Default Watch BT: How big is a 42mm bezel going to be? (other than "about 42mm")

I absolutely love the Archimede Pilot, but you can only get it in 42mm. My understanding is that's pretty large for a wristwatch. I really want the watch but I have fairly small wrists and don't want to look like I'm wearing a wall clock. What are some other watches (that I could go to a shop and try on) that are 42mm? Will 42mm look retarded on smaller wrists?

Default considering that ~23mm is about 1 inch....

Default Measure your wrist and see where you're at......

...if you can handle all the pens jokes, I'd guess that this guideline might be helpful:

&lt;6.5" wrist is probably too small for a 42mm watch
6.75"&gt;w&gt;6.5" wrist is probably OK
6.75&lt;wrist is totally normal.

FWIW I wear a 44mm Panerai and I feel that it's fine for me. It took some getting used to, but now I wouldn't wear anything under 40mm.

&lt;a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v494/Yogimersible/AureliosBase.jpg"&gt;
my 44mm Panerai Base&lt;/a&gt;

and here's a 42mm Baume &amp; Mercier vs. a 44mm Panerai...as you can see, the thickness of the bezel (and the resulting size of the dial) makes a difference in how large the watch looks.

Default I think you'll be okay. I have thin wrists as well and I decided to buy a...

Seiko Orange Monster as my first somewhat large watch. Its 43mm x 13mm. My wrist is about 6.5 inches and it sits and looks great.
