    Navitimer world wristshot: Does that fit?

    Dear folks,
    Unfortunately my first post is a question - but I hope I can give some valuable advice here in the future as well (I'm quite acquainted with the Speedmaster professional). However, I would very much appreciate your thoughts on the wrist shots below. I know that big watches are current fashion trend - but I like having a second hand for dual time zone and as far as I'm concerned there's no other watch like this on the market. Of cause it also depends on the individual taste - and I really like it but would appreciate some second thoughts as I intend it to be my primary watch and we all know: Love sometimes makes blind ;).

    Many thanks,
    Henrik

    PS: Apparently I try to avoid the 'gangster hip hop bling bling' impression......

    PPS: Nothing against some gold old hip hop :)

    I forgot to mention, my wrist isn't big but relatively 'flat': 16.5 mm in circumference but 6 cm width.

    If you like it, it fits. I'd encourage you to look at the Sinn 903 though. They own the rights to the Navitimer design so it's aesthetically very similar but a more modest size and probably better built.

    It is a little large for your wrist. Do you need the GMT function? I think the 43mm Navitimer would fit better. Great watch though.

    Beautiful watch. It does seem a little big on you, but nothing outrageous.

    I have 7" wrists and would go with a 43mm Navitimer. But many people like oversize watches. So if you like it, wear it with pride.

    To be honest it is perched on top of rather than fitting your wrist. It does not seem to conform to your wrist at all. As a consequence it will slip around a lot unless you really tighten that strap down. Yes it is too wide, too tall and the lugs don't conform to your wrist.

    I've got a 7,5" wrist and can pull off a 46mm Navi. Only just. If your wrist is smaller that 7,5" I think it might be too big for you.

    well, you wear a Navitimer better than me. I think it just fits given today's standards and perhaps with a different band, it might sit/appear more fitting. But, if I'd go with your gut which led you to post here. If you have reservations now, they are not going to go away.

    Hi

    Very nice watches

    I've an old one (1965) It's only around 40mm, My wrist is around 73/4" Or around 195mm, It feels comfortable whereas some larger watches don't!!
