    • Watch Dimension - Average diameter in mm (w/o crown) of most watches?
      34-40mm is what the watch-industrie consider traditional gents size. They are also a more natural fit for the movements. For the average man a timepiece measuring more than 38 millimeters in diameter probably exceeds a tasteful watch-to-wrist ratio.

You would receive, via e-mail, a very accurate and detailed photo image of your watch with your logo on the dial.
