    Will the victorinox inox be too big for my wrist?

    I like the victorinox inox but I am unsure about its size. I usually wear 38mm and 40mm watches. However this is a 43mm watch. I believe its lug to lug is 51mm. Now I got pretty slender wrist of 6.3inches (16cm) and a width of about 5.5cm.
    Will this watch will look too big on me?

    Yes, no doubt about it.

    I have a 6.75" circumference flat wrist, and I have two large diameter watches: a 42mm Tissot PRS516 and a Victorinox Maverick GS. I can "get away with" both of them, but they both feel and look big, and don't work well under cuffs at all.

    I find my most comfortable sizes are 34-38mm. 40 mm is usually doable, but starts to feel big. Above that, and I'm REALLY taking a risk. Spacing between the spring bars and the shapes of the lugs does play a part, but when I get to 42+mm, it's dicey.

    My advice is to embrace midsize and vintage watches. Guys with bigger wrists look kind of silly (IMHO) with the 34mm vintage watches, so they sell for cheap and us small-wristed guys can reap the rewards! :)

    Too big for your wrist.

    Re: Will the victorinox inox be too big for my wrist?

    One option you might consider, especially given your wrist size, is to go with the INOX V. It's marketed (strangely) as a women-specific model, but its 37mm size is perfect for smaller wrists. It's available in that size with a black face and black rubber strap (shown). There are other choices, but the paracord straps with the flecks of pink may not be quite as gender neutral as the black

    As a postscript to the earlier post, I started a thread about the Victorinox decision to market the V to women back in April '17; see: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/new-...e-4228434.html

    Yea that was what I was kinda expecting it to be. However a 37mm version the dial will look pretty small doesnt it since the Bezel is pretty big.

    It may be..... but I wouldn’t let that convince you into buying the larger one.

    I have a 7 1/4” wrist and wouldn’t wear something that big.

    I’d go for the 37 or nothing if I were you.

    Definitely too big due to the lug to lug measurement. They would overhang your wrists.

    It's a tough, decent looking design but continue looking and you'll find something else that'll meet your criteria and fit your wrist better.
