1. ## 06. Case size and other issues

Hi guys,

A new thread to discuss the upcoming case size vote and any other issues as the old thread was getting a little long in the tooth.

2. ## Re: 06. Case size and other issues

Just wanted to warn everyone that the usual knee-jerk cries for 40-something millimetres needs to be thought through in the case of a square or rectangular watch. A 38mm Cartier tank (for example) is a vast thing.

Whether square or rectangular, I love the addition of gentle little curves....but no deal-breaker either way

With respect to the case, if possible i would prefer a curved case and not a flat case. The curve dose not need to great.

in terms of size I think 30mm width, and lug to lug of around 45mm.

On a square case, the size of the diagonal is equivalent to the diameter of a round case. As we all remember:

hypotenuse2=x2+y2

so on square watch we need to take the square root of double the squared width

Width of square .... round watch equivalent
30mm.....42.5mm
29mm.....41mm
28mm.....39.5mm
27mm...38mm
26mm.....37mm
25mm...35.5mm
(results rounded to nearest 0.5mm)

So I would be voting 26-27mm

edit: of course, if its curved then....then someone else needs to do the maths....

Let the lobbying begin!!

Surely the above style being more rounded would want to be at least 37mm?
