Can't wear small-ish watches. Can't wear titanium either. I've had some big chunk-o-steel on my left wrist since Navy days. Small (sub-40mm) looks like I borrowed the wife's watch.. Ti feels like plastic. I'm just used to heavy.
This one was refined, elegant, a real "class" act. Really wanted to like it.
Found out I was NOT refined, elegant, or classy. Had to let it go. STILL miss it, one of the only "dressy" divers I've owned. Just too used to thick heavy tool divers.
Having said that, I have flat, 8" wrists and have worn watches from 36mm up to 44mm (not counting the Frogman, which is in a category all its own). Personally, I find 36mm to be dissatisfying small on me, and ended up selling that one. The smallest I presently have in my collection currently is 39mm, and most are in the 42-43mm range. But there are people who have argued with me that I'm just being faddish, that there is literally no reason to own a watch above 36mm. Except, there IS one: I don't like how it looks in proportion to my wrist.
Bottom line, it has to look right TO YOU. What someone else tells you that you're supposed to like because it's "classically sized" doesn't amount to a hill of beans. If it looks to you to be too small - or too big - then it probably is.

No, I am frightened of a 38mm or smaller.
I’ve got several small watches (36 & 38mm) and the Chris Ward C60 38mm is the only one that I think looks a bit small on me.

I regret selling a few of my oldies...Aquastar Benthos was the only small oldie I could wear as it was a thick piece..my wrist close to 9" left hand wear..

I have always enjoyed the 43-46mm heavy stuff, but just recently stepped down into (2) 42mm cased divers. They are growing on me.
