I'm thinking about this watch. Here's another picture.

I'mm not sure if it would be too big (case diameter is 40)?

Any other suggestions are welcome too, thanks

Thanks! I think it's really elegant and stylish, but I don't know if it'll be too vulgar?

I don't think it looks vulgar, though it might look odd. How big is your wrist?

40" is a standard size for a wrist watch. Anything smaller would look like a unisex or female watch. I have really thin wrists but 40" even then is still a good size. As it has a really slim profile (8mm) it should be perfect.

As for the watch itself, it is a solid quartz movement by the looks of things, but it has basically no water resistance. Literally washing your hands and not much else. Also, remember that if you're buying off teh internetz you will need to get it adjusted for your wrist size after purchasing it. You may want to buy an adjuster of Amazon itself (like a gun thing, which pushes a needle in to the bracket so you can adjust it yourself - REALLY easy to use), and they're only £5ish - most jewellers charge £10 to adjust wrist watches.

I don't think it looks vulgar at all. Imo, it looks stylish and sleek.

Considering it's quite a simple style I think it can pull off its size, it's not too big anyway. It looks sleek

I think it is quite a sleak looking watch. Regarding the size, 40mm will look quite big with this design as the face is large in respect to the case. I have a similar wacth that is 39mm:



This does not look overly big, so an extra 1mm should be ok.

I think my wrist is slightly smaller than yours, but it should be fine nevertheless - thanks for the picture
