    Default Is 46.8mm too big for my wrist?

    Been considering my first Jaeger reverso for quite some time. Tried on this 277.8.62 that is probably not in production anymore, but is 46.8mm too big for my wrist? With a 6.3 inch wrist, I've been wearing Pelagos for the past year - it's actually quite big for me, but perhaps the black dial and curve arc makes it still palatable for me.



    The blue reverso latitude is actually my dream watch, but I'm 10 years too late I guess

    Bros out there, any thoughts or advice?

    i do not think too "big".

    It looks too long across your wrist. I don't think you feel comfortable wearing it. It will slant here and there even you press tight it will only flatten your wrist meat for fact the watch too flat. Get better one square type with curvature shape

    Thanks all

    Yeah I think bro satch and ithg meant it's too long too. Grande taille probably better I guess. Let me pose another pic when I get home. The classique looks small in real life but in pic it kinda fits well. Hmm.. Although I've been told it's a woman watch.

    Here goes some pictures

    Considering between the grande taille, MC with date and Ultra Thin now..

    Its a tough choice!

    1) MC with date




    2) MC Ultra Thin



    3) Grand Taille on the left and Classique on the right.. As mentioned earlier, the classique looks fitting on my small 6.3 inch wrist but really small in real life!

    IMO, I find it too long and kind of difficult to wear as mentioned by some bros here.
    Just another small small small small watch user ....

    that 277.8.62 does look too long for your wrist..
    As for the rest, i think the Classique looks best out of the 4.
