I'm a really slim guy, I look young and my wrists are slimmer than anybody's I've met. Though, I've a good bone structure elsewhere - shoulders.

So far I think this one may be an alright choice for my needs, but I want some suggestions (I live in Europe, not the US, by the way!) http://www.timex.com/watches/timex-dress-strap-t2n1079j

Thanks!

Have a look at the "stiletto" range from Citizen, very compact and sleek

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Citizen-Eco-Drive-Stiletto-Watch-Ar1123-01A...

 

I'll be treating myself to the one I've linked some time in may...5mm thick, 36mm wide, very slick!

 

They do some cheaper models with the same sort of spec for around half the price if budget is a problem

 

Skagen also do a lot of very slim, small watches.

 

Yea, the budget's a problem, actually. Forgot to mention that - sorry. My budget's up to $150.

Checked the Citizen site. Their watches seem a bit too thick for my taste, but an OK solution as a worst-case-scenario, same like the one I've linked to in the OP.

Can't actually see the exact watch you linked to, I just keep getting directed to the home page...so I'm still operating under the assumption that you want a plain, nice looking leather strap sort of deal.

 

These all come in at around £80 (which is around $150 or not too much more I believe)

Just throwing a few ideas out there for you, I think 35mm width is about as small as most mens watches go to be honest (I could be totally wrong of course). :)

Edit: Probably a bit out of your price range, but if 35mm really is too big, the Wenger womens models actually mirror their mens designs very well, but come in at around 30mm wide...I own a mans "Wenger Alpine", but the womans version is exactly the same, just smaller. Once again, just chucking a few ideas out there.

Your assumption is correct. Here's a picture of a watch I REALLY like, no idea what's the brand, model, price, just the picture: http://professionalwatches.com/upload/2011/08/vacheron_constantin_c...

It looks amazing - the band, the design, the colors. I bet such would be waaay out of my budget range though.



As from the ones you've linked me to, the last one's my favorite so far. But I'd prefer something with a lighter design, like the one I've posted the picture of above.

Ah, very sleek...definitely look at the "Skagen" brand if you are looking for something like that...they are very thin and they aren't high end, so they won't cost you the earth

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skagen-Ultra-Watch-858XLSLC-Leather/dp/B003...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skagen-Designs-Leather-Analogue-858XLSLD/dp...

5mm depth, 39mm wide...although they might be a bit wide, remember that you can explore the womens/unisex options and probably find much the same but a bit smaller.

Checked Ebay for the second model that you've linked me to, and then for all available Skagens. It's within my budget, but the 39mm scares me a bit. It would leave 1-2mm of my wrist uncovered by the watch, which I think would look just bad.

I think you are going to have to go down the womens watch route to get something around 30mm be honest, but the type of watch you are looking for is to your advantage, there must be loads of plain leather strapped womens watches out there...and they don't have big signs announcing they are for women on them, so if it looks good on your wrist, then it simply looks good.

Perhaps you have any suggestions?

My Dad - My first hero

This is my first post I have been reading the board for awhile since my father got sick in Sept of 2014 and we learned it was terminal in Oct of 2014.I do not even know where to start as my father only past just this week.  My father was a firefighter for 31 years retired a Capt and I will never realize how many lives he truly touched or made a difference in but over the last week how many people have expressed how truly sorry they are to see him gone has been shocking.My father was not soft…See More
