If trying them on in a store isn't an option, do you have a printer? I print actual-size copies of most watches before buying. It obviously doesn't help judge thickness, but does give a good feel for the diameter and lug length.
Appreciate the responses! I had a bb41 at one point and feel like it’s a pretty unique line of watches in terms of wearability / thickness. We’ll likely end up going to the AD to try on, but are stuck with window shipping not given the quarantine...
First one is the 32mm, 2nd one 36mm. In the picture I had around a 5.3mm wrist, so depending on how big her wrist is and her style preferences, she could go either way. I went ahead with the 36mm but after while the 32 to me looked slightly better with my wrist size.
I think all the watches in the photos posted here look great on their respective wearers.
I'm not in a position to buy a Black Bay for the time being (considering it as a graduation gift to myself in a couple of years) but I've also been wondering about the size between the two. Obviously I need to go try them on at an AD, but I have a feeling that I'd prefer a 34mm size.
It's nice to see the OP line in such various sizes, should be a good choice, but considerably more expensive than the BB. Did she get it eventually?
