    Picture Extremeties.... The big and small of collecting

    Taking inspiration from another photo thread, how about we post pics of our biggest and smallest watch

    Starting the thread, I'll go first (obviously )

    Smallest, at 34mm, a mid-60's Favre-Leuba Sea King with a cali dial



    Largest, at 44mm and around seven metric tonnes, my BaliHa'i Project



    And a comparison shot, just for fun





    Okay... Now over to you all
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Insert clever and/or deep and meaningful philosophical quote here

    I'm a bit challenged in the wrist size department - my biggest watch is a 42mm Orange Monster:



    Smallest - 34mm vintage Tudor Prince Oyster Date

    Smallest - '61 Piaget at 31.5 mm:




    Largest - Seiko OM at 42 mm:




    Some tonneau shaped vintage watches like this Bulova are slimmer at 26 mm, but take up the same area as round watches of larger diameters:

    My smallest at 40mm which I no longer have (sold it because I decided it was too small)



    My biggest at 51mm and I love it




    BTW @ulackfocus: you really should get that growth on your OM checked out.

    OR you could simply remove it peel and eat.

    @whatmeworry

    I have approx. 7.85" wrist - depending on the weather. I was actually a little apprehensive about buying the ORIS as I had no way of seeing the watch for real prior to purchase, but once I put it on it was all good. Cheers.
