The usual and quickest way to measure your wrist size, is size the part of your wrist where
you would typically wear a watch with a tape measure, and take the measurement in mm (millimetres).

If you do not have a tape measure and you want to find out your wrist circumference,
this handy watch guide is for you. There are different types of bracelets that have different sizes.

What bracelet size should I get for my wrist?

For both Standard Size and Larger watches, you want to wear most watches comfortably; you need to consider both your minimum and maximum measurements.

For example, if you measure at 6″ around your wrist, you can safely wear watches up to 7″. If you measure 8″, you can safely wear up to 9″.


Find a suitable case for your wrist.

The best way of doing this is by measuring your wrist first before buying any watches. If you are not sure how to measure your wrist, then please refer to our guide below.

The first thing to know when looking at any measurement is what unit of measure it uses. In this instance, we’re talking about millimetres. An mm is equal to 0.039 inches. So if you have a 38mm watch, then its diameter would be approximately 1 inch. If you had a 42mm watch, then its circumference would be 2 inches. The same goes for other measurements such as height, width, depth, etc.

You can also use our handy online size chart or pop into our jewellery store to get your actual size.
