This is also my wrist size....

I wouldnt say is too big for my wrist though, at least for what I remember when I tried it out in the presentation last year

I dont look seriously at 5990 and 59801r, two Id love to own.
Similar sized wrist and I made this mistake with the 5990. 5711 and 5712 are the way to go for myself. 5968A doesn't aesthetically appeal to me, and size is out of the question, so no chase for me!

The Aquanaut rubber straps flare out quite a bit and wear big, hence I have never considered the Aquanuat on strap given my 6.5 wrist.

actually i had the 5980AR and felt it fit perfectly. the 5968A is bigger though.

The 5968A looks so great no one will be looking at the ratio and proportions to your wrist. It's a GREAT piece!

Oh I thought the bangles had some great hits back in the days

And the ninja likes beads just as much as you, but he uses them in a different way, no wonder his Mrs walks around with a 5990

nice, congrats. I prefer on the orange strap but not exactly subtle with that strap. My AD said I would be competing with customers that bought minute repeaters and there is no way I could get one :(

Thanks!

Was quite surprised when received the call, didnt even remember what watch AD was talking about ��

I had the 5164a, this one has more presence and pop up much more even with black strap, but still does not feel huge on the wrist
