Watch Size Information

What size wrist will the watch fit? 

New watches:  New watches listed on our website will come with all of the original links, in the standard size produced by the respective manufacturer, unless noted in the item description.  If your wrist size is larger than the standard size produced by the respective manufacturer, addtional links may be available at an additional cost.  Please use our CONTACT FORM to check on the price and availability of additional links.

Pre-owned watches:  Pre-owned watches may have been previously sized, and may not include all of the original links.  On pre-owned watches, we always note the maximum wrist size that the watch fits, in the item description.  If your wrist size is larger than the size posted in the item description, addtional links may be available at an additional cost.  Please use our CONTACT FORM to check on the price and availability of additional links.

How can I measure my wrist size? 

Use a flexible tape-measure: Wrap the tape-measure around your wrist, exactly flat with your wrist.  To ensure the watch fits comfortably, make sure not to wrap it around your wrist too tightly.  To ensure the watch does not fit too loosely, make sure not to wrap it around your wrist too loosely.  You can then add or subtract approximately 1/4" according to whether you prefer a loose, exact, or tight fit.  Make a note of the number at the point where the tape meets the 0. You can then add or subtract approximately 1/8"-1/4" according to whether you prefer a loose, exact, or tight fit.

Use our wrist-sizing tool: Simply download and print our wrist-sizing tool here: U-CLICK TIMEPIECES WRIST-SIZING TOOL .  To ensure the wrist sizing tool is printed out to scale, before printing, make sure the page "SCALE" option is set to "100%" in the printer options dialog box - see sample picture below. The U-CLICK TIMEPIECES WRIST-SIZING TOOL must be printed to 100% scale, on standard full-size letter paper (8 inches x 11 inches), in order to be accurate.   Once you have printed it out, you can use the guide below the instructions, and compare with a ruler, to ensure it has been printed correctly and accurately.  Then, cut it out, and VOILA! You have a quick and easy way to measure your wrist size.  Follow the instructions included in the wrist-sizing tool and make a note of your wrist size.

To ensure the watch fits comfortably, make sure not to wrap it around your wrist too tightly.  To ensure the watch does not fit too loosely, make sure not to wrap it around your wrist too loosely.  You can then add or subtract 1/8" to 1/4" according to whether you prefer a loose, exact, or tight fit. 

Note:  We recommend that you size your watch to a comfortable, yet not too loose or too tight size.  If worn too loose, (especially watches with a larger or heavier case), you may risk having the watch spin around on your wrist, or risk accidentally hitting and breaking the crystal.  If worn too tightly, you will put stress on the pins that hold the watch-bracelet together, and will cause the watch-bracelet to get "stretch" more quickly.

How can tell the size of the main body or "case" of a watch listed on your website? 

The main body is called the "case" of a watch and is measured in millimeters:  The "case" of a watch is the part that houses the dial, movement, bezel, crystal, lugs, and other parts.  See our watch parts diagram below. In the watch indudstry, watch cases are measured in millimeters.  Watch cases are measured by holding the watch, face-up, and measuring left to right at the widest point, not including the crown (the crown is the button you use to change the time with).  This will give you the width of the watch case. 

The length of the watch case is measured by holding the watch, face-up, and measuring from the top-most end of the lugs, to the bottom-most end of the lugs. The lugs or arms are the parts that extend up from the top and down from the bottom of the watch case, and hold the watch bracelet or strap in place with the help of a small pin. 

If you have a ruler with centimeters, 1cm equals 10 millimeters.  If you don't have a ruler with centimeters or millimeters, you can print out the U-CLICK TIMEPIECES WRIST-SIZING TOOL  shown above, and it includes a small millimeter ruler below the instructions.  * Because millimeters are so small, it is very important to print the document to 100% scale for accurate millimeter measurement.
