I get to buy what you like but should more people think about the watch size-to-wrist size?

Not even based on measurements but just look at it on your wrist and ask yourself if it looks too big for you.

My skydweller doesn’t fit my wrist. Way too big and I can admit that. But I love the watch and the complication behind it so that’s the reason I brought it. I’ve considered trading it for something along the 40MM range but ehh not too sure yet.

Let’s see

Lug-to-lug is a more important measure to me than case size (I have a Zelos Hammerhead which is 44mm but has a L2L of 48mm so it doesn't overhang on the wrist and actually works)

It’s not just the wrist size, shape matters too. And different people will have different tastes for what looks too big/ too small. So that’s why we always tell people to go try the watches on before they consider ordering them online.

True but if the watches is stretching past your wrist on the top and bottom, I find it hard to imagine anyone saying that it’s not too big.

It’s true that a watch that’s more proportionate to wrist size looks aesthetically better, but if someone really likes a watch regardless of size and it brings them joy, who am I to judge? It’s not hurting or offending me - no need to get worked up about others’ watch choices. In general though, if the entire case including lugs don’t overhang flagrantly, it’s probably fine and wearable

Here you go…

This is my favorite fun summer watch. It was made in the early 70s. Its probably been polished or restored, but I love the feeling of wearing a 50 year old watch.

My dad is planning to have his Rolex Day-Date platinum serviced. He bought it 10 years ago. Retailer he bought it from is no longer in business/recognized by Rolex.

Any advice or insight on this or the process?

Seems straight forward, but tbh, I would rather take it to a Rolex service center (in NYC) instead of going through a retailer.
