Big Pilot and Small 6.5" Wrist?

Recommended Posts

 

Pardon if I can find this info elsewhere. I used to remember there being an effective Google search bar on this site, but it seems to not exist anymore.

I am considering buying either a Pilot Chrono 3777 or a Big Pilot later this year. I have some skinny ass wrists at 6.5". I think the BP will be too big for me, but it just looks so nice and bad ass that I want it. I currently only have one watch - an Omega SMP 2254.50, which I think is 41mm.

Do any guys out there own a BP and have a small wrist? My head is telling me to settle for the Pilot Chrono as it's still a big watch but will fit me better.

I dont have BP but I do have Mark XVI(Dia. 39mm). It fits perfectly on my 7(177mm) wrist.

But, I dont think I can wear bigger watch than this. Otherwise, it will lose balance and look silly.

 

If you think it is too big then probably it is too big.

yeah looking at that thread that was linked above the BP is not one of those watches that can be worn on smaller wrists, personal opinion of course but to me those pics in that thread look like a 7 year old has stolen daddy's watch. You either have the wrist size for it or not, shame though i think the watch is stunning but my 6.75" wrist wouldn't take it.

I have a 7" flat wrist and recently tried on a BP at a couple of ADs. I think the watch actually looked ok but it still felt big. I don't think I would have been comfortable wearing the watch, and this is coming from someone with a 44mm and 45mm Panerai. The Big Pilot certainly lives up to its name. I doubt it would work on your 6.5" wrist.

I've got 7"1/4 inch wrists and my BP is on the border line of wearability and comfort. I feel that as long as the width of the wrist is not smaller than the watch's length lug to lug it's all right.

In the end the beauty of the object has to be balanced by wearability.
