I had an interesting exchange with the only ad in my area. I recently purchase a 43 mm on rubber and a 40 mm on SS. When the 40 mm came in, I was concerned that the bracelete was too narrow at the clasp. Rather than size it myself, I took it to the ad (the screws are pretty well glued in). So, I asked to see the 43mm bracelete just to see how much bigger it was and he said, the 40 mm watch is a ladies watch. I know the 36mm is meant for ladies, but isn't the 40mm basically the same size and dimensions as a Rolex sub? I know the clasp isn't as long, but it's width is about the same. Anyone have any feedback or anything on this? I really like the dial size of the 40mm, but already concerned about the bracelete size coupled with being told it was a woman's watch- feeling a bit like returning it.
thoughts? For the record, I don't think the 40mm looks like a ladies watch, personally, I'm used to larger watches and am concerned I won't wear it. I don't think it looks bad. I currently wear the 43mm and a bell and ross 46 mm - so my tastes just tend toward larger straps/bracelets.
