    Cheap as chips 36mm watch

    Given Rolex have moved the explorer to 36mm, trying to find a 36mm watch for my wife to try & understand the size.

    Ordered one from Amazon, but that ended up being including the crown, so useless.

    Donít want to be spending much at all, as itís just a size thing. So no Smiths etc, as feel it is going to be too small.

    A friend is happy to lend me a 36mm DJ for her to try, so that will work I guess, just prefer her to wear it for a while to make sure on the size.

    You were right about the Timex BTW.. It's less than 35mm as seen on the third photo... https://www.watchuseek.com/threads/t...58300.5291777/

    Sorry about that, never crossed my mind they would measure it including
    the crown!

    Thanks both, a few options bouncing around now. Clearly an abundance there vs the lack of a 39mm explorer lol, well not lol, more anger!

    Yea, the Alpha is the obvious choice... Not sure what this is but it oddly looks good to me https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Seiko-36m...75.c101224.m-1
