Thread: Smallest and Largest Wrist Size?

  1. #1

    Smallest and Largest Wrist Size?

    Just a bit of fun, but who on the forum has the smallest, and who has the largest wrist size.

    My teeny wrist is 6.5 inches / 16.5 cm but I am sure there are smaller out there in the forum.

    What about largest wrist size?

    8.25 here, itís been a bit of a pain when buying preowned in the past. Have bought watches and had to wait weeks for links to arrive so I can wear the bloody things

    I must be at the bottom end of the scale, at 6". I used to think it was 6.5" due to using a metal tape measure, but the fabric one doesn't lie.

    I've finally had to admit that it's not 95% of watches in the world that are too large, it's my wrist that's slim. Luckily, there are plenty that work fine, from the 36mm Datejust, to AP 14790ST, to the 38mm Aqua Terra, and even the 16570 Explorer II (about the limit), via most vintage models. A lot of modern ones don't work though.

    I can assure you there is no relationship between wrist size and... anything else.

    I fall into the Ďnot a huge guy but 9 inch wristsí category. I can never try on a bracelet watch at a GTG as I canít get my hand through the opened bracelet unless itís got all the links fitted. Itís almost like an illusion tbh. Itís handy when you can buy a watch and just put it on without them removing links though!
    I often see the question Ďhow many links does a Submariner come withí? - well, if I canít get it over my hand itís missing a link!

    8 inches here.

    As I mainly buy vintage or used it can be a real pain having to source links after purchasing from a pencil wristed person.

    Normal sized straps will only buckle up on the second last hole which makes it difficult to use the keeper, I have to buy extra long straps or use NATOs.
    Cheers,

    I have 6 inch flat wrist and my biggest watch is a Seiko SKX007. Since wearing the Seiko, anything smaller really feels small.

    I received my CWC Mellor 72 and I was surprised how small it was, despite reading about it. With my slim wrist, I thought the nato may be an issue and was prepared for the getting the scissors out (and potentially messing up the strap). However, I think it looks great as is.

    I will however be researching further into single pass natos similar to the lovely but expensive Crown & Buckleís Chevron straps but from UK.

    Can't see 6" being beaten.

    I wouldn't mind your problem. So many cool vintage pieces that would fit like a modern watch. Even some not so old Pateks and the like.

    That is the silver lining, 36mm works well with some great vintage options. However 34mm doesnít work, it actually accentuates a slim wrist, while 38mm looks spot on. So unfortunately Iím not seeing any bargain priced Pateks!

    Iíve noticed quite a few modern NATOís are too short - never an issue before they became more mainstream, Iíve a couple where the tail is miles away from the second keeper, let alone tucking it under!
