    Hoping i'm not alone...!

    Hey guys,

    I've got tiny wrists... I'm talking 6-inches. I seem to be having trouble finding an online watch store/dealer who deal with a good variety of leather watch bands... From what I can find, short bands catering for skinny wrists seems to be quite limited...

    Can anybody suggest some places to check out?

    Thanks!

    What kind of price range are you looking for? There are quite a few places that do custom straps so you can order whatever you like, but they aren't super cheap.

    I like Hirsch straps and some come in a medium length (110/70) which is perfect for my small wrist. I often get them here:

    Hirsch, Omega, Deep Blue Watches and Watch Straps

    And this site has a wide variety of shorts:

    I've got 5.2 inch wrists, and I haven't yet encountered a leather band that doesn't fit properly... Metal bracelets are a bit more of a concern, but leather has always been fine for me.

    Have you had any luck with bracelets? I've only come across one that can be sized to fit my wrist (approx 6 inch) which is from my Orient Mako.

    The Seiko 5 bracelet I have on my Fifty-Five Fathoms fits very comfortably. I have a Longines Hydroconquest as well that fits reasonably well, but it's kind of a middle ground right now between too tight and too loose (Too tight if I remove one more link, and too loose how I have it). There's only one more link that I could possibly remove on this one, but thankfully I don't need to. Just need to get some mirco adjustments...

    I haven't honestly had a watch yet that I couldn't adjust small enough (but then, I've only had like 6 watches)..

    Wow, really? I've had to add extra on my 3 current leather bands. Funnily enough, bracelets for me have never been an issue....
