How do I choose a watch for a small wrist?

small wrist watch

The watch is a must-see accessory, so it is important to choose it well, especially when one has the fine wrists. While in recent years the trend has turned to very wide watches, these oversized watch models are not suitable for everyone, especially men and women with small wrists. Today, Team Charlie Paris gives you advice to choose a watch for small wrists.

  1. The diameter and thickness of the watch case
  2. Consider lhas the shape of the case for a watch adapted to a small wrist
  3. The size of the bracelet
  4. The design of the watch, an element to consider when you have a small wrist

1. The diameter and thickness of the watch case

It does not matter how much a wrist is, when choosing a woman watch or a man watch, beyond its primary function of giving time, one also chooses a fashion accessory to complete and perfect an outfit. Thus, respect for proportions plays a great role in creating a harmonious whole. There are thus some benchmarks to which reliance such as the diameter and thickness of the watch. The diameter of a watch box determines the position that your watch visually takes. If you have the fine wrists it is therefore important to choose a watch with the diameter adapted to your wrist size.

To do this, measure your wrist with a seam meter. To help you if you have any doubt, a woman generally has a wrist with a circumference of 14 to 18 cm while a man will usually have a wrist between 15 and 19 cm. For women with very fine wrists measuring 15 cm or less, we recommend you choose a watch with a box diameter of up to 32 mm. Men and women with small wrists can turn to watches with a diameter of 27mm. We advise men with fine wrists to stay on a watch diameter less than 40mm.

Once you have found a watch model with a suitable diameter for your small wrist, remember to consider the thickness of your watch. Indeed, even if the diameter of the merger is reasonable, a watch may be quite voluminous. Obviously, the finer the case, the better the rendering on a small wrist. The quartz watches are usually thinner than automatic watches that work without a stack. To find a beautiful watch for a fine wrist you have to succeed in associating a reasonable limp diameter with a fine structure. A watch for small wrists should not exceed 12 to 13 mm thick in the ideal.

 

2. Take into account the shape of the case for a watch adapted to a small wrist

The shape of the watch boot is also an element to consider when looking for a watch for an end wrist. Indeed, some watches appear broader than others in their form. A watch with large horns (designs the part where the bracelet is attached) will produce a large effect. By doing your research, you will see that the watches exist in different forms: rectangular, round, square, oval... A watch will not produce the same effect on the wrist depending on whether it is round or rectangular. The shape of a watch is also linked to the thickness and diameter of it, so there is no general rule. However, a round watch is easier to wear than a square watch that is often more massive. You will have understood that if you have small wrists, prefer round watches. Nevertheless, if you want a square watch, then favour a watch that is said to be “coussin”—that is, a watch that crushes the angles of the merger and then looks smaller right away.

 

3. The size of the bracelet

Generally, the size of the bracelet goes hand in hand with that of the watch. Less thick and narrower bracelets are found on watch models with a small diameter and vice versa. However, this is not always the case and some watch models can be found with correct waist-level lame lamps, but too large bracelets. To produce a harmonious set, the proportions must be fair. If the bracelet size is related to that of the watch, there are bracelet materials that will produce a thicker or lesser effect. For example, a smooth leather watch bracelet is finer and more flexible than a grained leather bracelet. Visually this type of leather produces a less massive bracelet and allows you to maintain the overall harmony of your watch.

In any case, no worry, at Charlie Paris we offer french watches to interchangeable bracelets. Our watch bracelets are very easily changed thanks to their flash pump system and we offer a wide range of colors and materials. This system allows you to change watch bracelets at the rate of your desires and prevents you from spoiling the entire watch because of a bad bracelet choice.

 

4. The design of the watch, an element to consider when you have a small wrist

Outside the merger, the bracelet, a watch is composed of other elements like a crown, a bezel, or buttons that participate in its design. The presence of these elements can overload the watch and give it a more massive appearance despite the finesse of its merchandise and bracelet. On a small wrist, complications and elements seem totally disproportionate. The design of these elements can produce a more imposing watch than it really is. So the best thing is to choose fairly simple and clean design watch models. Generally speaking, the simplest watches are perfect on fine wrists.

Tip Charlie Paris: If you like vintage retro style, you can turn to vintage-style watches because they are particularly suitable for the small wrist. The diameter of vintage watch models typically revolves around 36mm. Among these fine and narrow watches you will certainly find a watch that will fit perfectly to your wrist.
