    Ball Hydrocarbon Original

    Always been a fan of BALL and was just waiting for the right piece to add to the collection.

    I have the Mad Cow version of this watch and it's 42mm. I have a 6.8" wrist and it looks good on my wrist. Unless your wrist is particularly small you should have no problems.

    The good thing about Ball Watches is that the lugs curve downwards and follows the curvature of the wrist. You will be able to wear this easily.

    It should be fine. One the bracelet, they pull down nicely on the wrist and stay balanced.

    Given the design of the Hydrocarbon case it will not be a problem. I have a 6-3/4" wrist and wear a 40mm Hydrocarbon Magnate daily.

    I like that Magnate. Older Ball styles were very attractive. I wanted the white dial version of this for awhile.
