    Photos of 34mm watch on +/- 8in wrist please

    Iím sure itís been done but couldnít find any suitable photos.
    I really fancy a Tudor Prince or similar, most of the models I prefer are 34mm case size. I have an 8 inch wrist and although I love small watches - Iíve never had 34mm watch. Will it be pushing it a bit in terms of size?
    If you have a wrist shot of a 34mm Tudor - please do share. I think lug to lug is 43mm on these 34mm models.
    Thanks!

    I feel like that might be pushing it potentially.

    I had a 1959 Smiths Deluxe in just under 35mm and I couldn't get away with it as much as I loved the watch.

    My wrists are 7.5", I can wear a 36mm oyster perpetual but that's the minimum in my opinion of course.

    Would you mind sharing a photo of the 36 OP please?

    My wrists are eight inches, all images are of 34mm watches.

    I have a flat eight inch wrist ,and to my mind anything less than 38 mm is a bit small.

    It looks great to me.

    Another thing is the lug to lug. My GS is 37mm case with 44mm lug to lug. The 34mm Tudors are 43-44mm lug to lug (apparently, descriptions vary), so Iím thinking it might be ok?

    It is important to also consider the lug to lug not just the width.

    Ive asked for similar pics of various watches on wrists too.

    The only trouble is! Even if your wrist is the same size as somebody else! All wrists are different...added to that, In photos I think the actual watch itself...ALWAYS! look bigger than they actually are...Ive bought a watch or two...which I "thought" looked big enough for me (in photos on a similar sized wrist).........when it arrived...I didnt like the "size" of it on my wrist....so it got flipped!

    There is no better way, than physically trying on the watch...which I know isnt always possible/practical!

    As boring_sandwich said lug to lug size is just as important, as you can see in the photo below
    the Seiko Tuna is 48mm and the Rolex is 39mm that's almost a 1cm difference but can you
    See that in the photo , not really

    The Tuna has no lugs though! :-)

    That's interesting, difference looks fairly negligible. I would expect the Tuna to look vastly bigger

    The size of the dial itself in relation to the case size also adds to the visual confusion.

    Absolutely.

    Watches with little or no bezel usually wear bigger than those with substantial bezels.

    Close up wrist shots can be very deceiving, and may give the wrong impression of actual size.

    Also, wrist circumference has less to do with appearance than the actual shape of your wrist. The width of the top of your wrist is a better indicator.

    Quite, OP would be better off printing a watch face and placing on his wrist.

    Some websites let you visualise a watch on your wrist.
