Rolex Watch Sizes and Dimensions Guide

 When looking for a watch, the size and dimensions are extremely important to consider. Depending on your wrist size and preference, you may want to look for a larger or a smaller watch. The most common measurement of a watch that we look at is the diameter.

This is measured from side to side of the watch case. But there are also other dimensions you want to consider when looking for a watch. The diameter of a watch can wear very differently depending on the type of watch and how it is designed. The size you should have on your Rolex ultimately comes down to what you prefer wearing. Some people enjoy large watches and will gravitate towards watches on the larger side. Others, however, prefer their watches to be small and traditional, which may mean looking for watches that are 36mm in diameter, or even smaller.

Rolex has a large number of watches in its collection. The smallest case is for men’s watches is 31mm and the largest case is 44mm. Ladies’ watches can be found as small as 24mm.

Again, how a watch wears is not all about the diameter or dimensions on paper. The ceramic Submariner, for example, has a case with 40mm in diameter, but it is frequently discussed that the Submariner wears larger than other watches which are also 40mm on paper. Ultimately, there is no comparison to putting a watch on your wrist, but for getting an idea of the size of a watch, it can help to look at a number of different dimensions.

In this article, we have listed the dimensions of a number of Rolex watch models.

Consider the height/thickness of the Rolex watch

The height of the Rolex watch is also something you should consider as it has a big impact on how it wears.

When a watch sits slimmed on the wrist, it appears smaller than it may be. On the other hand, a watch that is thick sits much bulkier on the wrist, which naturally has an effect on how its size is perceived.

The height is also worth considering depending on the type of watch and the occasions you plan on wearing it. A dress watch, for example, is meant to be slimmed and elegant, but a sports watch, on the other hand, should be more bulky and robust.

Lug-to-lug

Lug-to-lug is a common measurement in watches.

The lug-to-lug measurement is used to determine the distance between the edge of one lug to the other. Do not confuse this with the side between the lugs (which relates to how wide the strap/bracelet is.

The lug-to-lug has a huge effect on how a watch wears, and so it is an important one to consider. Generally speaking, watches with short lugs result in a watch that wears smaller than it actually is, since the lugs do not stick out on the sides of the wrist. This also means that you can technically have a watch with a larger case diameter when it has short lugs. This goes to show that only looking at the case diameter can give a skewed idea of how a watch actually wears on the wrist.

When it comes to Rolex and the dimensions of the watches, Rolex is not very good at clearly communicating all of the relevant dimensions. The only dimension that Rolex shares are the diameter of the watch. But as you know, the diameter does not say everything.
