Yeah really, I can't find a watch with a leather band long enough to go around my wrist to save my life. I like pretty watches just like the next guy, but you'll never see one on my wrist for that very same reason. I measured my wrist tonight with one of those measuring tapes that tailors use. As it turns out, my left wrist measures 8.25 inches around. Is that too much to ask for from you watch makers?
