There’s been much written about the “sweet spot” for watch sizes. Ten years ago, tastes skewed larger and the conventional median ranged between 40mm and 42mm. Today, things have widened a bit to include top UK replica watches down to around 38mm and perhaps even less. Why the drop in millimeters?
Reasons to Wear a Smaller Watch
It’s largely about comfort. You see, the way a watch sits on the wrist is hugely affected by its diameter, which is mostly what we mean when we refer to cheap Swiss fake watches’ size. But there’s more going on here: the way a watch wears has just as much to do with its thickness, also measured in millimeters; and its lug-to-lug length, literally measuring from the tip of one set of lugs to the other, has much to do with whether you want to take it off at the end of the day or sleep in it. And generally, a watch with a smaller diameter will also be slimmer and have a shorter lug-to-lug length, but there are exceptions, of course.
More options, changing trends
Here’s the other side of things, the one a lot of guys think about but don’t mention when they talk abstractly about small high quality replica watches: They probably haven’t seen said watch, taken it into their hands, and said, “But it’s so small!” Men wore them this small throughout the middle of the 20th century, and it’s doubtful that we’ve “moved on” from that size. Fashion is cyclical, after all, and part of the swing back toward more moderate sizes might be, in part, fatigue with perfect copy watches that are just too big — ergonomically or visually.
“We have seen smaller watches come back into vogue,” says CEO of online pre-owned watch retailer SwissWatchExpo, Eugene Tutunikov, “especially with a trend of vintage pieces being paired with streetwear. Vintage watches of course tend to be on the smaller side. So, we are seeing men look at watches more often that are 38mm and under.”
The truth is that any size between 35mm and 38mm offers plenty of legibility and simply looks good, even on a larger wrist. Sometimes even smaller ones do, too. Try on any of these “small” replica watches for sale, which we’re defining as 38mm in diameter and under, and you’ll see that a small watch might just be the best 1:1 super clone watches for you.
