These threads are always hilarious. Ive gone through my share of RO because of this issue and now have the 26315. It is absolutely ideal for my 6.3-6.5 inch wrist. The bracelet just hugs the wrist so perfectly. You have to find what works for you. For context, I have a 42mm speedy, 44mm panerai and usual rolex sports models at 40mm that I love and also think fit the intended “look” of that particular reference.

Bottom line, there is no right answer. Just what works for individual wrist shapes and sizes.

I have approx. 6.6" wrist and 37mm fit me perfectly, if you have 7.25" wrist, you will need 2 extra links.

6,6 inch and it is also fitting perfectly with my wrist.
After it will depend of your taste and the form of your wrist.
For me, a watch which is fitting well does not have extra space under the beginning of the strap and my wrist.
And with the strap in continuation with the case.
This criteria is achieved by my 15450, Daytona, 216570 in 42mm, Santos 100... So the diameter is not THE key.
What is sure is it can works, but unfortunately you will only know after trying it.

I got clients who come in asking for 41mm ROs.
They look like idiots with it on, I offer them the 37/38/39 options and they get offended.

If they want to look like they borrowed their dads watch so be it.

Wait until the 37mm ceramic model is introduced, then we'll hear the 'women only' tune change.

I honestly can’t believe this is debated. You don’t hear the same argument with shoes and pants. Wear what fits.

Amazingly, some fellow TRFer's seem to disagree with that premise

Thatís a marketing ploy by AP. Looking to expand more toward women. Rolex is still busy making 36 mm, donít hear anything from the crown about 36 is for women.

Hysterical. Meanwhile, every $200K and up Paul Newman Daytona is 37mm and who whines about that being too small.
