    some sizing help

    So I'm looking at the EHC CII... has a 40mm case...14mm high

    My wrist is about 6.75 diameter, I am about 5'10 150lbs somewhat thin build.

    I know wrist diameter doesn't give the full picture, and neither does case size, but what do you guys think? Can I pull it off? I know this Hydrocarbon has the significantly curved lugs which should help.

    I avoid the HC range like the plague these days, I've had 4 models and each and every one of them has cut in to my ulna wristbone, this is due to design of the lugs and the sharp leading edge.

    And I've owned and wore nearly every EHC model with no issues on comfort or fit. Given this I generally tell members to try it on before buying when it comes to EHC watches given this variance. Note that there are several brands I've found that I can't wear a specific series of watches, but others claim they are the most comfortable they have ever worn. This happens with every brand or series.

    I'm with samanator - the fit on the EHC cases can either be the best or worst you've ever experienced, not much in between. It's generally better on smaller wrists, so you should be OK!

    I was thinking it may be more wrist shape than wrist size? My wrist is more round, where I could see the described issue for someone with a flatter wrist? I lost nearly a 1/2 inch of wrist size due to weight loss (from 7.75 to 7.25) and other than the shear monster size of the Orbital (too big now) all EHC still fit me. Maybe we need pictures of wrist shapes with the size indicated of those it does fit and those it does not fit? This may be a better reference?

    Probably an interaction - if you have a bigger worst, it has to be rounder, if you have a smaller wrist, there's a better chance it will fit regardless of shape.

    My wrist is 7" round, but pretty flat. The EHC case fits pretty well,bru I can see if my wrist was bigger could be a problem.

    I have the exact same wrist size as you do, and when I had mine EHC I found it to be pretty comfy and it sat flush on my wrist as well, if that is of any help to you.
