    does this watch look too big on me?

    This is a 44mm pilot that I assembled.
    I freakin' love it to death but I have the tiniest wrists....(like 6"1/4 small...)

    I need your guys' honest opinion... does this look like a clock on me? Also, since my wrists are also boney (GOD why did you give me a love for horology and the worst possible wrists...) so I have to wear the watch behind my wrist bone....Does it look too far back?

    Let me know! :)

    Sharp looking Pilot! Your question is totally subjective. 44mm is what I would put in the 'large' category, but it really boils down to how you feel about it, not someone else's opinion. My wrist is 6.75'' and for me, about 40mm is what I'd consider my "sweet spot." However, I own and have owned much larger watches than 40mm and have loved them just the same. Does it look big on your wrist? Yes. Does that mean it looks bad? Not at all. The one thing I always look for is if the lugs hang over my wrist circumference. If they do, I personally don't feel I can pull it off. But again, that's my opinion on a totally subjective matter. As long as you're comfortable and confident in wearing it, you'll be fine.

    I don't think it looks too far back. It does look a smidgen too big to be, because the lugs hang over the top of your wrist some, but only if I'm being overly critical. It's not dramatic terrible or anything. It looks pretty stylish with that strap. I would wear it and continue to enjoy it if I were you.

    Thanks for the nice replies! :)

    I personally think it's just a tad too big....but then again, it's a pilot watch so it should be big.
    The original b-Uhr watches that I based this one off of was 55mm and strapped to the pilot's leg...

    According to "conventional" thinking, its a tad big. However, if you love it, that's all that matters. Wear it with swagger.

    How your arms rotated affects the size of your wrist or how your wrist look like. When you internally rotate your wrist, it becomes smaller, but other people don't see your watch this way (only you). I think the watch looks fine on you when you're relaxing your arm, as can be seen on the 1st pic:
