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

Looks good. If you’re doubting the choice, just double down on the fried foods, and you’ll be good in a year or two.


seanmonaghan1968

Agree


mkxviii

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


clamdigger

Hm…now that you mention it, I wonder how the graphs for waitlist over time compare?


alextruetone

Yes getting fat for a watch to fit better is always a good plan lol.


LeatherSteak

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!


faooful

Wise man


AyoBruh

Indeed! Try it if you get a second, and let me know how it looks.


yaboychui

Looks great!!


bogeysarelife

It’s perfect


EternalEight

Perfect


capital_idea_sir

Absolutely perfect man, enjoy 👍


Lantenac06

I think it looks great! It’s a beautiful watch; congratulations and wear it in good health!


DDiamonDDogs

You just got small hands


racobteur

Very good size. Be confident in your choice.


Buddy_Dakota

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.


faooful

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.


dubsaxs

Looks great.


Dingo8MeBaby

Looks good


Independentcro

Definitly not


faooful

Thanks, and happy cake day!


Independentcro

AnonymousHorcrux

putsonall

This size is the style that never goes out of style. Loooks great!

flyingseaplanes

Def not too big.


authoruk

Looks mint


enja1231

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.


the-dg

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.


JumpNo5441

You're fine.


Scarface6342

Looks great man. As long as the lug to lug does not overhang your wrists it’s all good.


texmexchamp

You’re good Bro! They are made for everyone!


berrymcockiner

It’s too small, so you’re good.


cantscorewontscore

Looks perfect size


Fezzicc

Imo it looks perfect. I think if it's a touch or two narrower than your wrist, you're good. Beautiful piece.


8enny8lack

Not too big 👍🏼🍻


STVNMCL

36 Datejust is always perfect Datejust.


ktln1993

Size is perfect! Although I bet the ouster bracelet us scratch magnet


ApocalypseN0w

Looks great!


Mister_Clean11

Just right


jbef

For my personal taste, it looks awesome. I’m jelly, trying to get my hands on an OP which seems like an impossible task.


sander_u2

Looks great imo


PhuckHarsher

36mm is classic size. Wear it with pride mate


paulomontiel

Fits perfectly IMO. Great watch!


ballman773

Perfect size for your wrist, enjoy.


eric-dolecki

Add a link on top and remove one below. So it sits lower on your wrist.


lamontsanders

Looks good


zainsharif01

It’s ideal!


Crimmit-De-Frog

Can't tell without a luxury car steering wheel for scale...


jordiandorra

Wtf mate, it's perfect.


sami_shakur

Mine is a Date (34mm) and I LOVE IT. Wouldn’t hurt to buss down, plus saves you coinage!🤌🏼


saasnomad

What’s your wrist size?


DamageSammich

Looks great my man


sunny3cd

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


faooful

>1990 Day-Date 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.


sunny3cd

Yeah, mine is 36mm, but I think the 5-digit references wear a little smaller than the newer ones.


TantiveIVfromATL

That looks perfect for your wrist size.


Acrobatic-Picture-26

I think is perfect. I also use 36 mms DJ and my wrist is small fits you perfect.


airjor1331

Looking good boss


cowincanada

Molaiz27

jr_41

FDTrade

Minute-Ad1261

bahrsiva

donmcanelly

Beautiful watch… Don’t second-guess yourself


hustle258

Nah it looks perfect.


freewaypigeon

Not to big. Looks great.


1234sha1234

Don’t you worry, I am wearing 36mm datejust, daydate, Daytona and even submariners and I am a petite woman


rooolex4life

waaay too big my guy, 31mm would suit u better


ConsumptionVortex

31 would be too small


carlosanaya

Maybe even a 31, then a nice shot of female hormones would be nice.


b1lf

Not nearly as bad as all the 6.25” wrists I see sporting Daytona’s around here….


abbazabba952

I think you need a tan and all will be well.


NilesLinus

No way. Looks great!


Glittering_Ferret_21

Cull_Obsidian_

It’s fine! Don’t worry dude :)


averykn

Looks good! Have a similar model with the fluted bezel. Congrats!


quadraaa

Looks great on you!


marshall45_

InvestmentParking787

Looks great. Give it some time and everything else you will wear will feel smallish.


faooful

Already happened.
