Key Elements to Consider When Picking the Right Wristwatch Size

Whether it is swiss replica watches or original, it is imperative that you know how to choose the correct size for your wristwatch. For those who do not know much, they simply wear small watches or large watches according to the size of their wrist.

While it is generally true, you should at least know key elements to help you make an informed decision. Here are the key elements when choosing the correct size for your wrist:

Case diameter

The case diameter is the most blatant element of proportion. In most cases, men’s wristwatches range from 38 mm to 46 mm. Below 38 mm and it will look like a woman’s jewelry. Anything that is above threshold (46 mm) becomes too large.

If you want to know the size that works for you, it is crucial that you measure your wrist first. If there is no tape measure around, you can use a dollar bill to measure. US currencies are exactly 6 inches in length. You just simply wrap it around your wrist.

If your wrist is 6 to 7 inches, it indicates small to medium wrist size. For this size, the best diameter cases are 38 mm, 40 mm and 42 mm. However, if your wrist is 7.5 to 8 inches, it will be good to choose large cases with 44-46 mm diameters.

Case thickness

The next thing that you should consider is the case thickness. The case is correlated to the diameter of the case. Keep in mind that as the diameter of the case increases (or decreases), the thickness does as well. For instance, 38 mm to 42 mm diameter watches see around 7 mm thickness. If you have 44 mm diameter, the thickness will increase to around 9 mm.

Width of the band

The width of the band is also important when looking for a watch that is proportionate to your wrist. If you wear a 40 mm watch, the width of the band should be approximately 20 mm. If you prefer a wider width, you can also choose that.

Band material

After the width, you should move to the band material. There are different materials used. If you want a material that gives a slimmer look, you should choose leather bands. Metal material will always appear larger and heavier even if it has the same size as the leather band. Whatever your wrist size, the band material is important to consider.

Details and components

Finally, you should check the details and components of the watch from the numbers to hours and second hands. You should also consider the lug size changer and the pusher. As these components grow in size and thickness, it will give an illusion of a larger watch.
