Sizing help? Farer’s crazy short Lug to Lug dims

To celebrate a new job I’ve decided to treat myself to a Farer Resolute in either 36mm or 39mm.

With a flat 6.5” wrist, I was looking at the 36mm, but the extremely compact 41mm L2L is throwing me off. The 39mm version’s L2L is only 45mm, only 1mm longer than my 36mm Seiko!

I do have a slender wrist, but am also 6’1 and 190 lbs. I’m worried that while other 36mm watches look fine on my wrist, this one may wear a little smaller than I’m used to.

Does anyone here have a 36 or 39 and have thoughts as to its fit? By chance is anyone in the Seattle area and are willing to let me see a Farer in the metal?

Thanks!

For reference here’s a couple of wrist shots w/ my 36.5mm (44 L2L) and 40mm (48.5 L2L) pieces. I think these fit fine, while the 36mm Farer would be smaller than either:

The clean look here is very good.

Well then! Congratulations X2!! I’m 6’4” 220lbs and still out on a 36mm. I thought it looked really good especially poking out of my jacket sleeve.

Not all L2L are equal as the shape of the case will have an impact for certain. I plan on getting the sorbet one eventually and also have a 6.5” wrist, it is only available in the 36 last check, BUT if it were available in the 39, I would get the 39.

I think the 36mm would be fine. 41mm L to L shouldn't be a big enough difference (vs 44) to make the 36mm too small.

I have a 6.75 in wrist and in my opinion the 36 mm fits like a charm

That does look good! Do you know your wrist width? Mine’s 2.2” w/ the calipers.

The sorbet is amazing. I’m thinking 36 might be more appropriate with the slightly more dressy/less tool watch style, but I also know the 39 would be the safer choice b/c it’s size is somewhere between two watches I already know fit well on my wrist. Decisions decisions…

Comparing your Seiko 5 Sports Flieger to the Farer 36mm, the difference in dimensions (by 0.5mm diameter, by 2mm in LTL) is so miniscule that it's so unnoticeable. The same point goes with the Farer 39mm compared to your IWC. Imho, the IWC LTL is actually too long while the Farer 39mm with 45mm LTL is perfect, avoiding any overhang. Finally, note that the Farer has a very thin bezel, and a white dial, making it visually look bigger on your wrist. ;)

Whichever you choose... Congrats on your new job, bud!
