Wrist Size with a C7 Rapide Leather Strap

Post by Devine »

Hey guys
I own a C70 BRG Limited edition quartz, which has a leather strap with a deployment style clasp.

I want to buy a C7 Rapide automatic this month, but Im worried that the strap wont fit my 16.5-17.0 cm wrists. (I dont mind a large case on my wrist)
Im thinking that there may not be enough perforations on the strap to be tight enough on my rather dwindly chicken leg wrists!

anyone own one of these, or something similar and know that these will fit?

If purchasing the watch directly from CW, I'd ask them whether or not they have any of the XS straps left in stock.

As an example of an XS size strap, this is currently available on their website https://www.christopherward.co.uk/strap ... -xs-1350ff albeit not in the right black/red/white colour combo.
C60 FLE (Red JAG); C60 Trident 316L LE (Orange, Blue/Orange, Yellow, Black/Yellow); C60 Ombre LE.
C65 Trident Bronze SH21 LE; C9 FLE.

^^ On my 7inch wrist the red/black Piccari leather strap was just too large on the last hole. I haven’t been able to use it, and switched to a bracelet.
My name is 0uatiOW, but before you ask, no I don’t.
