    Finally got around to trying on a 39mm Explorer after having previously focussed on the 36/37mm one and the bigger one just doesn't have the same appeal.
    The thing I liked about the watch originally was the nice high/deep/angled bezel that has become just a bit too flat on the 39mm model. The whole watch now looks a little too flat. I understand that this was simply because they didn't want to make the watch thicker but I think if they did in order to maintain the "correct" proportion of the bezel, it would be so much better.

    I can ignore the mildly too short hands but the bezel on the 39mm just doesn't look as good as it does on the 36/37mm one.


    Rolex Explorer.
    Perfect in 36/37mm.
    Not so much in 39mm.

    As mentioned in another thread.....that PP is drool-worthy! Congrats on both. I'm not into Rolex myself, but it looks very nice on your wrist. Of the two though, the Patek is stunning!

    How tiny are your wrists?

    The 36 doesn't look quite right on my 7" wrist.

    Two awesome watches...how about a side by side pic?

    IMO 36-38mm is the perfect size from visual and comfort perspective for most people..

    The Explorer is a watch I would consider. I only ever want one Rolex and I am torn between the Migauss GV, the Explorer (39mm) or the Sub ND.

    I think 36mm is too small for me but it looks ok on your wrist. Congratulations on two nice picks.

    The 114270 is already on my to buy list. Its probably the only Rolex I will ever buy as compared to the rest. I love its understated design. It's a total opposite to the blingy reputation of the brand.

    Also, who EVER said that 36mm was small?! My Club Dunkel fits PERFECTLY on my wrists at 36mm.

    Last but not least, welcome to the 36mm club!

    There is too much shading in the picture of the Rolex, and too little picture with the Patek, to really provide good answers. It really depends on your wrist size. If your wrist is 6 3/4 or smaller, a 36mm is probably fine. If your wrist is over 7", I find that a 36mm watch starts to look like its from an older generation.
