Re: Advice on Twelve Purchase

@kev017 I also have a 6.75" wrist and have the 40mm Artic White Twelve. Check out my thread where you will find lots of photos of it on my wrist etc : The Twelve - C12 Arctic White #285 Thanks. Looks good on you. Any regrets on size? would you still go for the 40mm now the 36mm is available?

Re: Non CW of the Day

First day with my new Farer Aquamatic Freshwater. Love the colour, it really pops! And this is arguable the most muted colour of their range. Comes with 3 straps - haven’t tried the bracelet, not mad on the on NATO strap, the rubber is lovely.

Re: Advice on Twelve Purchase

Such a great looking watch!! Normally I like smaller sized watches. Both sizes look great on smaller as well as bigger wrists. Personally - 18cm/7 1/8"- I think I would go for the bigger watch. I do like date windows so that plays a role also. Love that icey blue that will probably the one for...

Re: Advice on Twelve Purchase

@kev017 Based on what you've said, I would say the 36mm version is the better one for you. I have both the 36mm green and the 40mm titanium blue models. Both wear fine on my c7.5" wrist. On your 6.75" wrist, I think the 40mm version would look a bit large (to my tastes, at least), especia...

Re: Advice on Twelve Purchase

My wrist is 17-17.5cms. I tried on the 40mm but ended up buying the 36mm. That was more about the dial colour than thinking that one was a better fit than the other. I will likely buy a 40mm in a dark dial colour at some stage. Both sizes were absolutely fine on my wrist. It just depends on the loo...

Advice on Twelve Purchase

Hi all Have my heart set on a Twelve and I would love some advice on what size to go for. I’m a male, with small to medium size wrists (around 17cm/6.75”). I tend to wear watches on the smaller size. I suspect 38 is around my sweet spot. I hear people say that watches with integrated braces “wear la...

Looks nice, but not for me. Need to save to a Twelve first.

If you happen to be anywhere in the Watford/Hemel Hempstead area, you’re welcome to come look at my C60 Trident Pro 300 40mm white dial… (long shot. I know)

Saw this in person today. It is lovely! The hand looks red in this picture but it looked almost pink in real life.

The Twelve - New Colours?

Hi All, I've might heart set on a Twelve, but can't decide which of the colours to go for. I seem to remember reading somewhere that CW might release more colours in the future. Does anyone know if this is true? If it is, I'd be inclined to wait a little longer to see what they release (if they inde...

Re: Buying my first CW and first mechanical watch

Hi there.

You haven’t mentioned your wrist size. Do you have any non-mechanical watches that the size feels right to you?

I bought my first CW the other day (same as you but white dial) and I’m genuinely blown away at the quality.

FWIW I have a 17cm wrist and the 40cm is perfect.
