    ALT1's on 6.5" wrist

    Would anyone with a 6.5"(ish) wrist be kind enough to post some on the wrist pics of your ALT1 series watch. I haven't been able to try one on and won't be visiting my local AD until sometime in April when the ZT/51 arrives.I would just like to have an idea how its going to wear.I'm hoping its going to be ok due the the shorter lugs and the fact that there is somewhat of a bezel as the dials don't extend out to edge of the case.

    Sorry no picture, but i tried one on and it fit my 6.5" wrist better than most watches this size. The lugs curve to make it comfy.

    Re: ALT1's on 6.5" wrist

    Hey guys. I was just wondering if there were any more pics of the Alt-1 variants (ideally ZT) on smaller (6.5in) wrists?

    I'm looking at purchasing a special edition Alt-1/ZT. I really want to as it'll be a personalised edition for my Unit and it's the model that the group had decided upon. I'm worried it'll too big, however. I have a Rolex Exp II (the 16570) that fits beautifully, an Omega Speedmaster Pro that fits well at 42mm and a Seiko SKX009 that also fits quite well at (I believe) 42mm. I'm worried that the extra mm of the Bremont's case diameter, the extra couple of mm on the lug-to-lug and the whopping 16mm case depth will all add up to be just too big!

    I unfortunately have no way to view the model in the flesh prior to purchase, so I'm really trying to look to others for a suitable comparison! Thanks!

    I don't have a photo of an Alt-1, but I did used to have an MBII and my wrist is about 6.5". It wears fine actually...smaller than a Panerai but a little bit bigger than a 42mm speedy. I would think an Alt-1 wears about the same as an MBII. Good luck!

    If your unit is getting a good price on the watches, I'd say go for it, it will be something you can look at and appreciate for years after your military career is over. Here's mine on my 6.25 inch wrist. It's definitely a big chunky watch, but I don't find it to be too big, I just don't wear it as my "everyday" due to the size. I find that on my smallish wrist, it looks best on a NATO. Leather straps are OK, but add to the general feeling of thickness. I bought the bracelet, but I'd save my money and do without it, if I were you. It's similar to the Speedmaster bracelet in that the end links protrude a couple mm, causing the links to hang off the edge of my wrist, rather than wrap around it. I wore it for a few weeks and it just didn't look good, so I swapped back to a strap.Name:  IMG_20131030_114809.jpg

    I have tiny 6.25-5” wrists too. My MB3 is about the max of what I can wear. It’s too bulky with a NATO so I use an Erika’s. The lug to lug is not too big so that helps.
