There’s been much written about the “sweet spot” for watch sizes. Ten years ago, the conventional wisdom skewed between 40mm and 42mm. Today, things have widened a bit, to include perfect super clone watches down to around 38mm. Why the drop in millimeters?
I’d argue it’s largely about comfort. You see, the way a watch sits on the wrist is hugely affected by its diameter, which is mostly what we mean when we refer to a watch’s size. But there’s more going on here: the way AAA UK replica watches wears has just as much to do with its thickness, also measured in millimeters; and its lug-to-lug length, literally measuring from the tip of one set of lug to the other, has much to do with whether you want to take it off at the end of the day or sleep in it. And, generally, high quality super clone watches with a smaller diameter width will also be slimmer, and have a shorter lug-to-lug length.
There are exceptions, of course. But they don’t sway me, personally. I have what you’d call average-sized wrists, and I wear a 35.5mm vintage Zodiac Sea Wolf every day. It’s great. The crown doesn’t dig into my hand, and, when I camp, I wear it to sleep, no problem. Here’s the other side of things, the one I think a lot of guys think about but don’t mention, when they talk about why they don’t wear small cheap fake watches: No one has ever seen this watch, taken it into their hands, and said, “But it’s so small!” Men wore them this small throughout the middle of the 20th century, and I’m not buying that we’ve “moved on” from that size. Fashion is cyclical, after all.
The truth, I believe, is that any size between 35mm and 38mm offers plenty of size of legibility and simply looks good, even on a larger wrist. But don’t take my word for it. Try on any of these Swiss made super clone watches, all under 40mm in diameter, and you’ll see that a small watch might just be the best watch.
Breitling Navitimer Automatic 38 Super Clone Watches
Historically, Breitling has made some pretty big, complex-looking copy watches for sale, but lately, the brand seems to want to offer some toned-down options. One example is the time-only top super clone Breitling Navitimer 1 watches, which has the same basic look of the classic Navitimer chronograph, but in a smaller, simpler package.
