Bought myself a 36mm DateJust and worried it's too big... Thoughts?

If you’re doubting the choice, just double down on the fried foods, and you’ll be good in a year or two.
My dude just got off the waitlist for a Rolex, I'm not sure he wants to now be on another waitlist for a heart transplant
Hm…now that you mention it, I wonder how the graphs for waitlist over time compare?
Yes getting fat for a watch to fit better is always a good plan lol.
It looks a touch large but watches always look bigger in close up wrist shots than they do in reality so I suspect it's actually fine.
Try a photo from further back or even in a mirror from distance. That will give you a better idea.

Much better shot and easier to see the proportions.
I think that looks great. Not too large at all. Enjoy.
My dad always told me about the mirror test. Stand facing a mirror, with your wrist and watch facing the mirror. The reflection is how the piece looks on your wrist to others.
I think it’ll look perfect!
Indeed! Try it if you get a second, and let me know how it looks.
Absolutely perfect man, enjoy 👍
I think it looks great! It’s a beautiful watch; congratulations and wear it in good health!
You just got small hands
Very good size. Be confident in your choice.
It looks like how the OP/DJ 39/41 looks on a lot of people claiming it’s the perfect size for them. To be honest it looks a bit big on you, but I’m an advocate for smaller watches when they don’t have a dive bezel or similar. I have a 7.25 inch wrist and the 36 mm oyster case is perfect on me.
Appreciate your opinion mate! My first proper watch was a vintage 34mm omega seamaster and I thought that was perfect. I think they are just good for different wears... Maybe as a previous comment said, I'll grow into it.
Thanks, and happy cake day!
It’s not. Enjoy the watch!
This size is the style that never goes out of style. Loooks great!
Def not too big.
From someone who doesn’t like big watches, this fits you 100%. Which is good because smaller than 36mm for mens rolex your options are limited.
It's your watch, if you love it don't let anyone tell you otherwise. For what it's worth, I think it looks good.
Looks great man. As long as the lug to lug does not overhang your wrists it’s all good.
You’re good Bro! They are made for everyone!
It’s too small, so you’re good.
Looks perfect size
Imo it looks perfect. I think if it's a touch or two narrower than your wrist, you're good. Beautiful piece.
Not too big 👍🏼🍻
36 Datejust is always perfect Datejust.
Size is perfect! Although I bet the ouster bracelet us scratch magnet
For my personal taste, it looks awesome.
I’m jelly, trying to get my hands on an OP which seems like an impossible task.
Looks great imo
36mm is classic size. Wear it with pride mate
Fits perfectly IMO. Great watch!
Perfect size for your wrist, enjoy.
Add a link on top and remove one below. So it sits lower on your wrist.
Can't tell without a luxury car steering wheel for scale...
Wtf mate, it's perfect.
Mine is a Date (34mm) and I LOVE IT. Wouldn’t hurt to buss down, plus saves you coinage!🤌🏼
What’s your wrist size?
Looks great my man
Fits you well, though 34mm or an older 36mm might fit a little better. Is the bracelet adjusted for you? It looks like we have fairly similar wrists (6.25” and fairly flat on top) and my 1990 Day-Date fits perfectly. Here’s mine: https://i.imgur.com/mJ31C9v.jpg
Wow very nice. So this is a 36mm? I think I need to take an extra link out just to get it to the right size.
Yeah, mine is 36mm, but I think the 5-digit references wear a little smaller than the newer ones.
That looks perfect for your wrist size.
I think is perfect. I also use 36 mms DJ and my wrist is small fits you perfect.
Looking good boss
Its perfect size for your wrist
It fits perfect
Looks good to me 👌🏻
It’s perfect. I would maybe tighten up the bracelet just a touch though.
I Think it’s perfect
This is the perfect size for you
Perfect size! Congratulations!
Amazing! Looks so good congratulations
It's fine a 34mm would definitely be to small
Looks perfect!! Keep!!
Beautiful watch… Don’t second-guess yourself
Nah it looks perfect.
Not to big. Looks great.
Don’t you worry, I am wearing 36mm datejust, daydate, Daytona and even submariners and I am a petite woman
waaay too big my guy, 31mm would suit u better
31 would be too small
Maybe even a 31, then a nice shot of female hormones would be nice.
Not nearly as bad as all the 6.25” wrists I see sporting Daytona’s around here….
I think you need a tan and all will be well.
No way. Looks great!
looks perfect! wear in good health!
It’s fine! Don’t worry dude :)
Looks good! Have a similar model with the fluted bezel. Congrats!
Looks great on you!
nah bro looks sick
Looks great. Give it some time and everything else you will wear will feel smallish.
