Sanded a 22mm Hirsch Pure to 21. I don't regret it.
Nah, that's just the nature of wrist shots taken like that. You can see the discrepancy below, one is taken directly and the other in a mirror. Looks like a totally different watch. Second one is how most people would see it.
Re: all the size comments, this guys got it right. If you want the technical reason, camera phones are super wide angle lenses (but cropped due to the small sensors). At short distances, the effects of lens compression (extreme lack there of) are super skewed.
Yeah, I ended up going with 400 grit and didn't even have to jump up to finer grains. You can't even tell that it was sanded, so I may experiment with this with some other rubber straps given how hard it is to find 21mm.Nice. I am wondering if the same can be done for the 22mm Hirsch Accent. Never thought about sanding it down. Might be a much better alternative to cutting.
"Female" in reference to watch sizing these days really just means "reasonable."He’s just on the edge. The lugs extend right to his wrist edges without overhang. Plus on bracelet it has female end links.
I feel like yes, pretty much anything that doesn't have intricate design that you're sanding in to. I just went slowly and used my caliper to get it right to 21mm. I'd say the biggest challenge is ensuring you're doing it evenly.Nice. I am wondering if the same can be done for the 22mm Hirsch Accent. Never thought about sanding it down.

When taking a wrist shot with a phone it’s better to use the zoom function (e.g. c. 20%) instead of moving the camera closer. Using a mirror is the best way, however.
Agree."Female" in reference to watch sizing these days really just means "reasonable."
IMO there's a point where regardless of the wrist size / watch size ratio, a watch can simply look too big. Larger than a PO 43.5 just looks big, but this size is super nice to me. Even if you have a mammoth wrist, having bracelet end links that are more flared out than what comes with the PO (the "female end links") just doesn't look like a good design.
I think Omega really did some stuff right with this. Short lugs, compact endlinks.
