Thread: Can a men's watch ever be cute or adorable?

  1. #1

    Can a men's watch ever be cute or adorable?

    This is less than 38mm and so is a diminutive men's model that is the smallest I care to strap to my 7.5 inch wrist. Been looking for one for quite a long time, as they are now scarce and HTF. Certainly paid too much for it, but am very happy with it's excellent condition and just think it is the cat's meow.

    Congrats on the find. That's a good looking 5.

    In no way too small. I regularly wear 34-36 mm watches on an 8inch wrist and feel 38mm is normally a very good size.

    Indeed, Nothing wrong with a smaller watch!

    I love the red bezel, and the size would be perfect for me at least... but then I'm one of those vintage weirdos who likes 35mm formal watches, so my opinion doesn't count for much.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Cute? Yes
    Sweet? Yup
    Beautiful? But of course.
    Cool? Most definitely
    Adorable? Not with these lips.

    But I like your Seiko - it's pretty nifty. Reminds me of some Olympic Seamaster.(can't remember the year) though that one surprised me because the bezel showed much darker in person than it appeared on line.
