    Hi everyone! I'm new to the watch community and recently bought my first mechanical watch. I've always been into smart watches/hybrid watches and found myself not using their functions enough and wanted something that feels more rewarding to look down at. As I was looking through watches, the...

    I was wondering what are your favorite vintage-sized watches that you can still buy new, or nearly-new, today? For example: Tudor Black Bay 58 Many Nomos examples Cartier Tank JLC Reverso What are your favorites?

    Hi all! I bought the Aquaracer 43mm this weekend and have been wondering if it is too big or not. I want a watch that blends in naturally. I tell myself maybe I should have bought the Hydroconquest 41mm instead...Cant return in because got it adjusted. What's your thoughts of the size of the...
  4. Omega
    Hi, designwise the current Omega Planet Ocean to me is the perfect watch. I love how it plays with the light, I love the numbers, die hands, the shape of the case. I think it is my dream watch… I tried it on many times and never bought it. The 43,5 is a chunky and hefty boy but I didn’t like...
  5. LACO
    Hello, I have just joined. Hope I am following the rules correctly. Laco offers its Pilot Watch Original (and its newer Flieger Pro) in various sizes from 39mm to 45mm. From the website pictures, it seems to me that their dials grow proportionally with size, and it is not just the bezel that...

    Can any of you identify this Illinois movement? Working on it for a friend and I need to source a new pallet fork or at least a pallet arbor. I have looked thru the listings on Rantfff and don't find anything that looks like it. SN 2689867, 1930's I believe. Wrist watch with sub-seconds at...

    I realize there is a trend to go with smaller cases. I usually like a 42mm chrono so I have a larger visible dial but my fav chrono is 40mm. What size is the sweet spot, especially for a chronograph?
  8. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I have this beautiful vintage piece - Favre-Leuba Sandow, it is from the time when they owned JLC so it should be technically reverso. Back in the days this size was okay for men to wear, but is it now? I feel like it is too small and more of a women size. But I still like to wear them. What is...

    [100+ names] I always found it useful to know the wrist size of a YouTuber or journalist when watching a review or reading an article, especially if it's a watch I'm interested in, as it gives me a better idea of how a watch might look on my wrist. So, whenever an author would state the size of...

    Compared to Europeans and Asians, do Americans prefer smaller-sized watches? I’ve lost count of the comments espousing 36-38mm watches (not always but often from my American cousins). This size range seems too small to me as someone from the other side of the pond. But fashions vary by...

    Hi everyone, I just wanted to inform everybody on how Timex sizes their watches. Timex is one of the very few companies that lists their watch case sizes with the crown included! So for instance their MK1 field watches are listed as 40mm when in reality they are 38mm with a 2mm crown! Just an...

    There are a lot of threads asking whether a given watch is too big, and then they are accompanied by a photo in which the camera is so close that the watch basically fills the whole frame. This is not how you or others will look at your watch! When you put the watch that close to the camera...

  16. Straps & Bracelets
    Hey there, I am looking to build up my strap collection because putting a new strap on a watch can completely change the feel of the watch making it feel like a new watch, so I figure, the more straps I have, the more watches I have :-d. I would prefer it if I could use every strap on every...

    Went browsing at a JLC boutique for a Reverso and here are some wrist shots to compare the sizes. My right wrist is 19cm, though probably rounder in shape rather than flatter. Hope this help anyone in the meantime :-). From top to bottom on wrist photos: Reverso Classic Medium Thin Q2548520...

    In response to the many "Is this too big for my wrist?" posts, I'd like to provide a thoughtful answer here. If you're even thinking about asking that question, then the answer is almost certainly: Yes, it's too big! That any part of your conscious (or unconscious) mind is motivating you...

    Hi All, I recently acquired a Sea Dweller 2017 (43mm), but seeing as I have 7 inch round wrists, I fear it might be too big for me o|o|o|o|. Thoughts?
  20. Seiko
    I know when it comes to watch size, it all comes down to personal preference but I'm hoping someone with a similar wrist size can give me feedback. 42 mm watches are just right for me and I haven't found anything I like better than SKX's and Monsters. However, I would like one big watch and cant...
