    I definitely thought the 42 would be too big, but after I printed it and cut it out, the 42 was perfect. The 38 really felt small, and I have thin wrists.

    Many people will be surprised how small the 42mm watch will look once strapped on.

    Also a watch under 11mm is not too thick either

    On the apple store app there is a option that will present you the actual size of the watch on screen.

    42mm it's nothing on the wrist

    Yeah, it's not that bad. As written in Hodinkee's first hands-on review:

    I did print them out. I don't think it will be a good indication though, due to weight, thickness, etc. I tried on a Moto 360 which looked way too big on me. I think I'm going 38

    ... or find a friend with a 3D printer!

    We've all seen plenty of photos (apple.com and hands-on galleries)... but I think a lot of you will be surprised at how small these watches actually are. I was.

    38mm = WHITE
    42mm = BLACK

    My wrist size is 6.5 inches = ~165mm

    38mm looks sexy, 42mm looks like a smartwatch. At least on your wrist in those print outs.

    Could you please show a picture of an overhead view (same angle as top left pic) with just the 42mm in the spot you would actually wear it, and then just the 38mm in the spot you would actually wear it?

    Thank you for sharing these!

    Thanks for sharing. My wrist is about 184 mm. I'm leaning towards the 38 mm watch. Now I'm not sure.

    My wrist size is 170mm

    I'm going 38mm because of the way the band comes out of the case (angled) is going to add extra size the overall size, meaning the 42mm with the band will come like gapped looking like a lady jewerly bracelet and moving around your wrist (like a running sport band)..

    How do you get to the on wrist view?
    I see only the cases/displays.

    Yup, I thought I was going 38 until I printed them out. 38 is tiny, 42 it is.

    Store » Select the watch you want (AW Sport; AW; AW Edition) scroll down to bottom of page (there you can pick 38 or 42 and see how it looks in the wrist pic)

    Thanks for sharing. I've a 165mm wrist, too, so this is just perfect. I came to the opposite conclusion, though. It's all down to personal taste, but to me, the 42mm one looks huge and chunky on your wrist -- much more so than the paper cut-out from the other thread. It really helps to see the thickness. I'm going with the 38mm.

    Thanks for the pics but I still have to see these in person. I love watches and I have one for every occasion so I want the size that'll be universal. My wrist is 160mm and If the 42 is similar to the original pebble, which I have, I'll have to go for the 38.

    Yes, there doesn't seem to be a significant difference between the two sizes.
    For me, the question would be is the extra real estate (on the 42 mm) worth the $50 difference. Or, better yet, what are the advantages of having the larger screen?

    My wrists are pretty thin, around 150mm. Printed them out, and added the 10.5mm thickness with cardboard. I'm a guy, and I like the look of the larger 42. It looks perfect.
    The only issue is I want the milanese loop, and that fits a minimum wrist of 150mm. I'm right on the line! So it might not fit... Don't know what to do. Any advice?

    Slightly larger battery.

    ----------

    I just looked up the top 5 best selling Rolex watches of all time and none of them were under 12mm, in fact most of them were 13mm.
