    opion on this oris watch

    Hey guys, with my small wrists, i been looking at my watches. i noticed some of my larger case 42mm to 44mm diamter watches with Very short lugs seem to look better on my girl sized wrists, then my 38mm to 40mm watches with Long lugs. Anyways to get to the point!

    Here is 38mm Swiss hunter, im wondering if the lugs are very long on this ? if it has a long lug to lug length, kinda defeats the point, anybodys guess if these lugs are long ? im intersted in aquis as well its lug to lug is 50mm, if this 38mm is not gonna give me a shorter lug to lug say 46mm, whats the point?

    thoughts on length of this watch?

    I did a quick Google and found it listed at 48mm L2L (47.9 to be precise).

    I'm pretty adept at Google searches. The first hit at the top of the list for me was this listing on Chrono24 that had all the specs for the 38mm version.

    i just tried to find lug lug on oris Atrix date 01 733 7642 4034-07 5 21 81FC with google and chrono 24, no luck, im thinking this watch at 42mm would look freakishy big on small wrist due to it being mostly dial, thoughts ?

    L2L is 50.7 mm

    If you want a 42 mm watch to look properly proportioned on a small wrist, you will need to find something with short lugs and a smallish dial (ideally offset by a contrasting bezel). A small dial with contrasting bezel fools the eye into thinking the watch looks smaller than it is. Check out the pics here to see what I'm talking about and how a 49mm watch can appear to be perfectly proportioned on an average wrist when it has a small dial and short lugs.

    Long lugs on a watch on a bracelet are less of a concern than long lugs for a watch on a strap.

    yeah i have a few dive watches (not oris) that are 42mm and once either 44 or 45, but will the lugs it looks better then some 40mm watches i have. Oris Divers Date at 44mm vs Aquis 43mm, i rember some one on the fourm saying the divers date almost looked like it wore smaller then the Aquis.

    the bezel on the Aquis dose it take enough room to make the dial look a bit smaller ?
