What’s up guys? My name is Brock. You’re
watching The Modest Man and today we’re talking about some great watches for guys with a smaller wrist. Okay, if you clicked on this video, then you might have a smaller wrist, like I do. But if you’re not sure about your wrist size, it’s a good idea to measure. So, to measure your wrist, you just need a soft tape like a tailor’s tape. You can also just use a piece of string. Wrap it around your wrist and then measure that string. But you want to wrap it around at the widest part of your wrist, right over the bone, and then that’s your wrist measurement. So, my wrist is about six and a third inches around, that’s definitely on the slender side. I think anything under 7 inches could be considered small, but if you’re like six and a half inches or less, I would say that you should stick with smaller sized watches. Now, when we talk about watch size, we’re really talking about the case diameter. That’s the most important measurement. So, that’s just how big is the case without the lugs or the crown and a small watch could be considered anything that’s under 40mm in case diameter. I prefer like 38mm or less. I’ll definitely wear watches that are 36 or 34mm. I think those are great sizes if you have smaller wrists. If you have a smaller wrist, I think under 40mm is the way to go. So, I’ve asked a few of my fellow YouTubers and watch enthusiasts to share some of their favorite watches for smaller wrists, under 40 millimeters and then after we hear from them, I will share one of my favorite watches for guys with small wrists. These are great guys, who really know their stuff. So, if you haven’t already checked out their channels, definitely go do that. All right gentlemen, take it away. Hey gents, all feels right in the world when I have a small watch on my wrist. At 6’4″ and 170, I’m tall and slim, but with six and a quarter inch wrist, I like something that’s a little bit more subtle and elegant. I have videos on my channel, where I talk about my favorite watch in my collection, which is my 34mm Omega, which is a bumper model from the 50s. But if you can’t go with something that’s a little more vintage, I have two recommendations for modest wrists. Number 1 is from a company called Nordgreen. This is the Philosopher model. It’s 36mm only, 7.2mm thick. So, it has that really nice slim small profile, comes in at the $200 price point and it is designed by Jakob Wagner, who comes from Bang & Olufsen and he also has an exhibit in MoMA. It’s a quartz movement, but it is hackable and so not only do they have several different metals and sizes, but
they’re nice slim and sleek and much better than most other fashion brands I’ve come across. Number 2 is from the Internet’s favorite watch brand, which is Orient. This is their Stella model at 36mm. The list price is $350. It was $210 when I was doing this video. It’s 12.5mm thick, and it has an open heart displaying the F6T22 movement. So, it’s automatic, it’s hand whining and hack-able as well. There you have it gents, two excellent affordable and modest size watches for those wrists. Thank you Brock for letting me represent Tall Guys on The Modest Man. If you want to know about the best menswear on the Internet, regardless of height, come over to my channel at The Kavalier. Until next time gents, this is The Kavalier. What’s up fellas! My name is Barron,
and I run a men’s style website and YouTube channel called Effortless Gent. So my
favorite watch, in particular, for my small wrist is my Rolex DateJust 16030. Now, I know it’s not the most affordable watch, but I think if you can only have one really nice versatile watch, this is the way to go. The 16030 is a vintage model, this is in the early to mid 80s. It has a black dial that measures 36mm. I think that is the perfect size for smaller wrists. My wrist measures six-and-a-half inches around, and I think it fits perfectly. Although if I did have a bigger wrist, I wouldn’t say that this watch looks terrible on that either. I think it’s a really handsome watch, that will look good even if your wrist is 7 pushing 7.5 inches around. I think what I love most about this watch is the versatility. Now, I could wear it with jeans and a sweater on my days off, but I could also dress it up with a suit. The jubilee bracelet is a really nice touch and just that steel, all steel watch, with a black dial, it just looks really sharp. Ofcourse, many brands like Seiko, Citizen, etc. make watches that are very similar, very simple, steel bracelets with steel casing and a black dial. So, you don’t have to go the Rolex route, but I think if you are looking for something, that is vintage, that will last a long time, I think this is the way to go, and there are many resources online that you can check out, that you can actually buy a vintage Rolex for a relatively affordable price. All right fellows, I hope you like my suggestion. Thank you to Brock for having me in this roundup, and if you want to see more videos from me,
please check out my channel, Effortless Gent. What’s going on guys! Teddy Baldassare here, and a big thank you to Brock, for letting me come back on the channel. So, I have a youtube channel, talk all about wristwatches and really the whole goal of it is to create a new generation of watch lovers. So, if you want to learn more about watches, definitely go over there, subscribe, I’d really appreciate it. So, when thinking about watches for smaller wrists, this is something I’ve talked about a good amount. I wanted to pick a watch that I personally own and that is the Nomos Ahoi Neomatik. So, my wrist is 6.25 inches. So, definitely on the smaller side of things, and when I wear this watch, I really don’t get any overhang but the one thing you have to be cognizant of,
when you’re buying Nomis watches is the lugs are rather long. So, that 36mm, certainly is a little bit deceiving because this watch is going to wear more like a 38 to 40mm watch, with its lug to lug height, a thing that you really need to consider, it has a 45mm. And why I like this watch?
I think it has a clean minimalist aesthetic. On top of that, it has an in-house caliber
like I mentioned, and the 200 meters water resistance while not having a traditional diver bezel. Has all the specs of a diver, except does not have the bulky design that a lot of divers have. So, that is my choice here today. Thanks again to Brock for having me on, and hope to see you guys on my channel in the future. What’s up everybody! I’m Alessandro; and Brock, thank you so much for having me on your channel today. I’m the host of The Standard Wrist, a channel, where we talk about watches for small wrists and general watch talk. Lists, reviews, these kind of things. Today, I’m rocking one of my favorites Seiko 5s ever and that is the Seiko SNXS79K. This one has a 37mm case,
which suits my six inch wrist, no problem; and this has got to be the best looking dial for around $120. I mean, look at that gorgeous sunburst dial. This looks awesome in casual outfit or in a business environment. The supplied bracelet looks okay. Doesn’t feel all that great, but put this bad boy on a suede needle strap and boom! It looks the absolute business. I’ve been rocking this one at a Grand Seiko event and people were actually asking me about it. This is just how good it looks. You just can’t go wrong with this one
and if you want to check my review, just go to my channel, The Standard Wrists. In the meantime, thank you so much again Brock for having me, and guys, stay stylish and keep watching! What’s up YouTube! I am Christian from Theo and Harris. Thank You Brock, for having me on the channel. You asked me to bring my favorite conservatively sized watch; a watch that fits super well on a smaller wristed gentleman. But, since I own a thousand watches, that fit those criteria perfectly, I brought you three. Omega Seamaster, it may not look like it,
but this is an original classic sports watch. Great examples can be had between a $1,000 and $2,300, and they are some of my favorite watches. Next, a Cartier Tank Louie. Something that I get a disproportionate amount of use from, because I happen to love dressing up. But a watch like this definitely belongs in everyone’s collection. And finally Rolex’s DateJust. The watch that I’ve built my entire career and watches around. It measures in 36mm.
It wears extremely modern, beefy and substantial. I think it’s probably the perfect middle ground between old and new worlds. So, that’s it, those are my picks. Thank you so much for having me on. All right, thank you guys. So for me, one
of my favorite watches for smaller wrists is the Hamilton Field Officer Khaki Mechanical – kind of a mouthful. I think it’s usually just called the Hamilton Khaki Mechanical. It’s the manual wind diversion of this watch, so there’s an automatic version, but this version is a little bit thinner,
so I really like the size. It’s got a 38mm case diameter, which is a very universally flattering size. Even guys with bigger wrists, I think look really good wearing a 38mm watch. It’s a Swiss made watch, but it’s from a brand that was American originally, and it has a lot of cool history behind it, so if you care about heritage, Hamilton is a really cool brand. Since, I dress casually most days, I find myself wearing this watch at least a couple times a week, if not more. For the price, it really is one of the best everyday casual watches out there, especially if you like a mechanical watch as opposed to a quartz, and if you like that field watch kind of military aesthetic. This is about as big as I’ll go. I definitely wear smaller watches, like 34mm watches, and I would wear a smaller watch than that like a Cartier Tank or something. Now, if you love bigger watches, if you like that over-sized look then, you know, by all means, wear a bigger watch, but if you do have smaller wrists like I do, and you want something that’s gonna look proportionate on you, I would stick with something that’s like 38mm or smaller. I will link to this watch and all the other watches mentioned in this video, down below in the description. Thanks again to everybody who helped me make this video.
