WS for Friday 28th: Big or Small. Does Size really matter? Open Now!

May 28, 2021,12:32 PM

Hello dear friends!

As announced last Wednesday the Theme asks our participants to share their feelings and preferences about case sizes.

In the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s men’s watches were generally offered with cases ranging around 34 to 36 mm maximum.

I can well remember the faces of my work companions and their jokes in September 1966 when I arrived to the office one morning proudly wearing for first time my 40 mm 5513 Submariner which my parents had presented me for my 18th birthday.

They had never seen such a big and thick watch, much less with that “funny” rotating bezel which every one wanted to know how it was used for.

Things changed a lot during following decades and as clothing and customs changed the trend for all Watch Brands was to keep offering larger and larger cases which made the 40 mm case of my Sub look small.

Brands like Panerai or IWC have big cases of 47 or 45 mm as part of their DNA but most traditional brands presently offer cases ranging from 42 through 45 mm.

I personally feel comfortable with watches in the 40 mm to 42 mm range (except for Panerai which I love to wear in spite their 47mm size) but I also enjoy wearing vintage watches like my old Omegas or Bubblebacks which sport cases of 34 to 36 mm.

I cordially invite participants to share shots of they bigger and smallest watches and briefly explain their preferences about case sizes.

As usual you may submit photographs for our traditional three Categories:

Best Wrist Shot

Best Static Shot

Best Watch of the Week

You may begin posting in this same thread right now!



Extremes: The little 33 mm steel case of this charming Ariston chronograph from the 1940’s is dwarfed by the traditional 47 mm case of the Luminor Panerai Marina Militare. I enjoy wearing both in spite of differences in size and purpose of these watches.

More shots to be posted later.

My dear Abel, Even though I do not routinely participate in wrist scan I always look forward to your contribution.

You have a marvelous and world-class collection my dear friend. It never ceases to amaze me. Que le vaya bien amigo. Tony

Hello my dear Tony!! You are always so kind

Hey, dear Abel !.. You did it again : what a nice line-up of Biggies and smalls !.. You‘ve successfully inundated us with attractive shots and tic-tacs !

Hello my dear friend HS! Ha ha ha!! You say well my dear HS: as customary I tend to inundate my fellow members with the flow of shots and tic tacs! Ha ha ha!

The Radiomir shot: it is reference 687 with a degradee brown dial, it looks almost yellow in the center under some sunlight angles. The mirror surface was the roof of a dark color car in a parking lot! Lol! I tried to capture the reflex of some palm trees... 

Even if I repeat myself.. Thx so much for your kind & interesting comments to your watches and type of photography !.. it is interesting to share conceptual thinking regarding watches !

I‘m always curious, when I open your posts, what will I be happy to see each time ! Have a great upcoming week, yourself ! Cheers !!

I thank you again for your always so kind comments and compliments to me and my collection my dear friend. It is a big compliment what you tell me and I appreciate that so much.

 By: Subexplorer : May 30th, 2021-16:49
It is true, I also open your posts like meeting a good old friend and wishing to see what nice surprises you bring with shots and tic tacs. I´m happy to find your entries and I wish some day we will have the pleasure of a real meeting and chatting in pers... 

Superb selection as always, Abel!

Especially the contrast shots are great! Wasn’t aware that you had such an extensive Bubbleback collection, though 👏🏻👍🏻

Thank you so much for your kind coments dear KM! I´m happy to know you liked these shots. I started my collecting journey with old and less known brands of chronographs and Bubblebacks...

 By: Subexplorer : May 30th, 2021-13:49
... and considering my love for the Rolex brand these little watches fascinated me. I feel they are a jewel which still don´t receive the attention they deserve among Rolex collectors. Have a nice Sunday my dear friend! Abel

The sound is great

 By: mhz vph : May 31st, 2021-04:02
It's a loud watch, relatively speaking. Sounds like a little machine gun next to your ear. And it has been very accurate during practical use. Hopefully one day I will find a genuine example!

Sadly not luminous...

 By: mhz vph : May 28th, 2021-23:10
If it were I would be more than happy to provide the lume shot

Two good choices !

True that…

My big pleasure Sfwatchlover. I´m happy to know you liked the theme I choose enough to inspire you to participate for your first time. I wish you will keep participating in future editions as well.

Size doesn't matter, most of the time

 By: rremiker : May 29th, 2021-00:41
Normally I would not give much thought to buying or owning a 37MM watch, conventionally believing 37MM to be too small. However, I am so thrilled to own this rare Zenith A3818 “ Cover Girl” Revival. She wears perfectly! ...

Zenith looks cool 😎

I am really impressed that Zenith resisted the urge to supersize these!

And they wear like a charm as a result. Great piece 👌🏻

Thanks a lot for the kind words, Abel!

 By: KMII : May 30th, 2021-12:23
While I definitely tend towards the 40mm and less part there are always some exceptions, which can be great fun, too 👍🏻

My pleasure always dear KM! Yes, we have preferences in sizes of course but it is good to broaden our horizons to try some exceptions both over and under our own standards.

 By: Subexplorer : May 30th, 2021-13:51

What’s the case depth ?

This is a difficult question…

 By: KMII : May 30th, 2021-12:26
I will explain. The official height is 14,4 mm (and due to the titanium case it’s quite comfortable). But it has a curved case back and depending on whether you use the time or timing side up the height will vary, as it’s asymmetric in terms of thickness ... 

Perfect sense ....

Case size together with the lug design determine how a watch wears on the wrist. 30mm - used to be smaller as you said.... 36mm 38mm. With Breguet's lug design, something upto 38mm in its Tradition and Classique series works better for me. 42mm. Not too b...
