5164a for small wrists?

Hi.

Im thinking of getting the 64a sometime this year.

How does it wear on smaller wrists? My wrists are about 6 1/3 inches.

For some background info, I can wear the SubC and 5711 comfortably.

Some wrist shots would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

If you can pull off the subc, the 5164 is no problem. Much lower profile. I am a 6.5 and have both.

May I ask what is your wrist size?

One thing is that you can only make the band so small as the double deployent clasp requires a minimum extension and otherwise will loose on the bottom of your wrist.

Should be no problem. I wear a 5167 on my 6.5 wrist. I tend to like my strap a little on the loose side and Ive got plenty of notches left if I ever wanted to go smaller. To me the lug to lug distance is key.

Just measured it for you: 15.8cm, or 6.22 inches. So smaller than yours.

Small wrist here. 16,8cm. I think the 5164 fits nicely.

I’m 6.5 and it works, maybe a tiny large for my liking. If you are 6.25 I’m stating the obvious that 5167 will be better

I know the 67 would be the better option for my wrists.

But that symmetrical dial on the 64a is really something else.

It's perfect on my 6.5". One of the best sized and most comfortable watches ever. And pure class.
