    Flieger Klassik 40mm or 36mm for small Wrist

    Hello everyone

    So I am about to purchase my first Stowa watch. I can't decide wether I should be getting the 36mm or 40mm version. I have a 6.25 Wrist.

    36mm would look subtle and not look out of place on my Wrist, but then the questions also is, is a flieger watch supposed to look subtle? This is were the 40mm comes in. If I can pull it off, I would rather go with the 40mm. It comes closer to the original in terms of design (slightly bigger bezels than 36mm version).

    So what do you guys recommend? Anyone with small wrist had to make the decision yet? Please tell me how I should go about deciding.

    Personally I just received the 40mm and, while beautiful, it has taken some time to get used to it on my 7” wrist. It felt small at first and still strikes me that way at times. I would have preferred 41/42mm. So for your wrist to my perspective it would be ideal. 36mm to me would be very small even on a 6.25” wrist. Your mileage may vary.

    A good trick is to print each out to scale and try them on.

    Thanks for the quick reply. This lets me hope that I could go for the 40mm. And nice idea with printing them out to scale. Will try tomorrow.

    40mm should be ok with 6,25
    Kind regards

    I got a 40 and it surprised me how small it is (6.75 inch wrist). My vote would be for you to get the 40.

    On a Flieger I'd say go for the 40.

    I'll chime in and also say go for the 40. I have medium sized wrists and almost find the 40 mm flieger to be too small, as others have expressed. I have an Archimede 42 mm blue dial flieger, and prefer its size over the Stowa. 41-42 mm is the sweet spot for me.

    36mm is so far from the original (55mm?), personally I'd go 40mm on my 6.25" wrist.
    Hours are like diamonds...

    I'm 7 inch wrist. And I find 40mm flieger just nice on my wrist. If I'm 6.25 wrist, I will go 36mm.
