Mine is 6" but there is no option for that under mens. Must mean I'm a girl :-(

I have voted.
I was however, reluctant. :(
Every time I am asked to measure the circumference of something on my body, I end up being told off. :(
Waist......too big. :(
Hips....too wide :(
Calves, thighs......'evidence of epithelial tissue...' :(
I bet I am not the only one who feels a chill finger of fear when it comes to girth or weight....... :wave:

3 years ago I had a 7.5 inch wrist and a 38 inch waist, today I have a 7 inch wrist and a 32 inch waist.
So is wrist size directly related to waist size. :?

You are right, Alphajet. A proportion of wrist size seems to be related to excess waist size... I lost 1" from my wrist, and slightly more from my waist. :oops:

I voted there, I can't for the life of me remember if my wrist is 6.5" or 6.75" but it falls into the one category anyway.

Keep those votes coming. Chris is finding this very helpful.

Thanks to all who have voted for your wrist size. :thumbup:

Most of the current CW men's leather straps are 21cm, but does anyone know what range of wrist sizes this allows for when attached to a watch, say a C9 for instance, from the shortest hole to the longest length?

Most "regular" size straps I see for sale on other site are around 19cm, so is there any reason why a 21cm strap was chosen as CW's regular?

I'm at 6.5" as well. Big jump to 7.25" in that same category, though.

Wow, here I've been thinking I'm a skinny 6.5" wrist, just measured to check.... 6.25"

Think my wirsts have shrunk(along with the rest of my muscles) since moving on from working at a brewery :shock:

7.0" exact. I'm a short guy but my wrists aren't small apparently. That said, I don't like watches bigger than 43mm, and, really, I prefer 42mm and under.

Mine is 7.5" but TBH I find even 42mm watches (I have two) a bit too big. I have a 42mm Russian watch which is also rather thick, and it feels like I'm wearing a saucepan. The Christopher Ward C11 is better, but I would wear it more if it was 40mm. :?
