    I just had my try on appointment and I'm very glad I went with the 42mm. I was afraid all day it would be too big but I do not feel like it was. My wrist is in between 6"-6.25". If you got a small wrist I don't think you find this too big. Now with the sport band I felt that was a bit bulky. [​IMG]

    Got the 42mm. My Michael Kors watches are 45mm. I'm pumped.

    Awesome! I got the 42 also. I have larger wrists and like oversized jewelry

    Thanks for the info

    I ordered the 42 sport at 3:04am and when I tried it on thought it was too big? I have 175 mm wrist. What do you think?

    Actually, it is the sports band that can make it look that much larger. In my pic above the leather son the 42 sits right next to the skin giving it a much sleeker look.

    Tried on both and think both work well. I think the 42mm in sport as its lighter and the 38mm in SS as a more dressy watch. Have ordered both and see which I prefer to keep, or heaven forbid keep them both, similar hard decision trying to choose between the iPhone's last year....

    Both look ok. You could go with either.

    Little too large. 38mm is going to be optimum for the ladies, whereas 42mm is going to work better for the men.

    The 42 would work if you want the larger screen. I like the 38 better on your wrist, if you're going for a good screen to wrist ratio.

    It definitely seems that the sport strap + 42mm + smaller wrist is a bad combo. I know me so I'm not going with 42mm and I want the sports strap to be my primary band. I did just order a milanese because it has had such positive reviews and seems to help make the watch look smaller.

    What is your delivery date? Where do you live? Not sure how to coordinate a trade?

    I'd go with the 38mm.

    My wrists look similar to yours (I'm also female) - the two watches have a completely different look. I did a similar comparison. The 38 looks "neater" - more like a nice woman's watch. The 42 definitely has a "look at me" feel to it.

    In my case, in the end, although I appreciated the extra screen space of the 42, I went with the 38, felt more like a piece of jewelry to me, and is closer in size to my current Seamaster - though still a bit bigger than I am used to.

    4/24, bought at 12:03 am, silver with white band, SF Bay Area. Mail mvatlarge at Gmail and we'll coordinate? Simplest is to change shipping address on both orders. Or if color matters, keep the band but swap the watch. Will give you the difference in price, of course.

    my wrist is 170mm. The Apple rep told me immediately that the 38mm would be to small. So of course I had to prove him wrong. I tried it on, it fastened at the second to last hole loosely. I could've gotten a 38mm but then the rep asked if I wore glasses and made a very valid point so I stuck with my 42mm
    White is the smaller version. To me if they had been the same color band, with my glasses off I wouldn't be able to tell the difference in this pic.
