    I am asking once again for opinion on which size to go with. I printed out new cutouts and taped up the straps to get a better feel of them. What do you guys think? 38 or 42?
    Here is 38mm:

    might want to wait and try the real thing, as an actual apple watch won't be paper thin.

    It looks like your wrist is large enough to pull off the 42, but you should try on both before ordering.

    I actually put cardboard under them; so it gives a little more of a realistic feel.

    Both are alright but I prefer 38. Doesn't stand out much which is a good thing in my book.

    I think the 38mm looks better on you. Personally, I'm not a fan of giant watch faces though so I may be biased.

    This thread has made me laugh out loud. I'm so glad that there's someone else out there who's as nuts as I am.

    I am so confused about which size to get. I live nowhere near an Apple Store so I'm not sure I can try before I buy.

    I'm currently leaning towards 42mm. Hopefully I could send it back and get a 38mm if I hate it.

    Carve it out of soap for a realistic shape. Just remember that the real thing doesnt smell this nice.
