Thread: Pelagos on 6.5" Wrist

  1. #1

    Smile Pelagos on 6.5" Wrist

    What do you guys think? On the large side or just right on my wrist?

    I tried the watch on very briefly about a week ago. Very impressed with the look and feel.

    It seems like a great watch for the money and it looks great on your wrist. Go on and buy it!

    My honest opinion? I think the watch is on the large side; but still acceptable

    If the Pelagos wears big, you have to just bite the bullet and have a larger watch. I think it looks fine btw.

    The size looks fine and the watch looks awesome.

    It looks good on your wrist, and long sleeves always help balance out the proportions.

    Looks too big for me, as a former Pelagos owner, it does wear fairly big. 50mm L2L on a 6.5" wrist is a bit of a stretch.

    Have you got a picture from a longer distance?

    I think that we often think purely about the wrist and fail to consider the greater picture. My wrist is 6.5 - 6.75 and the whole of the rest of me is similarly lightweight (5'11 but only 160lbs). Some people have slender wrists on otherwise chunky arms, and on them a watch of this size and character will look good (whereas on me it would look silly)

    Looks okay to me,I have the same wrist size and find the pelagos to fit smaller than most 44mm Pams



    This is the max that I can handle on my wrist
