Watch Sizing & Watch Fitting Frequently Asked Questions
How do you know if a watch fits you?
You know a watch fits you when it’s comfortable — not too loose, not too tight — and doesn’t slide up or down when you move your arm. Another way to tell if a watch fits you: Slide your finger under the band. If you can’t, the watch is too tight.
How do I choose a watch size?
When you choose a watch, size and style matter — your wrist size and the watch’s style and diameter. To choose a watch size, measure your wrist. For wrists 14-18 centimeters (5-7 inches), choose a small or medium-size watch. Over 18 centimeters (8+ inches), choose a watch with a larger face.
How do I know my watch strap size?
To know your watch strap size, check for a size stamp on the back of the band. If there isn’t one, measure the space between the two metal pieces (lugs) that secure the strap to the watch. Or, measure the watch’s face. Strap widths are generally half a watch’s diameter.
What is band width on a watch?
The band width on a watch is the measurement between the two metal pieces (lugs) that securely attach the watch band/strap to the watch case. Lug, or band width, varies but is relatively standard on most watches. Knowing the band width on a watch is essential when replacing the band.
What is the standard watch band size?
The style and manufacturer are what determine the standard watch band size. For women, the standard watch band size ranges from 6 3/4 inches to 8 inches. For men, whose wrists and overall size are generally larger, the standard watch band measures between 7 3/4 inches and 9 1/2 inches.
What is band length?
Watch band lengths depend on the style and manufacturer. The popular “strap” style has a “buckle” strap and a “tail” strap. When replacing the straps, combine the band lengths of both. Band lengths for women are 6 3/4 inches to 8 inches; for men, 7 3/4 inches to 9 1/2 inches.
