Still a ways to go. 38mm is the new 40mm. Thankfully!

Ever watch a movie or TV show from as recent as, say, 1983? Look at the wrists. Normal sized watches in sizes that existed for, well, forever.

Thanks to low-rent home shopping networks, we're still gonna have those big, glandular case sizes. Fine - but the rest of the world has settled down and has learned that understated is just fine.

^^^Exactly. From the first wristwatch until the TeeVee watch era, 34-36mm was the normal. 40mm was huge.

Being a big wristed chap the bigger watches work better for me, smallest I can realistically get away with is 38mm, If I go to 36mm it looks like a kids watch..
