    My wrist is 180mm. I know from the sizing chart the Medium Leather Loop goes to 185mm, and the Large starts at 180mm. Will the large be too big for me, or the medium too small? Which size would be the best fit?

    Well if your wrist is 180mm, and the chart says medium fits up to 185mm wrists, then I don't think it take a genius to work out that the medium will fit you.

    Do you expect your wrist to grow? (Are you young or planning on hitting the gym or getting fat soon? ;) )

    I know the medium would fit, but with only 5mm to spare, would it be too tight?

    It fits up to 185mm wrists. It's not too tight on 185mm wrists.

    So yes it will definitely fit, you've 5mm spare!

    By comparison, 5mm=one notch on the sport band. I wear the S/M strap with one notch spare, i.e. exactly how you'd wear the medium leather loop. I'd never wear the M/L one.

    Thanks a bunch for the explanation! I'll definitely go for the medium one then.

    My wrist is 190mm. I originally bought the L Blue LL thinking it would be the correct size. It was HUGE. Returned it and got the M. Fits perfect with room to spare.

    My wrist measures 7.25" (184mm). I have a leather loop in size M. Fit is perfect. I had tried both in store and the L was waaayyyy too big.

    Same here. Same wrist size and band, and can't imagine more overlap, which is what you'd have with large. But when taking the watch off, I often have to "unloop" the band completely. But large would be too long.

    I have 180mm wrist and went with the large leather loop. I like the extra overlap that the large offers. Here's how it fits on me.
