To measure a watch case size, place calipers from one side to the opposite side of the case, just above or below the crown, where the case diameter is the smallest. The easiest way is to measure the case from the 4 o'clock to 10 o'clock position or from the 2 o'clock to 8 o'clock position.

Knowing your wrist size

For men, a small wrist size is anything under 6.5 inches, whereas a small wrist measurement for women is anything under 5.5 inches.

Always remember that the larger the watch you choose, the harder it is to wear the watch discreetly.
