Its worth the 2 hour trip to try out a watch you'll be spending $5000 on.Thanks for all of the replies everyone. As much as I would like to try one on the nearest AD to me is almost 2 hours. Which is also why I have had zero luck with a submariner. The PO appears much "blingier" in the pictures ya'll have posted. Have me rethinking the PO now 😁. If I do pick one up will most definitely be the 39.5. Tall case sizes don't bother much like a long L2L. I hate when it over hangs my wrist.
Why can't Tudor make a 40mm Pelagos?
Exactly… I drove 2hrs just to go see my AD and have my 3861 sized (he didn’t take enough links out). It’s always good to stop in anyways and checkout other watches.Its worth the 2 hour trip to try out a watch you'll be spending $5000 on.
Maybe its just my eyes or the camera angle but that Pelagos looks bigger on your wrist than the PO.here is pelagos vs 43.5mm po on a 7” wrist. I ended up going with the pelagos since there is no 42 anymore in PO. The 39.5 was too tall for the case size.
If the pelagos was too big, I’d recommend the black bay 58 or 39.5 PO. Ormaybe older 42mm since those wear smaller than the case size.

I agree. Same size wrist here. I think the thickness is more proportional on the 43.5mm and 45.5mm Planet Oceans.I have 6.75" wrists and while the 39.5 PO was good fit for me I felt it was too tall relative to the diameter and lug length- it seemed "squatty" if that makes sense. I ended up with a 42mm SMP and love it. YMMV of course!
