    I've been looking at a few different Tags. I have a 7" wrist. Is a 42mm gonna be too big?

    for that price range i'd personally prefer an Omega :)

    I've looked at everything. I'm positive I want a Tag. Just want to know if a 42mm is going to be too big looking. This is going to be an everyday watch.

    nice watch under 150 for small wrist?

    ok i have like really skinny wrists, i'm 5'10 and weigh like 150, therefore being pretty slim all around

    anyways i need a nice watch under $150 that would look ok on me, i dont want a big huge watch as it would look silly on my almost girl like wrists....

    that budget is not set in stone, i'm willing to save up more if it's worth the "niceness"

    get u a talking watch, son.
    Seriously though, look at seiko watches, they are not only affordable but have some really attractive styles, and hold up well under stress.

    i've seen some decent looking skagen watches that aren't overly huge. I think they are in your price range, too.

    keep on coming with the suggestions guys....
    the watch doesn't necessarily have to be small in size, just look good on a small wrist
