    Full Size or Smaller Sinn, or Laco Squad?

    Hey, I'm posting here as a newbie of sorts. I have a nice Bell & Ross vintage 126 in about a 40 mm which works well on my wrists, but wouldnt want to go much bigger due to scrawniness. I am looking at the Sinn U1 or UX v. the U200, and also at the Laco Squad. I am only interested in the black PVD style watches at this point. I like the price of the Laco Squad but think 46 mm is way too big. I like the U1 or UX but worry that 44 mm is too big as well... Alas, the U200 seems too small..

    This has probably been discussed ad nauseum... anyone have any advice? My wrists are probably around 6.5" and kind of flat on top.

    Thanks!

    Edited, just remembered the OP is interested in black PVD watches, which rules the EZM 3 out. Apologies.

    My wrist is about the same size as yours. The Squad wears smaller than you would think because of the hinged lugs.

    What about:
    856 S / 856 S UTC. 40 x 11 mm
    756 S / 756 S UTC. 40 x 14 mm
    If you need a bezel then the EZM 3 is the only 40 mm.

    Go to 41/42 mm and there's a lot of choice, but not much in black.
    657 S is 41 x 12 mm, with bezel, discontinued but might be around somewhere.

    Thanks for the responses, actually I just noticed the EZM 3 and while I like the look of the U series better, the size is right on. I could see going for the EZM 3 with the rubber strap. I do like the Laco squad but but for my taste it takes up too much of the wrist... I heard they made a 40 mm version at one point but I havent seen it around. If I go for the EZM 3 I'll send a pic.

    Perhaps Sinn 657S or this one:

    Thanks for the pics, the Damasko looks nice. A Sinn UX in a 39-40mm would be ideal. Leaning toward the EZM 3 at this point unless I can try on a full size UX somewhere in the CA Bay Area.
