    Getting used to less than 44mm watch

    Having to burn through 44mm and beyond watches, i now add a relatively smaller watch at 40mm.

    i have a small wrist at 6".

    it looks small, wear fit and feels weird at first. as time pass, it felt ok and comfortable. i will consider a 40mm watch in the future in a more favourable light.



    do you share the same thoughts in the current age of bulky watches?

    post your wrist shot too!

    It still looks big on your girly wrist :)

    But seriously, a 44mm case must look like you shop for watches at Flav-o-Flav's Horology Emporium

    Man 44mm must wear pretty big on your wrist. I have 8" wrists and still love my chunky divers and chrono's but also like how my 40mm dress watch fits. I suppose each style of watch should have its place as to what size it should be.

    Re: Getting used to less than 44mm watch

    My wrist measures just under 7" and I have decided that 42mm is the largest case for me.

    I have one 44mm and it just overwhelms my wrist. I like it, though. A guilty pleasure?

    This one is 42mm:

    You may want to angle yourself away from external bezel dive watches during your transition. Watches without external bezels look bigger visually and may ease your transition to more... umm moderate size watches.

    6 inch wrist. Holy cow! 40mm looks perfect on you. 44mm must be a manhole cover ;)

    Seems we have a lot in common... this is how 40mm looks on my wrists. I'm so gonna go for like 35mm watches the next time I buy

    Even that looks pretty big on your wrist, I can't imagine 44mm and up!

    I'd say it's a very good and refreshing thing that you're trending towards smaller watches, do so with confidence, as watches look much more refined when they actually fit the wearers wrist!

    Getting used to less than 44mm watch

    Sorry for the second consecutive post, I'm on tapatalk and can't seem to add a photo in "edit".

    I have a 7.5" wrist and I'm comfortable wearing watches that are 34mm, like this:



    Or 36mm:


    See, those don't look too out of place on my wrist do they?
