    Totally depends on style (optics-wise) and shape (comfort-wise). I'm quite sure that a 6,5" wrist can pull off a 44mm Panerai, for example.

    Thanks!

    You guys have a recommendation on a leather strapmaker? Plain, no particular style, but I'm interested in a honey color and want it in 19mm. Can't seem to find one by the usual makers and I don't want to commission a croc strap for this watch.

    Yes, this is mine. The reflection of the crystal is a real b!tch. Will use a circular polariser to bring out the contrast of the dial.
    Gorgeous. I love the simplicity.

    Very nice - we don't see enough pocket watches on here.

    I like the way it maintains a relatively clean design despite the extra features.

    Lowering the tone a little with a new watch for wearing with jeans. The Hirsch Medici strap cost nearly as much as the watch (Seiko 5 SKEN61) , but it looks so much better on leather:

    Thank you

    I like this a lot. Who's the maker?

    It is Rodina - Родина.

    The first soviet watch with auto movement. 1956-1960 years

    It was made on the first Moscow watches factory.

    Croc. The watch is a Tissot that I'm considering putting up for sale but I think it might look nice on a honey leather. I don't want to spend a ton on the strap.
