  1. Russian watches
    I recently picked up a pobeda red 12 on ebay, really like its simple design and its very lightweight and comfortable. However, it is quite small and the thin case makes it seem even smaller...my question to you guys is, what do you think about the sizing proportions? I'm a tall guy but have...

    Hey Folks -- New member here and curious if anyone has experience with Rado's 37mm Captain Cook in Black (not the limited edition - but I guess that's largely irrelevant since it's just the straps & dial that differ). It's a pretty high price point (~$1300 Joma) for a first watch, but I love...

    Hey Folks -- Buying my first "grown up" watch & seeking this amazing community's help! Been looking for ~2 months now, which should tell you I enjoy the research as much as the product. Issue is - I have a flat 6" wrist. Seems like lug-to-lug and lug curve is more important than case size -...

    *SOLD* Hi all. So I thought this was going to be a keeper but the size is just not quite right for my unfortunate wrist size. This is a beautiful example of a vintage small/mid-size dive watch from Seiko. Based on the serial number and condition, I think it's from 1991. To my eye it almost...
  6. Dive watches
    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...
  7. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hey everyone! Just picked myself up a vintage Benrus watch. I didn't get to see it in person before it was delivered to me and it's a little smaller than I thought, although I don't feel it's TOO small at least. What do you guys think of the size? ALSO do you guys have any idea exactly how old...

    I've traded services with a fellow watchmaker, had him fix my Speedmaster for free and he asked me if I could list some of his watches to help fund his wedding. Him being my mentor I said yes on the spot. All the watches I'll be posting over the next few days are his and were serviced within the...
  9. Affordable watches
    Considering a watch as a present for my GF's birthday, and wondered what people would suggest in smaller sizes, from an affordable standpoint? I have a Steinhart on the way and I like Spinnaker, but you don't see the smaller/"women's" size watches very often from these more affordable, yet still...
  10. Straps & Bracelets
    Hey guys, it's my first time posting in this particular subforum, so I apologize in advance if this has been covered. I did a search and didn't find anything. I picked up a Frederique Constant Classics Automatic (FC303MC4P6) which I'm a huge fan of. I didn't really like the stiffness of the...
  11. Seiko
    Hey all! Found a small, 32mm Seiko 2G28 quartz with a 14mm lug width I was wondering if this, in your opinion, was more of a midsize male watch or more female? ANY OPINIONS WELCOME! Seen here on my about 6.4 (I think??) inch wrist: And, yeah, I appreciate wearing what you want, but I need...

    My father found an old Citizen quartz dress watch today. He can't remember when he got it, but it was a gift. Judging by its size and around which hole in the strap it was worn, my mother may have been the most likely wearer of the piece. I like the design, but think it will look way too small...

    As a knuckle-dragging bulk, there are many watches (and clothes) I would love to wear, but cannot (without looking like an imbecile). There are a few guys here, I see who have smaller sized wrists. So I thought, I would turn my fashion problem, into a fashion solution for some? Rectangular...

    Most of the Citizen chronographs are sized 40mm+. My wrist is 6" at thinnest, and while I'm looking at this for my gym workouts, I would still like a watch that looks more proportional. I'm thinking 35mm is ideal. So, could you recommend some Eco-Drive models with these features CHronograph...

    SOLD. Hi WUS, I'm selling an Armida A11 (36mm including bezel) I just picked up on the 4th of July. It is in perfect condition because it's still within the month I bought it and worn only a few times. As for why I'm selling it so fast, I'm trying to thin my collection and I decided to keep a...

    Dear community, As a relatively new member (or at least a previously largely inactive one), I thought I'd make a contribution that will hopefully be of some use or interest to some of you. I've been relatively active on a popular Dutch wristwatch forum where I recently posted an article that I...

    Hello, I hope no one realizes that I've been asking so many questions about Speedmaster pros. I have a question about the clasp on the Speedy pro 3570.50. I'm in the market with a ~7 wrist it's been difficult to find a pre owned Speedmaster with a band to accommodate my wrist. Polished...

    The question is in the title. Can't seem to find a watch fitting those parameters anywhere. Small means < 41mm Affordable means < $500 Any ideas? Looking for my next watch. Any help is appreciated.

    I am a knife and gear nut just starting getting into automatic watches. I have tiny girly 5.7" or 14.5 cm wrists and I have set my mind on getting my first automatic watch. Started saving (and trying to sell some of my knives on various bladeforums). I'm used to taking off my somewhat beat-up...

    Hello, I am new to this forum so I hope this is in the proper area. I have been a long time fan of Victorinox watches due to the fact that they have been some of the best made watches that I can get that are in my price range (sadly I can't justify spending more then $250 on a watch at my...
