    Considering the PO 8900 43.5? Some motivational photos

    For reference:

    - 6.5" wrist. This wears incredibly well in person and pictures slightly larger than it actually appears. The short lugs truly make this a good fit on smaller wrists if you have any tolerance for a sizable piece. The heigh is also a non-issue IMO; I've found that a few mm of the case bottom sink into your wrist and a few mm on top are just the sapphire dome. Don't let the thickness scare you off.
    - The blue perlon was inspired by the Seamaster Ultra Deep blue strap. It's an excellent combo and incredibly comfortable and makes a PO 8900 more casual while simultaneously not losing any of the signature look. Helps fly an otherwise shiny and somewhat large watch under the radar.

    I have the 39.5mm PO and I think it fits my slim 17cm wrist, perfectly. I've also posted a picture of my old 45.5mm PO. That thing looks ridiculously large to me now!
    The PO is a cracking watch and I'm really enjoying wearing mine on it's new strap. It feels like a completely different watch.

    I think the 39.5 is actually an excellent size choice, I'm not convinced of the argument that any wrist is actually too large for it.

    Excellent pics. I switch between my 42mm Speedmaster and the 43.5mm PO quite often and find the PO just as comfortable to wear as the speedy.

    The PO has shorts lugs and fits a wide range of wrists very well. Doesn’t look like a crazy beast like the old 45.5mm. It is a great watch and top of the line all the way. The only thing I find odd is that it has 20mm lugs and not 22mm. But they look right so I guess it’s ok!
