    The Ideal Watch Size: A Curious Case of Misperception and Missed Opportunity

    If I can work out the start time I may well register for this, as for me, it is the biggest factor (no pun intended) when choosing a watch...

    That sounds like it will be an interesting talk. I might try and register myself. Thanks for posting!

    1AM GMT I think... I'm out.
    Hopefully they record it, I've seen a few interviews with Mark and he comes across well.

    Ha, that start time is a little off-putting there are replays available but it looks like a 2 month delay applies to non-members, which is a shame as anyone is free to watch live.

    I had forgotten about this, but as the two months for public release have now passed, if anyone is still interested and wanting to watch, link below:

    Great presentation. So yes... why do the major watch companies insist on producing progressively larger watches?

    The TLDR version is that a lot of people with broadly average sized wrists think they have small wrists because current watches a built to suit those with large wrists. Or at least, those with larger wrists appear to have the most choice. 38mm turned out to be a very popular choice, though few brands seem to have noticed.

    There are of course many questions you could ask about the methodology, given that it’s a self selecting sample of watch enthusiasts who have an interest in watch sizing. You could also argue that the 49% who thought they had small wrists are indeed in the bottom half, so perhaps they’re right.

    It really depends on size and stature as opposed to just wrist size. I would say 40mm is the ideal size for Sub/SD style watches, but at the same time have no problem wearing my 46 Big Pilot.
