Hubby approves as I’ve just saved him £1k. He wanted me to have the 36mm

I've always been a fan of 36 or greater on women. It just has more presence. Its more legible too! Also, WHITE DIAL for sure!

You made the right choice..!
I can't stand humongous Rolex watches on the ladies..
I don't know how they can stand to wear them..way too weighty and masculine..

For a 7.25" wrist 36mm should be a good fit. Watch size is, however, a matter of taste.

31 or 34...36 is a bit too large IMO...that said, you have experience with 39 so youíll make the best decision once you consider how you plan to wear it.

31mm is more feminine (IMO you should get this), but sounds like you would be able to pull off the 36mm as well.

Is there a watch in that picture?

You could rock any actually, but I'd say the 31mm suits you better

My heart was always saying 31mm but hubby just wants me to have the biggest watch for my wrist that I can get away with. He’s not into watches at all.

The SA (who’s in her early 20’s) thought the 36mm filled my wrist better & is easier to resale if I needed to as it’s unisex. Of course the 36mm is more £££ than the 31mm. The 36mm to me looked more casual/sporty “of the moment”. It’s not much smaller than my Michael Kors. You could barely see the jubilee bracelet from the top as the dial/lugs filled all the space.

I just want a classy watch that ‘s practical to see the time & something I would wear equally with skinny jeans/t-shirt/blazer + heels or pop on a little black dress for date night & the watch isn’t screaming “look at my watch”.

I’m terrified to spend best part of £10k & make a mistake as I know resale values on ladies Rolex is dire ������
Only one thing matters in this; follow your heart!!! If you settle for something your heart doesn't long for you'll always want what you really wanted. Follow your heart!!! Congratulations on the new watch!!! I see you got what you wanted and it looks great!!!
