Women with big wrist wears men size sports watch looks ok. But super small wrist like me (barely 5.1 inch), will look like I am wearing a clock and that is awful.
36mm is the maximum size I can take (already look like a mini clock on me), with lots of bracelet adjustments. Everytime I adjusted my bracelet, the dealer almost cried cos my wrist is soooo very tiny (kid's wrist) that he has to cut away even some permanent links. He cried everytime he dis that cos he pity the links.
Super tiny wrist people like me love big watches but due to our physical make up, many times we can only drool over "clocks" we would like to have on our wrists.
Frankly very small wrist is best suited with mid size like 31mm if we really want to go "big" size. The 36mm ones i wear at home cos already look like a mini clock.
Oh ladies size are meant for us super tiny wrists but then the face is so small that we will have problem looking at the time and date. So die die must at least get the mid size.
