How do you deal with such a big watch inside your shirt cuff? I can't even button some cuffs with my measly SMP in them...

I get the left cuff on my shirts .5" wider around to accommodate a watch.

I pretty much only wear my PAM casually, often with sleeves rolled up a bit. I wear my Datejust for work and am trying to decide whether to get a JLC Master Geo in gold to alternate with. Have a couple of cheaper beater watches just to mix things up.

i have tried that, but if it fits ovet the watch, it ends up falling to far on my wrist, or if its not big enough, its to tight. so im a roller. i miss my shirt cuff showing, but its ok. i make sacrifices for watches.

Looks really nice on the wrist. How do you feel about the size? What is your wrist size?
post #14815 of 31018
^Also interested in the wrist size!
That's the same strap? To my eye, the color of the strap on the second pic looks really really good.

Surprisingly, I am kind of a fan of the whole Tobacco look to the strap.

i love the size, i had tried it on before, so i knew i would. funny, i had never measured my wrist before, but after your post, i just did.

my wrist is 7.25/7.5 inches. my JLC hometime is also pretty big. i used to have a DJ (that i never should have sold ffffuuuu.gif ) that was 36mm, and it always felt a tad small.

Oh I just mean in general. For some reason or another, I am a huge sucker for black faced watches and tobacco, almost yellow straps. I just love the look of the two together. Also, you have a good wrist size for a 44mm watch. I think that 7.25-7.5" is about right. I am sitting at right about 7", and I worry sometimes that it may look a little bit too large on my wrist.
