Help assessing size

 
 By: Bob L. : September 23rd, 2022-04:21
With apologies, asking for a bit of honest advice. Smitten with this ceramic pilot’s chrono, but is its 44.5mm case simply too big for my wrist (maybe 6.75 inches). Thanks! ...  

I would recommend looking at it in a mirror perhaps 1 metre away.

Instead of close up

Perhaps like this?

It’s down to individual preference

I don’t mind wearing huge pilot watches since traditionally they were meant to be big. The black ceramic case makes your 3789-01 looks smaller too ...  

Looks fine to me!

Mixed feelings there, as there is no straight forward answer.

As such, the watch suits you pretty well, but you are probably used to wear smaller diameters. Diameters are really a matter of habits, I used to wear only 40/42+ mm watches (Seiko Monster, IWC Rattrapante), and then I suddenly got interested in vintage w... 

Looks good to me!

It certainly is true :black wears small.

I will have to agree also, it looks good on you.

And after all, it's a great looking watch. And I also agree that with pilot watches, the bigger the better. Size makes them fun to wear. I really like big watches, even as big as in my BIG PILOT at 46mm. It's big, of course, but makes a fantastic wrist st...  

Totally! Even close up wrist shot looks

Good! Like others said, black watches look smaller on the wrist.

Thanks everyone!

Really appreciate all the comments. It’s a big one for me, but it didn’t feel that big—perhaps because of the light weight and case color—when on the wrist. Thank you for the helpful notes.

Looks great to me!

Even up close, I think it looks fine. The photo with a bit of distance makes it look great! Go for it! BW, Chi Kai

Just went through the same dilemma

Hey Bob, Funny to see your post. I just went through the same dilemma between the ceramic chrono 44.5mm and the 41mm ceratanium. While the 41mm case is a little better for sizing it did not feel that much smaller. So I got the 44mm and it has been great. ...  

Perfect size for you

If it’s not too thick then that’s a keeper!
