The watch you had resized looks great on you!! Also, I don’t think the 36mm is too big...especially if you’re 5’10. If I had to pick, I would say the smaller size does look slightly nicer on you. Either way you can’t go wrong, enjoy the watch!!!

Finally got the nerves to have it sized
Beautiful watch and imho the 31 looks better on you than a 36.

Cartier is always ok, just bought my better a Panthere bracelet.
Wanted to buy a 31DJ for her, same as yours but she preferred a bracelet :banged:

The watch and the ring look very nice. The 36 mm DJ works great on you and being taller you have a well proportioned size. My wife is your height and wears a 36 mm DJ on the jubilee bracelet and it looks great.

Congrats!

I think the smaller DJ looks better on you, but if you like bigger watches the 36mm does not overhang

Two watches and two rings for different occasions.
Formal/Elegant: 28 DJ with diamond ring
Casual/Business: 36 DJ with Cartier YG ring
Nail polish to be selected accordingly... looks great on you.

Looks great! Glad you were able to find an AD who you could trust to size it.

I prefer the smaller size on you but the 36 doesn't look bad at all.

The 36 isn’t too big at all on you, I think it looks great! I’m happy to see this experience is way better than your previous experience.

Ring and both Rolex look good, even though I prefer the first choice size on you - looks classy. I have seen too many oversized Rolex on women in Dubai, so I am a little bit biased. I would choose a sportier model as a second Rolex, but if you regularly dress professionally/conservative, diamonds will do the job. Enjoy in good health.

RG congratulations on your first Rolex! How does that feel now?

It looks fantastic. I think you chose wisely with the 31mm. I will say the 36 mm would go good as well. I always felt that 36mm was closer to a lady's size anyway. That's just my personal opinion after trying 36mm on myself in the DJ; it just looked so small. But this was confirmed when I seen a lady at my office a few weeks ago. I noticed she had a nice DJ or OP 36mm with a beautiful stainless steel jubilee bracelet. It looked perfect on her, and she is tall as well, I'd say she is about 5'11" tall.

Enjoy it!
