    Sinn Frankfurt FD 6000 34mm....too small for 6.75" wrist?

    I saw one of these online recently and think it's gorgeous.
    However at 34mm it seems small even for my slim 6.75" wrist?
    Any experience from owners past and present on this?
    Any wrist shots on similar size wrists?
    If not how about the 6030 which is I believe a 38.5mm version with a seperate GMT type hand?
    How do they look on a really nice quality brown croc strap?
    Tempted to sell my 2013 black SMP ceramic 41mm to get one....(am I mad?!!!)
    Been looking for a nice 36-40mm black dialled chrono like this (or like the 356 etc) for ages but not yet found one I "need"!

    Cheers

    Neil.

    I think you have your models a little confused. The 6000 is 38.5mm, the 603X's are 34 mm, the 6060 is 38.5 also, and the 6090 is 41.5 mm with the second time zone on a sub dial. I would like to see these in person, as I am interested in especially the 6000 but I am concerned about its thickness relative to its diameter. I like low profile watches and of course the Valjoux is a pretty thick movement requiring a deep case. I am looking at it as a dressier option, but I am afraid the 15 mm thickness will look too "sporty". I am thinking the 6060 or the 6090 might be the best choice for me. (7" wrist)

    For a 6 3/4" wrist, I have no doubt a 6000 would be a great fit.

    If you can live without a turning bezel, the 356 series will suit you better, as a thinner case under the domed glass makes it look less thick. (My 103 St plexy looks even nicer and thinner...) The SMP plays in quite another league though...
    I'm happy with my 41 mm Arktis on bracelet, sits well on my 6.75" wrist. Being not a fan of the big watch hype the only exception (= above 42 mm) is my IWC AT 376706 Cousteau Chrono, but the lug design makes this watch sit extremely good, though the case is 43.5 and the bezel is 45.5 mm, on a 15.4 mm thickness :) all the others are between 35 and 42 mm for me. Case thicknes is required on a hairy wrist - such as my case... hope this helps.
    Best,
    Robert
