    Is this size okay for my wrist?

    Not sure if this is the correct place to ask... but I've been browsing this site for a few weeks now as I am still seeking for a watch that truly speaks to me at a price range that I can afford at...

    This is my current quartz watch at 43mm

    Do you think it's too big or it is just nice for my wrist?

    Lug overhang means it's just a touch too big imo.

    Yes indeed - that's a good indicator of whether it's too big. It's not catastrophic in this case, and the camera always makes em look bigger. And it's ultimately entirely up to you.

    To be picky because the lugs overhang your wrist the watch is classed as too big for you.

    The question I have is how does it feel on your wrist. And what is your reaction the moment you look down at the watch. If both are positive then keep it and enjoy. Don't bother with whether others like the way it looks. They are not wearing it.

    It will sound odd to a new enthusiast, but consider that not all 43mm watches are equal. The balance of the features will change the overall look and feel. The two watches I wear are both 43 and don't look identical in wrist scale.

    *I do think lug overhang is a good starting indicator though.

    AS FOR WHAT YOU ACTUALLY ASKED THOUGH, I think the pictured watch fits you, but is the limit.

    Just an eyeballed opinion.

    It looks too big to my young eyes. I wouldn't wear a watch whose lugs go past the edges of my wrist.

    +1 on that. That's the easiest way to tell if a watch doesn't look quite right on one's wrist.

    Yes, you have to make the final call. From a visual perspective, it does appear to look a bit oversized on your wrist, but ultimately, it is how it wears, feels, and looks to you.
