Answered my own question. My B1 is about the same size actually smaller than an EVO and it's massive on her.

think it would be dependant on the size of her wrist and general style?

I hate it when you see a woman with a big watch and its wearing her rather than her wearing it!

My wife likes the size of my Evo on her wrist and in fact recently bought a "Men's" 43mm ceramic quartz made by Oniss from ShopNBC. ( http://www.shopnbc.com/product/?familyi ... ciid=11281 ) However, even though she wears the Oniss sometimes as a "fashion" watch (cuz it's all white I suppose.) she still wears her 34.4mm Breitling Callisto most of the time. She says the larger watch sometimes feels too heavy for her wrist. Heck, it's a lot lighter than my Evo which means I have the perfect excuse to never let her the Evo. Below is a wrist shot of her Callisto on her ?? size wrist. Next time I have the bracelet on my Evo I'll take a wrist shot of it on her wrist and post it here for comparison. :wink:
Best,
Ron

She can try to pull off my EVO only if she lets me pull off her ughhmmmm :uplaugh:
Seriously though, a lovely lady at Breitling Service Centre in Taipei is sporting a Navi.
Another one at one of the Rolex ADs is wearing a Sub.
Both look very nice, even the watches :twisted:

Actually the B01 Chronomat is bigger because it is longer lug end to lug end.

LOL. I'm late to the party. I wear either a JLC Grande Reverso or a Breitling Cosmonaute, both in that size range, and they look fine on me.

My opinion.
The answer is tied to the individual's character and presence.. not the circumference of the wrist.

Someone walking into a room can wear a chandelier and make it seem entirely fitting.
Another is best accessorized with something not so chandelier.

There's no right or wrong.. or judgment passed. I think it's an individual rule.

I take wristshots with a grain of salt. I need a full view to draw a conclusion.

My wife took my 38mm Bvlgari Scuba, and it seems to suit her fine. I don't think she can go over 40mm though, but I have seen women wear a Rolex Sub for example, and it looked nice. I think over that may be pushing it.

I've lost possession of my EVO/UTC to the Lady shown below. I removed a couple of links for her and although still loose on her wrist as she prefers, in my view it looks terrific on her, much better than on my wrist I might add. She is tall ( 5' 11") but her wrists are really not very big. IMO, she is a perfect match for the 43.7mm piece with its "daughter" UTC module attached and indeed easily "pulls it off" with style and grace. I'll try to get a wrist shot to post in the near future... :)
Best,
Ron
