I would like to see more 39-41mm cases.

    I love the designs and price points of TH watches but they are all too big for me.
    I wish TH would make more watches that are 39 ~ 41 mm.
    41mm Aquaracer ceramic will be my first TH and I would like to own more TH.

    There are still Carreras within that size range. It's not all lost :)

    Not enough, though. I agree with Void_wrist (great name!) :)

    I actually prefer it bigger and bigger (and may i say as the market demand nowadays ?).

    One thing i noticed though. our 45mm is not actually as big as AP ROO 45mm. i actually want it as big then its gonna be so badass.

    Its funny how taste can be so different one another eh? cheers

    I keep hearing that sizes are going to get smaller but I don't really see any evidence of it. For me 40mm is the absolute minimum nowadays.

    40mm is more like my maximum :)

    But I think Tag should cater for both size tastes if possible. Name one watch they do that comes in a variety of sizes (I mean an actual model, not just a line of watches like Aquaracer or Carrera). Omega do midsize and full-size versions of the Seamaster, and 38.5 and 41mm versions of the Aqua Terra.

    In fact, I can't think of a single watch that Tag do nowadays that's less than 40mm apart from the Telemeter Carrera. Can anyone else?

    You can bet the late Fred Gwynne (a.k.a. Herman Munster) wore a big watch!

    Only other heritage Heuer pieces. The Calibre 6 Carrera is 39mm. The Monaco is technically 39mm too although wears much larger (too large for me).

    I wish there was a 41mm version of Aquaracer chrono.

    Yes, I'm with you on case size...and don't forget the role of thickness too. While the new Monza is 42mm (a lot larger than the 38mm model from 2000), at least it has a relatively slim case profile.

    No doubt, 43mm seems to be the new norm (the 2017 Autavia is 42mm)

    I applaud Rolex for keeping Daytona at 40mm.
