    Why it's great to be me...

    Why is it great to be me? Because most new watches come with bracelets that fit my wrist perfectly. I don't usually need to mess with resizing. So in light of this amazing revelation, please choose the poll choice which you believe most aptly describes this fortuitous fact.

    Thanks...

    Edit: I just noticed I misspelled "epiphany"...oops...I was distracted by my huge wrists.

    Lucky you! I always have to hold my breath when buying a watch that I haven't tried on as the braclet rarley fits and then I have to go and find an extra link.

    Also I should add its great to be ME because I am 2 meters tall and can reach everything on the top shelf. Also sucks to be me sitting in econamy on long hall flights.

    I voted you needed to get out more dude - but on further reflection, with wrists that large, and with a command of English language noble enough to just drop in the word 'epiphany', I think you should run for President of something or somewhere.

    Incidentally, my wrists are similar to yours and I have never needed a watch re-sized either - but twice I tried on Rolexes (sub n explorer) and the clasp couldn't actually shut and I was told they'd need to add 2 xtra links! And many standard watch straps barely get round!
