    And Pussy Galore wearing a GMT-Master (as a fictional, lesbian pilot...) doesn't make it a fact that women (as a group) have been wearing men's watches since the 60s.

    I've seen several guys wearing ladies' watches - does that mean that it's a fact that small watches are the norm...?

    All your watches look too big for your wrist to me.

    :facepalm:

    you know just to name a few floyd mayweather is 5'7 and 150lbs?
    manny pacquiao is 5'6 and 145lbs?
    joe pesci is 5'4?
    they are way more manly than you can ever be? now you are going to throw low blows at me about my height, or go back on topic and talk about watches?
    and stop trying to dismiss my point about women wearing large watches because they had breast implants ... what does that have to do with them wearing a bigger watch than you and still look fashionable

    JV - if you want to wear larger watches and that makes you happy while in the infinite corridor, go ahead and enjoy. Do not worry about what anyone else says.

    My opinion - those watches are way too big for your wrists, height and weight have nothing to do with it, but if you are happy, go ahead, that is what life is about.

    Guys, please stop piling on JV, it seems almost like bullying.

    Just put a Toshi Strap on my DC56, and thought I would share!

    Oh, and as an aside... I have ~8 inch wrists, and 40mm is about as big as I am willing to go (the size of this Damasko). I think a little bit of wrist looks good. No need for the watch to take up every square bit possible. The argument about women's use of watches is kind of silly. Big jewelry, small jewelry--for women it goes in and out of vogue more often than any person can count.

    i had to comment - this JV insecurity big man watch thing has been the most interesting development of this thread yet. This is the first time where I've seen someone so clearly compensating for something they're uncomfortable with. A watch isn't going to make you grow 6 inches, and it's not emasculating to wear a smaller watch either. Its just a watch guys, get one that you feel comfortable with, wind it and wear it.

    late night online arguments sometimes do get out of hand, but to each their own.
    some people like it small some people like it big :lookaround:

    That looks enormous to me.
    Again, that looks quite big.
    "Small"??? Wow, either there is something going on with your photos or.... All 3 of your examples look quite over-sized to my eye, at least in these photos.
    +1 and +1.
    That color looks quite good Nc.

    the current trend is to have the watch face cover most of the wrist...
