    I'm having last minute doubts! Which sizes are you MR ladies going with? I was originally thinking 38mm but then I changed to 42mm as I LOVE chunky watches and now I'm seeing some pictures of the 42mm on men's wrists and it might be TOO big. :eek:

    What are you going with?

    It depends on your wrist size, but I hear large watches on women are a trend lately.

    Of course after I see and try on the watch tomorrow I may change my mind but at this point I'm thinking the 38mm will be right for my small, thin wrist.....

    My wrist is 158mm. I have a few designer watches that are 42mm and look fine but they are round not square, so I'm a little concerned with it being square and just looking like a giant block. :p

    That's what I'm thinking too. I'm in between a 6" and 6.25" wrist and that's with some breathing room so it's not tight.

    My wrist is 160mm and I'm getting 42mm. I don't mind if it looks big on my wrist.

    My wrist are 185mm. I'm going with the 42 mm. I've been wearing the cut out for a few hours and it seems to be perfect. Both fit fine but it came down to usability. I think the larger screen will help with the icons. If my wrist were smaller(170mm or less) I would go with the 38 mm. It comes down to personal taste.
