SD4K vs SD43 for small wrist

It's here!!!! It's a tad large for my wrist, but it's uber comfortable for me and I like it!

Hmmm that does look large for you. More-so than the Moonphase which is strange because the L2L I believe is exactly the same on both at 50 mm. The Moonphase does have the benefit that the bracelet pulls straight down from the lugs while the SD's solid end links actually extend the L2L out a few mm more from the case.

Anyway it's a great watch and size is all judgement of the wearer. I do believe simply going off the photos the SD4K may work a little better for you, while a 41 mm Sub may actually be the best choice of them all since the case thickness factors into this as well. Give it a few weeks and if you still think it wears larger than you like flip it. You should be able to get roughly what you paid for it back I would imagine.

Great watch, looks very big on your wrist but who cares what anyone else thinks if you are happy! Enjoy and wear in good health.

The 16600 works great on large wrists as well. 8.25 inches here. Love mine.

I've owned a 14060, 16610, 116600, and 16600. I have a 6.75-inch wrist. The only one I still own is the 16600. I can't begin to describe how incredible the 5 digit SD's are. Especially on smaller wrists.

Congratulations - give it a week to see how you feel living with it. There is no “too big” if you think it fits you.

Personally I have a 17cm wrist and went for the SD4K as 43mm was bit too big for me.




As others have said, there will be minimal price difference if you wanted to swap.

Since I got it and sized it 2pm yesterday, it hasn't left my wrist. I slept with it. I showered with it. Super comfortable.

Congratulations, that pic looks better than your earlier two.
Whilst the SD43 is a large watch, I think you just make it size wise, and if the comfort factor is OK, you will be good.
As others have said, you can easily trade without loss.
