    Would a 45mm watch be too big for a 6.2" wrist ?

    These are the two models..

    Case 45mm

    case 43mm
    http://dctwatch.com/en-us/products/h...WATCH%20206BK/

    I love the look of them but worried they might be too big for my wrist, its 6.2" i would say, what size wrists to other people wear them on ? any pictures would be great of people wearing similar size watches.

    I cant find any other watches i like the style of as much as these, also im surprised the top is bigger than the second one...

    Thanks

    Re: Herc Watches... Lug to lug size ??

    My wrists are about the same size, I don't feel comfortable wearing anything that's bigger than 40mm. But hey, I'm not you and you're not me, maybe it'll work out just fine for you.

    Short answer - Yes, it's too big for you.

    Otherwise, it's your choice! Don't worry about what other people think. Get one, if you think it looks good keep it, if not, return it.

    Agreed, on all points.

    Let me bring up something that hasn't been talked about in this thread yet: how flat/round your wrists are. I have a 6.75"-7" wrist, but unfortunately have a rather round-shaped wrist, so the 43mm watches with the huge Panerai-style guards have lugs just look a little too big on me. But if you're one of those people with "flat" wrists, you may be able to get away with the larger watches.

    good point, I have a small flat wrist and prefer watches around 42-43mm

    Maybe one of these would fit better...

    Look for models 79255C, 907, 971 or 7925x/t...they're variations on the theme. Roughly 40mm without crown guard.

    A seller's pic of the 79255C:

    Thanks for all the replys and pictures.

    My wrist as quite flat but thin if that makes sense lol, width wise they are about 5cm or 5.5 depending how you messure it.

    Here is my daily watch it messures 4.7cm from one side to the other, but the case is 4cm excluding the crown 4.3 with.





    Will take a look at the Wenger Brigade also, thanks
