    41mm is TOO DARN SMALL!

    I know this is bucking the trend, but I really hate the current trend towards 41, 40, 38mm watches!

    So many attractive designs are being released, but they end up being less impressive in person when they are so tiny.

    I don't have a huge wrist (flattish 7.25") but 40mm looks like a ladies watch to me. 42mm to 44mm is perfection...even 45mm, but it's like EVERYONE is doing 40m now.

    Example:
    Hunted the Orion Calamity for a while. Looks great in pics. Finally got one. TOO SMALL!

    You are not the only one. To me anything smaller than 42 looks just ridiculous.

    My Sub is 40mm and it's perfect in my opinion. I have a 7 1/2 inch wrist. To each his own.

    I totally agree... and I have only a 6.75” wrist.

    Was super excited to get my Squale GMT Ceramica until I pulled it out of the box and put it on. Like you said, it felt and looked like a lady’s watch, even compared to my SKX. Really beautiful watch, but it went back the next day.

    Agreed! I hate small watches and only wear tool watches like my Marathon GSAR! I don't own a dress watch and never will!! But I've got nothing against if others like them their just not for me especially on my 8.5in wrist...

    7.5 inch wrist here, wear anything from 36mm to 45mm or more, no problem.

    40mm to 42mm is the sweet spot.

    IOW, 41mm is not too small.



    SLA017 is 39.9mm
