    Help/Suggestions for new dress watch for small wrists!

    Hey Guys and Girls,
    Iím in the market for a new watch, and was hoping for some suggestions! The difficulty I have is that I have very slim wrists, so canít really do anything more than a 38mm case (max), and not too chunky either. 36mm would prob be perfect, but I know overall my choices are limited.

    A couple of possibles Iíve seen are the Baume & Mercier Classima Executive (which at 38.5mm and £1,500 is at my limit of both size and price) and the Oris Artelier Date or Complication which are done in both 40mm and 35mm for about £800/£1,000. I know B&M uses ETAs as the base, Oris too? Longines seem to have some attractive looking pieces too.

    If anyone has any ideas in that price/size/style (i.e. classic, dressy) range, Iíd love to hear them! I know the B&M will lose value immediately, but not such a concern as Iím planning on a watch Iíd want to keep, not sell/trade. More than happy to pick something up used (provided itís from a reputable dealer so I get a guarantee) as well though, but any suggestions would be welcome!

    Marc

    Hi IanC - couldn't tell you the circumference of the top of my head (don't have a flexi tape with me in the office either I'm afraid!) but the 38mm limit is because with anything more than that the lugs start overhanging. The watch I currently have on is 38.5mm and it's just about ok, anything more would start to look a little off. Wouldn't feel comfortable with anything more.
