    Question Flieger Classic 40- Does it work on a 9"+ wrist?

    Hello nice people.

    I started with watches a loooooong time ago. I went from small to big, and now I am back to small and light. Dug this up from my safe, which I did not wear for some time. It is the Flieger Classic 40, no date, hand wind. Still works wonderfully and keeps very good time. I set it 2 days ago, wore it yesterday and today, and it gained 10 seconds, not bad. I put it on a blushark alphashark green nato, they are my current favourite natos.

    I am including a couple of photos and I am seeking opinions.

    Does the watch look ridiculously small on my wrists or is it passable? Would it look good in an executive meeting room?

    Any and all opinions are welcome.

    Thanks.

    Passable!!! Especially since the watch isn't too thick.

    I think it would be fine, but on a black or dark gray or silver Nato.

    Salam, Tariq. Cor, now that's what I call a wrist!

    I note that you refer to the possibility of wearing it in an executive meeting room - will you be wearing it with long sleeves? If so, then I think the 40mm would look quite good paired with a formal cuff, especially if it's on a leather strap. Because of your size it would actually look like a small dress watch!

    Thank you good people. I changed to a more formal nato and am wearing it. I just needed that little validation ;)

    i think 43mm (sport klassik) would be better fit to your 9" wrist
