    Tim Mosso from WatchBox has a 16cm (6.3 inches) wrist and says that it fits him well. It seems to look fine on him.

      Let me be the devil on your shoulder, you need both! These wear very differently and serve a very different purpose, but both of them are lovely

        The thought did cross my mind I have a 17,5cm wrist, so it comes down to taste and preferences. I’ve never liked huge watches, and actually enjoy the size and weight of a 6 digit sub.

        I’ll start with the 15500 and see where it takes me

          I have a 6.8 inch wrist (close to yours). As mentioned above, both serve different purposes but starting with the ZF 15500 is smart move. The 15703 SS feels awkward in my hand because it is top heavy. For summer wear (long term usage), I much prefer the XF 15706 FC.

            It really depends on your wrist size and shape, I have a 6.75 flat wrist and surprisingly the chunky Diver with XS strap feels better than a 154/155 RO with bracelet. Even though the RO covers more surface area due to the lug/bracelet design it always wiggles around on my wrist unless I size it super tight. Also it depends how you like to wear your watches, I like mine to be tight enough so it doesn't slide around.

            I have a Rubber B on the way for my 154 I'll let you know how that fits when it arrives.

              The issue is, i don't like the 15703 on rubber, i would want it on the bracelet, and that puts the weight up around 255g Thats alot of watch

              If i like the 15500, i'll give the 15703 a go later, worst case scenario it's C&R.

              Appreciate the input guys

                well I do believe the 15400 wears larger than a diver.
                the diver looks more sporty and chunky but the 15400 was definitely too big for me I got rid of this watch very quickly. At least on me personally the diver is like the 15202 in term of display size ...
                I would place them in a category a bit larger than a sub C for your reference (as I have these three watches to compare) but with much more wrist presence.

                for example the divers wears smaller than the Speedmaster professional...I ll try to do some shots tomorrow to show you if I have time....

                  I've got the ap diver... the 15202 and the 15500 and the 15400 and just no.

                  You're comparing the offshore to the 15202?

                  Just no.

                  The offshore Diver is WAY heavier and way higher... the 15202 is 8mm high vs divers 14-15mm. Not to mention 3mm small. Never have I ever seen the AP diver compared to the 15202... that is a first. One is regarded as a small discrete watch, the other is a chonky utilitarian beast, smaller than the other offshores but still big.

                  The 15400 wears smaller than the diver... and so does the 15500. It's mostly due to the weight and height. Both the 400 and 500 are slimmer. Wearability comes down in my opinion to weight + height. I have 8" wrists, so lugs mean nothing to me. But height / weight still matter.

                  I like the diver but I'm going to get rid of it as it's my least worn piece because it feels chonky and wrong. I love looking at it, but wearing it. No.

                  15202 wears like a dream even on my 8" wrist... the 15500 wears well too. Not personally keen on the 15400 either.

                  Anyway...

                  Diver is by far the biggest and you know it is the biggest when you wear it. And funny enough my diver is on rubber... so lord help it on a metal strap.

                    Speaking of which, I've ordered one on a metal strap. Tried it on before buying. Absolutely fantastic and solid construction. Personally the stainless steel strap just feels rugged af. As a powerlifter it feels gritty and utilitarian. Aye, it is a portable weapon lmao.

                    That's some blazing pretentious sniffing your own fart shite right there going on about gens being valuable and better because they can be passed on to children and such. Heck, that's advertising right in line with the De Beers diamond cucks

                      i do agree that a 15400 or a 15500 counterintuitevily wear "larger" than a diver.
                      I'm in love with the shape of Roo // Sucker for 3-6-9 dials

                          your opinion , not mine ...
                          I never said the diver was the size of the jumbo which I know perfectly as I have them both , but they wear similar (display size), while the 41mm RO are wearing larger to my eyes and on my wrist ....

                            Diver


                            114060 as your reference


                            Jumbo


                            114060 on strap for comparison


                            Like I said for me as I wear all three, they are in the same « size » category, and the RO 41mm wears « larger » than these...the latter being more in the category of the omega speed pro..
                            of course here I am not talking about thickness just wrist match...and In this game the Rolex is the smallest looking on the wrist.


                            EDIT: I don't know about diver on bracelet as I never tried it...

                                Sturdy as all hell. Very soft underneath. Overall hard to put one over the other. An ARF bracelet feels like butter, but very soft. A JF AP bracelet is strong and dependable, but not as soft and buttery.
