    What watch do you really like, but you know does not look good on you?

    some watches are not the right size, or they do not fit your job role, personality, or spousal approval.

    whatever the reason, are there any watch(es) that you really like, but know just does not work for you?

    for me it is Bell & Ross. i really like a lot of them, but they just don't work for me.

    I've put a Daytona on dozens of times and it never looks right on me either. Same thing with the Speedmaster. I should love both watches based on their history, but they just don't feel right. I really like the PP 5135R in pictures (well, who wouldn't? ) but didn't realize how large it wears. It's not like I can afford that one anyway.

    I mentioned this in the other thread, but the Tag Monaco doesn't look well on my wrist at all - despite the fact that I love it. Same thing with the Tag Carrera.

    The Ball Fireman II is a beautiful watch, but, having put it on, it's simply too large for my wrist.

    I'd love a Fireman Night Train, but 43mm is just too much for my puny wrist.

    Two that I liked that are too big: Hamilton Khaki Officer and Ball GMT. Darn 44-46 lugs drape over my wrist!

    IWC Big Pilot. I really like the watch, but it would be far too big for my wrists, I'd look positively clownish.
