    Pelagos vs bb gmt

    Interested in getting a pelagos but concerned it may be too big. I have a bb gmt and that is my limit is size. I know the dimensions of each but just curious if anyone has some side by side shots or can speak on it owning both. Is the pelagos noticeably larger?

    I own & enjoy both. Not sure the Pelagos wears larger vs just looking larger. The monochrome color scheme of dial, chapter ring, & bezel on the Pelagos give it a bigger appearance. I also think Pelagos bracelet, with larger center links vs the BB GMT Rivet bracelet adds the that as well. Pretty confident the Pelagos would work if you find the BB GMT doable.

    Btw, my wrist is 7.25".

    Pelagos is mainly thick, lug-to-lug is Ok but it's a big slab of gorgeous titanium

    GMT wears smaller

    I have a Pelagos LHD and Heritage Chrono and have a 6.5 wrist. I consider both to be a good fit due the reasonable lug to lug but I enjoy wearing the Heritage Chrono more.

    I think the Pelagos looks bigger visually, but the footprint is about the same. The Pelagos was more comfortable to me.

    The Pelly is much more wearable than the GMT. The polished slab sides of the BB make it appear much chunkier. Titanium makes a huge diff also both in appearance and comfort.

    In both options, the Pelagos for me... nothing else like it. Unmistakable design, and a very tool like look and feel
