    U1 sizing question

    Howdy all and thanks for taking the time to read.

    Have been lusting after the U1 on rubber for some time. My hesitation is the 44mm sizing with 50mm lug to lug. Having a wrist size between 6.75" and 6.9" leaves me concerned about overhang.

    I have read that some suggest it wears smaller than stated dimensions, but not being physically able to try one on I can't confirm this. Don't want to end up with an over sized garish looking timepiece on my wrist.

    Any U1 owners out there care to offer some insight? Also considering the EZM line as they seem to be in the 41mm range and that is a sweet spot for me....

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi, I have a similar wrist size and wear a U1. No problem whatsoever with the size and no overhang. It also looks larger in picture than in the flesh.

    Re: U1 sizing question

    Good question. I have a U1-T on a bracelet, and my wrist is right about 6.75. I wondered the same thing. I ended up buying used from a WUS member in my area, and was able to meet up and actually try it on to see.

    The watch is perfect. Any smaller and I'd feel that something was amiss. It is truly a well designed watch.

    Not garish at all imho. The design is unique, but fairly subtle nevertheless. Nothing flashy about it, which is one reason I enjoy it.

    My 12yo daughter, the fashionista in the family, still comments on it.

    Happy Hunting!

    Re: U1 sizing question

    My wrists range from 6.5-6.8 (slight difference between the two) and I wear my U1-T SDR on both bracelet and rubber and it looks fine. It is a tall watch, but the overall dial (and bezel) wear smaller than you'd expect. If you are into smaller watches, however, it will certainly be noticeable. On the whole I strongly recommend it, especially if you are a fan of the design.

    Re: U1 sizing question

    Thanks for the replies. I am seeing an overall trend here that a majority of owners agree this wears smaller that the stated dimensions.

    I am guessing much like my Squale 1521, the 42mm stated case size wears nothing like a 42, more like a 40 based on design.

    Thanks again for taking the time to reply and Jasper110 thanks for the pic, great looking watch......

    Re: U1 sizing question

    Another thought. Owning a 43.5mm Oris Aquis I am wondering if there is much difference between these two regarding wrist presence.......

    Re: U1 sizing question

    As others have said, I wouldn't worry about overhang. I have a very similar wrist size to yours. I don't own a U1 but I've seen them and I do own other U series pieces... they are definitely large watches but I'd be surprised if you experience any overhang. You might find the watch "big" if you like smaller watches, but it won't be because of the overhang...

    Re: U1 sizing question

    I had a U1 and sold it. Now have a T1 which is 45 mm vs the U1's 44mm diameter.
    I found the U1 to sit high and heavy for my wrist size and shape. The larger T1 is perfect.
    Part of the difference is the shape of the back-plate and the curve of the lugs.

    You will have a hard time knowing if the U1 will work for you without trying it.
    For sure, it will look good no matter how if fits and wears.

    Re: U1 sizing question

    My wrist is 6.25" (more oval than round) with no "overhang". I know you're thinking about a rubber strap, but you can infer the size.
