    What size watch is best for me?

    What size watch is best for me?

    We noticed the comments posted here that it can be difficult to find
    ladies watches of a moderate case size, say less than 36 mm. To help
    our readers I related these complaints to Rita Zaltsberg of RightTime
    in Littleton, Colorado.

    Rita said women often come to her store looking a a watch the same
    size as the watch they are wearing. She has them try on the watches.

    I tried to copy this just like Rita said it. So, I am calling it a quote.

    "Here is my suggestion:
    + Put on the watch.
    + Go to the full length mirror.
    + Take five steps back.
    + Look in the mirror how you like the watch.
    + Try it again with a different size watch."

    Rita said after this process they usually purchase a different size watch
    than the one they were wearing. She has the smaller watches, but she
    said the most popular turn out to be larger than 36mm. She has an
    attractive collection of watches which she said with a little discounting
    sell for less than $200. Of course, she also sells more expensive watches.

    I hope Rita's advice helps with your watch selection.

    Trying on various size watches is a good suggestion. However, it doesn't solve the dearth of midsize watches for those of us who genuinely like and feel comfortable with that size.
    Divers and bling.

    36mm is pretty much the maximum I can go. I have tiny little wrists (~5.25"), so once you add on the lugs, anything much bigger than 36mm or 37mm will hang over the sides. I've tried on plenty of larger sizes, and if I could feel comfortable wearing them, I would be thrilled. It would open up my choices dramatically. But it's not to be.

    when looking at watches for women ( I am a man) I had to get my head around some aspects that makes Men and Women chose different watches

    they are very different watches out there for sure but in my analysis

    Women look
    1) the elegance of the watch with the Strap
    2) they look for the fit on the whist ( there size maters, some small or last wrist could well go from 20mm to 45mm on a women but most likely the sweet spot is between 30mm and 38mm with 36mm being common nowadays)
    3) the Thickness of the case, often looking for slim watches (of even slim aspects visualy)
    4) The watch often need to be easy to use and no need of complication (Battery is good enough as always on time)

    During my research in came to work on a watch that i think is suiting this need

    please let me know what you think of the new Gavox Stellar

    Size is 36mm
    thickness is 7,9mm
    Quartz
    Price Low
