Metal bracelets need to fit perfectly in order for the watch to feel comfortable. But, everybody has a different perception of a perfectly fitted metal bracelet. Some like it looser, some really tight.
That's why we decided that instead of asking you to measure your wrist and select a bracelet size prior to ordering, increasing the possibility that we misjudge what would be a good fit for you, we will ship the watch with full length bracelet on, together with the necessary tools so that you can shorten it yourself to a most comfortable length (it's piece of cake, we promise).

Our view on watch diameters and wrist sizes
Yes, you might have a smaller wrist. But 42mm is a modest size, although it sounds big. Unless your wrist stayed the same since you were 10 years old, you'll be just fine with rocking a 47mm watch.
Just in case you're still uncertain, take a look at our smaller models.
Products made with CORDURA® fabrics are made to last, and are generally easy to care for. Dirt may be removed with spray cleaner or detergent and water. Avoid chlorine or bleach based cleansers. Oil or grease should first be treated with a dry cleaning solvent followed by a spray cleaner or detergent and water.
We are all only humans, but don't worry: every watch purchased on our website comes with a 2-year manufacturer's warranty.
