Question and opinions on midsize watches ?

I recently acquired a midsize speed master and my dad wears a midsize yachtmaster we both have 8 inch wrists but love these size watches . Can one still take pride in owning a midsize watch ? Or does it take away from it because the smaller size? Or can you still take pride in the brand even though it's not the larger size

I like mid-size watches. I'm hoping they are making a comeback in popularity.

You need a 6.5 wrist for a 34MM. Go for a 40MM with an 8

I have 6 1/4 inch wrists so 36-38mm is my sweet spot. I can't really wear 40mm+ watches because they are too big. So midsize all the way!

When you worry about size of your watch, think about Tony Soprano and his 36 mm Day Date. Wear what you like and enjoy it!

wear what you like. Someone who has 8 inch wrists and is 5'5 the watch will probably look better than someone who has 7 inch wrists and is 6'5, so its not just about the wrist.

Your watch would look much better if worn above the wrist bone,and more comfortable on the wrist.

Do you like looking at the watch? If you do, what would a bigger piece do for you? It might enable others to see your big watch, but would you like looking at it more?

Its a seamaster. Not a speedmaster, sir.

Yes, its considered a bond since it was featured in the james bond movies (starring pierce brosnan).

Wear what you like but it looks small, to me, on your wrist. Same with items of clothing. Wear what you like but does it look the best for your size. If you are asking then you might see it also. Go try on the 41 mm Omega or the new 42 mm version and I think you will have your answer.

But I have always liked what I call regular size watches . Before the big craze from Invicta this was a regular size

It's always better to wear too small than too big. A midsize watch on an 8-inch wrist looks so much better than these behemoths people are wearing on their 6-inch wrist.

What I never realized is how popular this omega is . In two days I have caught people staring at it and then say nice bond. It's pretty cool.
