    I bought my Monaco knowing that at a tad under 40mm the Monaco would fit me. Many of the TH watches I see are considerably larger. I'm curious as to what watches in the TAG Heuer line-up are good for those with smaller wrists. I'm fond of Chronographs but open to other types of watches as well. Thanks for recommendations and I'd love to see some photos!!!

    Mine is seven inches, but some of the vintage pieces at 38mm are great!

    I have a WN1153 2000 Exclusive which is 37mm, should fit your wrist but also fits mine at 7.3/4"

    The Monaco, while being 39mm, wears easily like a 42 or 43 because of the square factor. My 39 Carrera looks puny next to a Monaco.

    If you can pull off a Monaco, you can wear any Tag Heuer

    You can also pull off anything you think you can pull off. Size is only in you head...well with watches anyway

    35mm is just perfect for a 6.5" wrist. But I wear up to 42mm without too much trouble, depending on the design. What really matters is the lug to lug length - usually the max I will go is 47 or 48mm.

    These videos are worth watching... the guy who made them, Tim mosso, talks a lot about sizing and I think he has a similar wrist size to yours.

    Ultimately as other posters have said if you are comfortable with your Monaco you could wear pretty much any of the heritage line.

    Uh, yeah but Tim Mosso is selling those watches and I've seen him review a 45mm watch and say you could wear it on a 6.1/2" wrist... well you could I guess.

    My point was more that the OP can see how it sits on tims wrist from the video and infer whether it would be something that might work

    I have a 6" wrist, technically ladies size.
    I have a couple of 43mm Carreras and wear them regularly, however not with short sleeves. Safety issues :)

    First, I'm a bit slow getting back to this; I've been working 12 hour nights this week and was busy trying to sleep.

    I do like watches that are as small as 34mm but in truth the sweets spot for me is at about the 40mm point.

    I've got watches up to 44mm and realistically 42 mm is about my upper limit for comfort and even that depending on the watch and my desire can feel too big.

    I know Invicta has made a business out of selling oversized watches. I bought into it for a while but regained sanity when I bought my first Omega. I won't wear any of their oversized ones (53mm) as they just are uncomfortable. One I bought is a 44mm which they sell as a woman's watch.

    I'll look closer at the heritage line. Thanks!

    I get the point, why would he say "I wouldn't buy this unless you have over a seven inch wrist?" It would screen out potential buyers.


    Safety issues, I'm intrigued??? Does this mean your wife doesn't know about them?

    Thanks, all!!!
