This video will explain how to measure your wrist for a watch. It is important that a watch sits comfortably on a wrist, without it being too loose that it keeps turning around or too tight that it feels constricting.
The best way to measure your wrist for a watch is to have a flexible tailor tape that can wrap around your wrist. Most tailor tape will also include centimeters on one side and inches on the other. Since most high-end watches are made in Europe, many of their measurements are in millimeters and centimeters. However, American-based retailers will sometimes publish bracelet lengths or wrist sizes in inches. So, it is a good idea to have both measurements ready. To measure your wrist, wrap the tailor tape using the centimeter side around the area where you will wear the watch, which should be close to the wrist bone. It is best to measure your wrist with your palm open because your wrist is slightly larger this way compared to when your hand is closed to make a fist. Make sure you do not wrap the tailor tape too tightly or too loosely and see where the tip of the tape aligns with the scale to get the measurement. First write down the centimeter measurement of your wrist, then flip the tape around to see what the equivalent inch measurement is as well. Now you have both measurements recorded.
If you do not have tailor tape, you can also measure your wrist with a piece of string, a marker, and a ruler. Wrap the string around your wrist around the area where you will wear the watch, which should be close to the wrist bone. It is best to measure your wrist with your palm open because your wrist is slightly larger this way compared to when your hand is closed to make a fist. . Make sure you do not wrap the string too tightly or too loosely to get the best fit. Mark the spot where the string meets with the marker, then measure the two points against the ruler. We recommend noting down measurements in both centimeters and inches to make it easier to shop for a watch anywhere.
