Have to agree with most of the above, 38mm looks best to me.

I also like the 38. Too bad there isn't a 40.

Your choice but I'm going with the majority 38

The 38 looks too small. The 42 would look better on a bracelet. Send both back. :twisted:

They both look good, in the side by side comparison I've got to go with the 38.

Even though I have a strong preference for larger watches it's clear the 38 looks better propotioned in this case.

Strangely, when I saw the pic of the 38mm I would have guessed it was the larger size & it looks much better to my eye than the actual larger version.

38

You can carry off the 42, but the 38 looks better proportioned

These watches are so thin they do not look big on the wrist at all, I have the 42mm and it is awesome, if you are going down the 38mm route get a thin o matic, it is the better looking of the 38 mm watches hammy offer.. My 42 says hi by the way

Oh and they do have a nice thin 40 mm for whoever asked, the valiant, looks better in the flesh than on the website though
