All, this is a size comparison request. I know the 36 is the classic size but I’m a little concerned I will find it too small on my flat 6.75” wrist. I have both other watches listed here so would like to ask those of you with either watch as well as the DJ 36 to do a side-by-side comparison or wrist shots of both to help me get a better idea of how it would look on me.

I’m on the list for a Sub Date but who knows how long that could take – and I may actually sell the GS for the DJ and end up with the Sub, Speedy and DJ. Or some other combo of three from these brands.

Thanks in advance.

When I had a 7 1/8" wrist I wore 33mm dress watches and a 34mm Rolex 6694. Today I wear a 35mm Longines and Omega Connie.

There's a weird link hidden in the middle of your text, what's happening there?

I have owned four 36mm DJs a 40mm Sub Date and 39mm Sub no date. Interestingly the actual dial size is very similar to a 36mm DJ. The Sub has an extra 4mm of bezel. I prefer a 36-38mm on my wrist. Since 38mm isn’t produced by Rolex and very few others my first choice is 36mm. I have a 6.75” wrist.

Here’s the dimensions for Rolex. Note the crystal size of the Sub and 36mm DJ.

I don’t own all of these, but actually do have wrist shots in question. I have a 7” wrist that’s very flat on the top...49-50mm lug to lug is my absolute max, with 45-48mm my sweet spot.

DJ36, speedy, and 116610 sub. Don't have a snowflake to complete the request. My wrist is around 6.5, 6.75 when its hot and humid during summer. I wear the DJ the most so I'm used to 36mm, but it's no doubt small compare to today's "men's watch" standards.

Wanted to quote this because crystal size makes a huge difference in terms of how a watch looks visually.

A 40mm dress watch with thin bezel looks absolutely huge for me even if it wears comfortably.

As another point of reference, between the regular speedy at 42mm, and the FOIS at 39.5mm, I don't notice the difference in size visually at all because dial/crystal are (what I believe) to be the same diameter.

Our former Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd wears the same Connie as yours I believe.
I am really liking this watch. I wish it were a bit more practical so I can wear it in more situations.

I believe that you're correct. I think his was a half bar compared to the full bar I have.
