    Question Can i pull this watch off ?!

    Hi all,

    I have been looking at buying a new watch, i have found one that i like, but i think it might be too big for me.
    I've always liked watches , but have only just started wearing one recently, I have a fairly small wrist, around the 7 inch mark, give or take.

    I know everyone has different dimensions and there are a lot variables which determine how a watch fits.

    Here are a few photos for reference, does it look like i could pull it off given the following information. If not, i am open to any recommendations, I have a love for mechanical watches and usually read the time in 24hour format.

    The G-shock fits and i don't think it is too bad, but i think the flexible material assists with that a bit.Name:  watch.jpg

    It should also be noted that the watch i am interested in ins't exactly like the one in the picture, it has a slightly smaller face at 40mm, i am not certain if this translates in a smaller lug to lug size though.

    My wrist is almost half an inch smaller than yours, I have effectively the same watches as your first and last 2 photos. The Ratnik wears smaller than it looks and any G-Shock is going to look oversize on pretty much anyone, that's part of it's appeal.

    You're really not going to know until you see it on your wrist.

    Thank you and i appreciate your answer.
    I totally understand that the only way i will know for sure is to wear the watch.
    I consulted the forum given that i have no way to see it on my wrist without buying it as there are none locally and it's an expensive test fit.
    The only alternative i have is to find one with similar dimensions and design locally and try that on.

    I think it should be fine.

    Just remember tje lug to lug width is a much much better indicator of fit than the face domension.

    Thank you.
    My main concern is lug to lug width. I plan to try on a watch with the same lug to lug width (55mm) as the photo. This lug to lug width will be boarder line for me i think given the geometry of my wrist. Though i know case design may also play a part.
    Comfort is my main priority, I wouldn't have an issue wearing a bigger watch in general, it's just not comfortable if i have too much lug overhang.

    sometimes when you get them on your wrist, it would fit better.

    i think it is okay.

    I can see no reason why you shouldn’t be fine with it.

    55mm lug-to-lug is pretty wide and I would say try on the watch before buying. I would hate to go any bigger than that.

    55mm is huge. While it's an assumption on a 7'' wrist your gonna find it extends beyond the wrist.

    My opinion.
