Too big for my wrist?

Tried this one on recently, considering a Panerai some time soon. Does it look too big on my 6 and three quarter inch wrist? Thanks!

Show us a shot from 5-6 feet away in a full length mirror. Close ups always make them look huge IMO.

I think it looks good. Like a Panerai, large.

Panerai by design and purpose is large. Here, there doesn’t seem to be lug overhang, so I think you’re probably good to go.

Once you get it and if it feels a little large, focus on thinner straps at first before working up to thick vintage ammo style straps.

If it were any other watch, then yes, it’s big on you. But it’s a Panerai, so that’s the style. Personally I wouldn’t wear one unless I had Schwarzenegger-like wrists. In the end it’s a personal style decision. If it fits your personal style, then own it and rock it!

Looks great.

I think a 127 would be nicer though, a 372 would be a good alternate to the 127.

No way, not for my wrist. If I pay for a bracelet or a strap, I want to see it when I look at the time.

I have a small wrist too and PAM watches seem too big for me. It looks okay if you like bigger watches.

Looks like how Panerais are supposed to look. I made a similar decision recently, and all I can so is do it, you won't regret it.

Looks perfect, just a matter of time when other timepieces will start seeming smaller!
