    Flieger/Airman Original on small wrsts

    Looking for some advice - I have small wrists (6.25 to 6.5 inches). I'm on the waiting list for a Flieger Original (June 09 delivery) but am a little concerned that the watch might be too big for me. Any thoughts from those of you with FO/AOs and small wrists? Thanks in advance.

    Hey-

    I've had a few Stowa watches and I've got a 6.5 wrist. I've actually found the Marine/Airman case to fit better than the Antea models as the lugs curve downward. Although they are a bigger watch than I thought I could wear, they fit well. Right now I'm wearing a 35mm Seiko (Sarb), my next choice would be a Marine Auto or Airman auto for size and comfort.

    Hi Taipan,

    As you see pictures on my post, it looks like that on a small wrist. Certainly FO is a large watch but it is really comfortable to wear.

    I may not go for something like 42mm case Laco Flieger. Diameter is only 1mm difference but the shape and the position of lugs is totally different.

    I believe both the AO and FO shouldn't be a problem for your wrist size.

    Thanks everybody for the replies - I'm new to the big watch craze so good to have some opinions that it'll be OK.
