Does Watch Size Matter?

A watch size is only as good as how well it fits you.

Watch size

When it comes to watch size and fit, not all watches are going to look good on you. It is very important to consider this fact before you find yourself surprised and disappointed that your nice and perfect watch is not a perfect fit after all. It’s also important to know that no two watches are going to look the same on your wrist even if they are the same size.

Don’t be surprised.

Beyond style and price, watch size is probably the most important factor when buying a watch.It’s not how big the face is, it’s the profile, it is how the bracelet or strap fits and how it looks on your wrist.

Case Width

The indication of a watch size is how wide the case is. Depending on how thick your wrist is, 40mm may be too wide. Anything larger than that is ridiculous. A watch of 30mm for women are fine, but larger watches may feel overwhelming on the wrist.

A good indication of whether a watch is too big is to look at the lugs. Are reaching past the curve or your wrist? Then the watch may not fit right.

Case Thickness

Width is one thing, but case thickness on a watch can really affect how it sits on the wrist. The thicker the watch, the heavier it is. You need to know if you want a watch to fit under your sleeve cuff or how the lugs will comfortably fit around your wrist. In that case, a thicker watch may not be the way to go.

Bracelet/case Thickness

the average male wrist size is about 7.5 inches. Most watch bracelets and strap will fit everyone but if you fall into the extremes, be prepared for some extra costs. Buy extra links for the bracelet or opt for a longer strap. For a smaller wrist, you need to remove some links or making a new hole in the strap.
