Guys with same size wrists (ish), opinions? Which size do you have?

I'm much closer to 150 which is pretty much perfect on me. Sounds like you could wear both. No chance to do a try-on?

My wrist is also 170mm and I think the 42mm watch is perfect. I don't think it looks even slightly large. I personally would not like the 38mm watch.

My wrist is about 170mm and going by the styling guide in the front page, thought I would get away with 38mm.
However, I went to an Apple Store and tried them on and thought the 38mm was tiny in me!!
I ended up going for the 42mm! (wish it would hurry up though!!)

i'm a male, have a 170mm wrist and i wear the 38mm Space Grey with BSB.
I love the size, but at this wrist size it simply comes down to personal preference!
Both are imo legitimate choices.
Only downside for men with the 38mm is the fact that there aren't any leatherloops available, at least at the moment.

I also have 170mm wrist size and wear the 42mm SS with Link. I did try on the 38mm but prefer the 42mm for screen size and overall size.
