    Don't be a fool. You have no idea the circumference of that person's wrist.

    Really depends on the person's wrist size....

    I've been wearing a Pebble, which has a 51mm body, so the 42mm will actually be a downsize, which I am glad about.

    Yeah, his wrist looks pretty small. Especially if that's his Rolex Submariner laying on the table. I can only see 4 links on the 12:00 side before the clasp. Using that as an indicator compared to the bracelet on my Sub, I'd put his wrist in the 6.5" or lower range. Pretty small for a guy.

    Yikes. I was thinking of going 42mm but maybe I better just go 38? My wrists are about 6.25" and I'm guessing this guy's wrist is probably somewhere around that, which is a very small dude wrist. :eek:

    That looks to be a pretty small wrist too. Probably 170mm. It's all about perspective. The wrist in the OP's post look tiny so obv the watch is gonna look massive

    This is the 42 on Ben Bajarin. Doesn't look massive to me.

    170 is small? I think I'm right around 180 and didn't think I had small wrists.

    Around 7" is pretty average.

    The picture ksuyen posted looks fine in comparison to the one you posted. I agree it looks massive in that but I think it's because it's on a really small wrist. The guy in his picture looked to have pretty thin build and it looked fine on him. I'm around 168mm and thats similar to how the cut outs looked on my wrist.

    I compared the actual size graphic (42mm) on the Apple Store app to a Pebble watch and it was basically exactly the same size. Wearing the Pebble - it's not too big AT ALL on my wrist. I'm not a huge guy by any means but i'm probably bigger than the average dude. It's gonna be a 42mm for me really without question. Will be ordering a 38mm for my wife along with mine.

    I am a pretty big guy, like muscular big 6'0 around 198lbs during summer at LOW body fat level like 8-9%. But i oddly have smaller wrists and ankles, never bothered to check. My forearms are massive compared to my wrist, i know its weird my forearms just get bigger but wrists stay the same lol. I like bigger watches so i was for sure going with the 42mm. Hell i wish they had some 45mm ones:cool:. After reading tonight i was fearing that many said even the 42mm looked small. I don't want to have something "dinky" looking so to speak.

    I collect Invicta diving watches and i have some in my collection that are 50mm plus!

    That's strange, 42mm looked just fine on my wrist (160mm, male.)
