go smaller than 36, but 36 is fine. My JLC Memovox is 36mm too for that matter, looks great.

    Looks great! And since you have a Sub, that makes a great combination.

    He'd have to crop out that mouse for it to pass as a 70's pic. The rug helps.
