I've grown weary of all these posts who start off by saying "I know I have tiny/huge wrists, but....". I think people find a watch that they like and if they don't have a wrist that matches it perfectly, they assume that their wrists are huge, or tiny. I'd like all of your help in dispelling the myth of the "tiny/huge" wrists by participating in my poll. The best part of this poll is that most of you WILL have average wrists! |>

EDIT: with 101 responses to this survey, "Average" (mean) is officially a 6.97" wrist.

I'm with Ben (LesserBlackDog) and I'd bet the farm that we both have the tiniest *male* wrists. Mine's 6" in circumference or alternatively, 57mm across top of wrist.

Do the members at the extreme ends get any special prizes? Kudos? Just kidding.

I thought about this while making the survey and decided that it's impossible to -exactly- be 7.5. It must be 7.50000001 or 7.499999999. So just go with how you normally wear your watch. My thoughst are, if you like it looser, go for the higher category, but if you like a snug fit, go smaller.
What do I put if I'm exactly 7.5? 7.25-7.5 or 7.5-7.75?

Thanks for the response! I just posted the poll, so we should see a nice bell curve here soon.
I was quick! I've voted now.Oops too quick again. I voted the wrong one I think. I'm a 7.5 large. Also my right wrist is a friction bigger than my left which I wear my g shock on. So you can change it if you're gonna do some sort of graphic when this is all done.

I think I will make some sort of graph with standard deviations, etc. Hopefully we can get at least 100 votes here to make it meaningful.

6.75" to 7" here. I think my wrists are about average for a person of my weight. I'm sure in another 5 years once my metabolism stops working in overdrive they'll be larger.

Don't bet on it! I still have a watch that I got when I was 18, and now over 30 years later and about 25lb heavier it still fits just as it used to. None of my extra weight has gone to my 6.6" wrists.

Most of us will have an average wrist size...but that doesn't mean that certain watches aren't too small or too large for some wrists.
