I comfortably wear my Citizen, a 42mm, and find myself needing another one ;-). Got my eye on Blue Angels models which measure out at 46mm according to the specs. Wrist photo of the 42mm attached.

What's the consensus - is a 46mm going to be too big for my wrist?

If the watch in the pic is 42mm, then I reckon you'd probably be okay with 46. It'd be hilariously too big for me but you ought to be able to wear it.

it think it'll be fine too. 4mm isnt going to be that much bigger.

You should measure lug-to-lug as well. Case diameter alone doesn't mean much. Right now you can do 46mm (if the crown isn't radically larger) but if lug-to-lug is more than 5mm on the plus size I'd recommend against.

If you have doubts now, you better just go try one on and see.

And that's exactly what I did! Went to local mall, found a jewelry shop that carries Citizen. I was able to try on a Navihawk, which is actually a tad bigger than the Blue Angels. End result - I like it!

Now my problem was (you'll see why I said that in past tense in a moment), should I get a Black Eagle or a Blue Angels? I really like them both & was struggling with the decision. (By now you probably have a clue what happened, right?)

Got on ebay, saw a bunch of auctions/buy-it-now listings, one for a Black Eagle, one for a Blue...pulled the trigger. :-d

The Blue is coming from Jomashop. I hesitated a lot about buying from them, read tons, but decided the price was so good I couldn't resist. The Black was a private seller, I put in a max bid, and to be honest I expected to *not* get it...but, hah! I got it.

Man, gotta get hold of myself...:)
