    I have a quick question for anyone who has looked at the vogue ads; everyone keeps saying they are life size...does this mean "actual size"?

    because I cut them out to see what size I should get but they seem too big. They are the right width across, but the sizing is supposed to be the height.

    One website showed a ruler by the watch, but again, its not supposed to be width, rather height, so the vogue ads are not "actual size".... right?

    THIS IS NOT MY PICTURE, this picture comes from 9to5mac.com

    They're sizing it differently for some reason.

    That's just it! that picture is from 9to5mac.com...and every other site keeps reporting how the ads were life size, so the first thing i did was tear them out and cut the watches out so i could try to decide what size to get.

    but the 42 is huge on my wrist, huge! when I measured them i realized that they are too big, not actual size according to a 38mm or 42mm height.

    but no one else has seemed to notice, or i just thought life size was "actual size" and maybe I AM an idiot.

    Do you have a copy of the vogue magazine?

    Any chance you could take a photo next to a ruler?

    Shouldn't you be measuring from top to bottom?

    I guess so

    That is probably the reason why nobody has noticed the size difference

    I still cannot help but wonder if I am alone in cutting out the ads and trying them on for reference purposes, did no one else to do this?
