    Dilemma ... new Santos Medium or Large

    Hello Gents and Sophisticated Ladies,

    I have a milestone approaching and I want to purchase a new Santos to commemorate it. Currently, my "sport" watch is a 2018 Rolex Sub ND. The Santos will do the light lifting of "dressy" -- even though I really do not get "dressy" very often. I prefer the no date dial of the Medium version, but wonder if it will be too small. What are your thoughts and recommendations?

    Thank you,
    Doug

    Doug, you need to buy what feels comfortable. Just because someone else might say it’s too small, on their wrist, doesn’t mean it’s too small for yours. You can provide wrist dimensions but you’ll need to go in and try both to see what you prefer.

    Hi Stebesplace, I agree and thank you for your advice. What I was hoping to acquire is first hand experiences. I saw a pic of the large and a Sub ND side by side and it’s actually looked larger than the Sub. An owner might say, “the large has been a little too large” ... a medium owner may regret “not going for the larger” ... etc.

    I like to take into account others experience/regrets so that I won’t make the same mistake.

    Personally prefer the medium, better size in my opinion plus I find the no date a bonus.

    I tried both. for reference, I have 7.5" wrists. I find the date complication useful but I see the aesthetic of the no date being a lure for sure. In my case, the size of the watch looked better in a Large. So thats the one I got. I don't wish at all I had gone medium. Before this I was wearing my Tudor Black bay and this fits smaller than that.

    Medium. But then I am a small wrist-smaller watch guy.

    I have a larger wrist if i may say, at least not too small (17-18 cm)
    Took the medium and like it like that ... have enough of larger watches from other brands

    It's a piece you really need to try on. I had my heart really set on one, then found the large was too large, but medium was too small. I have 7-3/8" (18.7cm) wrists, not tall but fairly muscular.

    My assessment is the large can work well if you have a wide hand to balance the squareness. On the flipside, the medium can work for a larger wrist but would look better on some with a lean build and seems to balance well with long sleeve shirts.

    Since you have a SubC, here is a collage if it helps. The Santos pic may be a touch deceptive as it's has the protective clamshell on.
