Not sure if this is the correct place to ask... but I've been browsing this site for a few weeks now as I am still seeking for a watch that truly speaks to me at a price range that I can afford at...

This is my current quartz watch at 43mm :roll:

Do you think it's too big or it is just nice for my wrist?

The question I have is how does it feel on your wrist. And what is your reaction the moment you look down at the watch. If both are positive then keep it and enjoy. Don't bother with whether others like the way it looks. They are not wearing it.

It will sound odd to a new enthusiast, but consider that not all 43mm watches are equal. The balance of the features will change the overall look and feel. The two watches I wear are both 43 and don't look identical in wrist scale.

*I do think lug overhang is a good starting indicator though.

AS FOR WHAT YOU ACTUALLY ASKED THOUGH, I think the pictured watch fits you, but is the limit.

Just an eyeballed opinion.

Lug overhang means it's just a touch too big imo.
+1 on that. That's the easiest way to tell if a watch doesn't look quite right on one's wrist.

Yes, you have to make the final call. From a visual perspective, it does appear to look a bit oversized on your wrist, but ultimately, it is how it wears, feels, and looks to you.

I think you're pushing the lug to lug, but it may be the photo perspective. I'd consider it too big for me if that's how it looks irl.

After everyone was talking about the lugs, I went to try it on, for the first time I actually feels that the watch was indeed to big!

I think if you are going to wear a slightly too large watch, wear it a bit floppy. Then it looks cool (to me)

The watch looks nice on your wrist. I have 6.5" wrist and I found that 41-42 mm watches are perfect for my wrist.

It is definitely too big.

There is no way a 6.5 wrist can wear a watch over 40mm, period, doesn't matter how "it wears". And that's pushing it.

That'd be the worst of both worlds in my opinion. Oversized watches look bad. Loosely worn watches look bad. Combine them for the worst possible effect.

But, to the OP, as always, it's your money and your wrist so do as you will, but if you're looking for honest advice, that watch you posted is too big for you.

+1 on the overhanging lugs meaning it's too big. I think something closer to 40mm would be better for you, but you must also keep in mind the lug-to-lug length.

It's wayyyyy too big, 39mm is the maximum size for any men's watch IMO, and dress watches should be around 33mm. Some time ago the largest watch you could find were 40mm, and people haven't really gotten 'manlier' so something must be wrong. Oversized watches (>40mm) look terrible on anyone, unless you've got a 9' wrist, which most don't.

It has been said. Too big, imo.
