You need to show this piece off in the TWAT thread, Coxy.
If you put that guy in a suit the watch would still wear just as large on him. Just the way that watch is. Whether we're the target audience is irrelevant to me. Whether the large watch look is popular or not is irrelevant to me. People out there are stupid and dress like slobs. I'm never going to support that or think that's a good thing. This is SF, most of us here know better. And Wright Watches is here on SF courting us. But, as you say, the watch is what it is. I...
Long time no see here, Kapp. Good to have you back
Looks like it wears large to me, certainly looks large on this photo despite what's been said. If the bezel were wider it would wear smaller, but any watch with a narrow bezel will always wear larger because it's all dial:You might be right, MSchapiro. As you've said before, there are some nice details on the watch - the price point, the enamel dial and the like. Not perfect but some good aspects as well, it must be said.
Again, dress watches are traditionally smaller than 40mm. Casual/sport watches are fine being 40mm and over, but the design of your dial clearly makes it a dress watch. It's still too big, it's all dial which will no doubt make it wear large (despite what you say). If you were to casual/sport the dial up a bit, then it would be less of a problem, but the design and sizing don't match. As such, the watch is a bit all over the place. Too large and too thick for a dress watch...
^ You're right, usc, 39mm is borderline but can still work depending on the watch.
The current trend is for oversized watches, but those such watches will look naff once that trend ends (as all fads do). If you want your dress watch to be timeless, at least in size, then it isn't just opinion per sé, but it's backed up by decades worth of dress watches that are the 'proper' size for that style of watch and fits the greatest amount of wrist sizes. Dress watches are meant to be subtle, small-ish, melt into the wrist practically. 38mm is really the largest...
You can see the case is too wide by how far in the date window is. It should be closer to the outer edge.
Your dress watches, Wright Watches, are too big at 40mm, despite what your copy says on your website. 36-38mm is the spot on size for dress watches today. 40mm and over is fine for dive and sport watches but not for dress watches. As regular SF user Mafoofan rightly says in the TWAT thread, 40mm is the size of the Submariner and you don't want your dress watch to be the same size as the Submariner (I'm paraphrasing). He's right there. Don't go along with the large watch...
Thanks for the article. A great shame it was lost to this country, though...
