Watch size

    Does anybody know if there is a standard size that watches are made to?
    I went in to a jewelers today and tried on at least 20 and none would fit, the sales assistant told me they would have to send away for extra links. I always thought there were extra links included in the case.
    My wrist is 8.5" is this abnormal?

    I have a 7.5" wrist, and I usually have 1 link removed (Omega, Tag bracelets) so I'd say 8" would be standard length.

    Cheers for the advice, I don't mind paying for the extra links I was just anoyed I couldn't buy a watch and wear it straight away.
    I'd prefer a braclet but they did have one festina watch that had a bracelet and a strap but that was also to small.

    On the bright side you can wear some nice large-faced watches and not look like a twat.:D
