Hello everyone....

I know there is a fashion statement in wearing a large or small watch. Some say " only a large watch looks good on my wrist" while others say " Only a small watch".....

Well for your consideration.

I took this photo some years ago to how size comparison to other vintage Omegas..... Each of the watch below are at lest 40 mm in diameter.....





I do not wear all 4 watches at one in public. I had to make that statement....

Now for comparison

Here is a single 33 mm diameter wristwatch on the same arm...






i think they all look good on my wrist.


But what do you like to wear ?

Good Hunting

On the other side, 47mm is the biggest I have.

Here's the 47mm PAM249:



I find that the 127 at 47mm 'wears' a little different:



Others are 39mm (IWC GST Chrono-Auto), 42.3mm (Portuguese, but it wears bigger), 42.5 (IWC Ingenieur), 44 & 45mm Panerai, and the Seiko Monsters and Samurai!!!

I agree with you. I have a British Army Officer's watch from the early 1940's that has a dial about the size of a nickel. That watch is in the regular rotation, and gets a lot of attention just because of its size and how good it looks. I also have a couple of monsters, and others in between, from a Seamaster to a Jaeger Master to a Ken Trading special to some vintage pieces in great shape measuring around 37 mm.

I wear them all. The best size for me is 39 to 41 mm

Although I only go from my 47mm to 40mm, I hear people say all of the time thay can only wear 47mm watches. I still really like my Sea Dweller, even after a day of wearing my 1950.
