    Trouble Pulling Off a Metal Bracelet

    Does anyone else have trouble pulling off a metal bracelet? I have 6.25" - 6.5" wrists and any metal bracelet I've tried on just looks off to me. Not sure if it's my age (28) or thin wrists. Anyone else experience this or have a view? Is it just something I might not be used to?

    I have 6 inch wrists and have never once pondered this question. I have to remove a number of links but I love wearing my Oris Aquis on a bracelet as well as many good my other watches. Don’t overthink it, 99% of people won’t even notice what watch you have on, it’s only us WIS nerds who pay close attention. Name:  DC9EB2E2-B0CE-45D2-8AA6-CAD5BB060815.jpeg

    Nice watch! How do you wear your Aquis? As an all arounder or casually (or a mix)?

    Get a watch with curvy lugs.
    Try a mesh or Milanese bracelet as a halfway alternative.

    Try a smaller watch, like between 34 mm to no more than 38 mm. Rolex, as an easy example, makes every size of Datejust and Oyster Perpetual in non-"feminine" colors so that smaller-wristed owners aren't forced to wear pink and diamonds.

    I'm also assuming that you've had yours properly sized, yes?

    I have smaller wrists than you and have plenty of watches on bracelets. It's all about finding the right fit and the way the bracelet wraps around your wrist. Some bracelets flare out from the lugs causing it to wear larger. Some bracelets have a nice micro adjustment that allows for the perfect fit. It all depends on the specific bracelet.

    Here are a couple of pictures with un-sized bracelets (purchased Invicta to try the size) along with a watch on a strap . Maybe it's just my personal preference of looks rather than there being anything inherently wrong with bracelets.

    Definitely agree with smaller watches - I can't see myself going over 40 mm (and even that is pushing it). I will size the sarb and see if that changes my mind.

    Just keep looking and trying things on. The good news if you find you like watches under 40mm, you will open yourself up to a ton of great but significantly cheaper watches. Things like a 36mm Rolex Explorer I are being 'given away' compared to the high-demand modern sport pieces.

    I also find I personally just don't like some bracelets. I struggle to find Omega bracelets I like (they feel 'puffy'), where I love Rolex and Seiko bracelets.

    Good luck, and keep trying things on!

    Just need a smaller sized watch as others suggests. Also pay attention to the lug to lug measurement of a case.

    Bracelets will make the watch appear slightly bigger on wrist.

    38.6mm



    39.2mm



    40.9mm on Leather
