For me, it's a toss up between these two:

Six-point-five inches, which is below average, but not rare. Based on what I noticed over the years, a greater portion of customers averaged around 7 to 7.5 inch wrists. My PO did wear loose over last summer, as I found that even removing the half-link made it a tad tighter than I preferred. Now that it's winter, I get a better fit from it.
Is you PO the 45.5mm version?

Oh, no way. That would be asking for trouble. It's the 42mil model.
Wow! And here I always thought the 42mm version might be a bit off or unbalanced for my 6.5-inch wrist.

Come to think of it, isn't it only 90g. on the stock rubber strap? ... Great. Now I want one. I thank you. My wallet hates you though. :)

Mono, I would always recommend the 42mm to anyone with wrists up to 7 inches. Actually, at seven inches, you could go 42 or 45.5 mm without any problems.
However, when my store received the first of the new Cal 8500 Planet Oceans in 42mm, the extra height of this new model did make it look larger on my writs when I tried one on.
Nope, on a 6.5 inch wrist, the 42mil PO is a great size. The first Gen Cal2500 models even more so.

You have to help me on this one!

You know what my question will be?

Is this your mod? Did you place a new (8500) dial on the old PO?
From my profile here are the details of my favorite PO, these mods were done a few years ago when the LM LE was released because I wanted it in 45.5.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean - Black 45.5 custom 2200.50, with the dial and hands from the 222.18.46.20.01.001 (Diamond Bezel Planet Ocean) and the the bezel from the 222.30.46.20.01.001 (QOS Planet Ocean) white/blue lumed, black lacquer dialed 45.5 Planet Ocean with applied numerals and Omega script.

Cost was about $1,000 in parts and labor. Best decision ever!!!
