If you are a guy over the age of 14, and you ordered the 38mm, you made a mistake.

    EDIT: Added more photos where the strap is actually tightened. The bands in store are the largest possible size to allow trying on and can overlap the screen.

    ---------------------------------------

    38mm is sooooooo small. I have small wrists, and just tried the 42mm watch on here in Japan earlier tonight. See attached.

    You should cancel your order and place a new one for the 42mm, shown below. Even though it looks "huge" in the photo, the other one looks puny in person.

    You may say the 38mm is puny but that is clearly too big for your wrist. The strap hangs off the edge of your arm.....

    You guys act like people have never tried watches on before... That watch makes you look like you stole your dad's watch.

    That looks way to big for me. It dominates your wrist. But then again, it could just be the way it's come out in the photo.

    This.

    Especially at the bottom.

    Im 13, so 38mm is good. However age may not play a factor, you may just have big/wrists. I think the question is not "Is the screen too small?", but "Does the band fit properly?"

    Seriously. The photo is making exactly the opposite argument.

    I think he's being sarcastic. At least I hope so.

    If the 38mm was placed where the 42mm is it wouldn't look too bad if you ask me.

    Actually the band was too big and is therefore loose. The ones in the store have the largest available bands and can make the watch look oversized when placed on a small wrist, but they are not. More pictures below, I'm telling you the truth.

    The 38mm looked like a little square in the middle of my wrist. The fact that it was smaller than my wrist made it look even smaller.

    The 42mm fit perfectly. Here are some more pictures for the doubtful.

    ^^ That looks far too big IMO

    I hate big watches and all these photos just make me glad I ordered the 38mm one :)

    However, the small watch is been placed further up the arm, making it look smaller

    You should take pictures further away from your arm and not angled.

    Seriously people please get over it. Yeah we know 38mm is small and if you know watches we all know it small. For some people that works fine and they don't want a big watch on their wrists. Crazy how this forum site keeps calling the 38mm a girl size. By all means if you think ordering the 42mm is going to make you more of a man then by all means go for it...sheesh.

    I can only assume it looked very different in real life...

    I mean I know a lot of people reminisce about the calculator watches of the 80s but I went and looked those up and apparently they are approximately 33mm. If you want to keep telling yourself that the 38mm is small, go right ahead. The 42mm looks like you strapped a phone to your wrist.

    For the naïve that posted earlier in the thread, please see the additional posts where the watch band is fastened tightly. Thanks. Just trying to let you know so that you won't be disappointed.

    ----------

    You guys need to go try it on in person.

    It still looks too big for you. But whatever makes you happy.

    I read it several times and still can't figure out whether it's carefully constructed sarcasm or just a genuine muddle.

    Thanks for the pics, but that looks too big on your wrist to me.

    I find it amazing that so many people jump all over the OP for the 38mm looking huge, when he specifically said that the photos make it falsely appear that way (which is due to perspective issues with cameras at that distance). They then ignore the OPs, and many others, real life experiance with the actual watch who all have said the 38mm is too small.
    I've said it before, and I'll say it again... alot of people are going to be dissapointed with their choice of the 38mm on the 24th. Not me though, and obviously not the OP.
