Rolex Watch Case Sizes

When purchasing a Rolex, one of the most important factors to consider is the size of the watch case. Buyers, both men and women, always want to know the available watch sizes in order to find the watch that will best fit their wrist. Rolex has made minor revisions and enhancements to the case throughout the years, but their familiar, iconic look has remained the same.

This may sound blindingly obvious, but there are one or two things you should be aware of before you set out to proclaim your watch ##mm with absolute confidence. Arm yourself with a trusty Vernier tool (a pair of measuring calipers), and head out into the wild to enjoy the pre-owned luxury watch measuring safari that awaits!

Rolex

How To Measure The Case Size Of A Watch

Firstly, you should be aware of the industry norms. The diameter of a watch is its external width across its horizontal axis (from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock), The vast majority of diameters are listed without taking into account the protrusion of the crown or crown guards. That means the number listed is almost always the diameter of the case, but not the amount of real estate that will be taken up by the watch once it is on your wrist. For example, the Rolex Submariner 116610 has the same 40mm case diameter as its predecessor; however, it appears significantly larger due to its thicker lugs and crown guards.

How to Measure the Case Size of a Watch - Rolex GMT-Master II Batman

Height

When we talk about the "height" of a watch, we are talking about how thick it is, or how tall it will stand up on your wrist. For example, you would expect dress watches to be very slim, and sports chronographs to be quite thick, or tall. Be aware, though, that some brands – especially those which use high domed or box sapphire crystals – occasionally list the height of the case without the crystal. This is unusual but certainly not unheard of.

Length

Although the term "length" is not often used to describe the lug-to-lug measurement, it is an appropriate one in this context. This measurement is nothing to do with the distance between the lugs (which will denote the width of the strap of bracelet your watch requires), but rather the tip of one lug to the tip of its opposite equal. This “length” is very important because it can vastly impact the overall wearability of a watch.

If, for example, you were to take a SevenFriday P3 model and a NOMOS Club Campus 36, you would immediately assume there was no way they could be worn on the same wrist. However, the “lugless” case of the SevenFriday P3 measures 47mm in diameter, but only 47.6mm in length. Meanwhile, the NOMOS Club Campus has a 36mm diameter, but a surprisingly large 47.2mm lug-to-lug length, proving that it is not always beneficial to judge a watch by its case diameter alone. Additionally, the shape and thickness of the lugs themselves can also impact the perceived size of a watch, which can be seen in the Rolex "Super Case" watches that appear larger than their predecessors, despite having identical case measurements.

Usually, one would expect to find measurements expressed in the following way: diameter × height × length. If only one number is given (for example, 42mm) it should be taken to mean the diameter (without the crown). If two numbers are listed, then things may become a little more confusing. If the watch in question is round, then these numbers will usually stand for diameter × height. However, if the watch is a cushion or rectangular shape, these numbers will likely stand for diameter and length between the lugs. Worse still, there is little agreement among brands as to which number should be featured first. The vast majority of brands will list the diameter first for the sake of consistency, but some major labels (such as Hamilton) actually list the external vertical axis measurement (from 12 o’clock to 6 o’clock) first.

The size of true square watches is always expressed by horizontal axis × vertical axis (so width × length between the lugs). However, the size of a square watch is incredibly deceptive. What is more indicative of its size relative to other watches on the market is its corner-to-corner measurement. That will give you a better idea of how much wrist space it will command while worn. Case in point, a square watch listed as 33mm × 33mm will actually have a corner-to-corner measurement of 46mm, meaning that it is far from a shrinking violet.

Once you have established what kind of dimensions you feel comfortable wearing, you then have to figure out how to attach those watches to your wrist. An easy way of measuring the circumference your non-circular wrist is to wrap a piece of string around it and then remove it and lay it flat against a ruler. Most people have wrists between 6 and 8 inches, with the vast majority being clustered around 6.5 to 7.5 inches. But remember to factor in the case size of a watch when it comes to ordering a replacement strap!

And if you do have a very small, or very large wrist, worry not. There are plenty of very talented bespoke strap makers in the world that do not charge the Earth for custom bands!

There are obviously a lot of factors that people consider when buying a watch - the face, what kind of numerals circle the dial, the type of bracelet, the style of the bezel. One thing that often tends to be an afterthought is the size of the watch itself. However, you could argue this is one of the most important things to consider when shopping for a new luxury watch. And while you can also argue that size also comes down to taste, the fact of the matter is that some Rolex watches may just look too small on your wrist while others may be far too oversized. So now you're wondering, 'what size should I buy?' Luckily, we are here to help. There are two main categories for men's watches, 'mid-size' and 'large size,' each encompassing different Rolex watches for men.

Rolex watches for men size guide Deepsea Sea-Dweller 116660 D-Blue Dial James Cameron What size Rolex watch should you buy?

Mid-Size Rolex Watches

  • Specs: 36mm, 37mm, and 39mm
  • Watches: Datejust, Yacht-Master, Cellini, Explorer, Oyster Perpetual
  • Good for: Timeless look, vintage look, smaller frames

Rolex watches for men size guide Datejust two-tone Rolesor 16233 The traditional case size of Rolex watches for men is 36mm.

36mm

Rolex watches for men sizing guide Datejust 36 two-tone 126233 The mid-size Rolex watches for men span three sizes, the most famous being the classic 36mm Datejust. The traditional 36mm version was previously the standard men's size, but with the introductions of the larger 41mm models, the classic Datejust 36 has become one of the brand's most versatile models, appealing equally to both male and female buyers. You already know this as the classic everyday watch, so it's pretty fitting that Rolex has forged it in a size that’s universally timeless. And by that we mean it's the kind of size that’s never going to go out of style - never too small, and in no way large. This is the best size for people who want something comfortable, unobtrusive, and utterly classic. The equally classic Oyster Perpetual collection is also offered with the option of a 36mm case size.  

37mm

Rolex watches for men size guide Yachtmaster 37 Everose Oysterflex 268655 The next size up is the Yacht-Master 37mm, which is actually a unisex watch. The versatile 37mm case size offers a lot more wrist presence than the Lady Yacht-Master, while simultaneously being noticeably lighter and more compact than the standard 40mm men's model. Since there’s only one watch with this case size, you have to be a fan of the Yacht-Master collection in order to enjoy it; however, it is the only Rolex sports model with a rotating bezel that is available in a size smaller than 40mm, making it the go-to option for those that want a mid-size Rolex sports watch.  

39mm

Rolex watches for men sizing guide Oyster Perpetual 39 Oystersteel 114300 Finally, there's the 39mm Explorer, Cellini, and Oyster Perpetual models. Technically, Rolex categorizes these as 'large size' watches, but most collectors will agree that this is by no means a large-sized watch (only large by Rolex standards). While the Rolex Explorer has historically had a case diameter of 36mm, the current 39mm version offers the perfect size for all those who want something that still feels classic on the wrist, while simultaneously offering a contemporary look and feel that is more in-line with modern preferences. [caption id="attachment_39397" align="aligncenter" width="1210"]Rolex watches for men sizing guide stainless steel ceramic Daytona 116500LN Many of Rolex's most famous watch collections have 40mm cases.[/caption]

Large Rolex Watches

  • Specs: 41mm, 42mm, 43mm, and 44mm
  • Watches: Datejust, Day-Date, Daytona, Air-King, Submariner, GMT-Master, Milgauss, Sky-Dweller, Yacht-Master, Explorer II, Sea-Dweller, Deepsea
  • Good for: Big-watch enthusiasts, bolder look, larger-frames

Let's get something straight off the bat: Rolex doesn’t really make "big" watches - at least not by everyone else's standards. Today, the average-sized men's watch is around 40mm to 42mm, so while these 'large Rolex watches' are bigger than their various mid-sized counterparts, they're not particularly large when compared to models from other brands. In fact, because of Rolex's relatively modest sizing, most of you reading this will have no problem at all slipping on a 'large' Rolex.

Rolex watches for men sizing guide Yacht-Master II 116680 The largest Rolex watches currently available have 44mm cases.

40mm

Rolex watches for men sizing guide Ceramic Pepsi GMT-Master II 126710 BLRO The 40mm collection is by far the largest, spanning classics like the Day-Date and everyone's favorite chronograph, the Daytona. Other notable models with case diameters of 40mm include the Air-King, Submariner, GMT-Master, Yacht-Master, and Milgauss. These watches sit substantially on the average wrist, giving them great readability and prominence. However, as noted above, the 40mm size is quite average by industry standards, meaning that these watches are going to have plenty of wrist presence, while still remaining very comfortable to wear all day, every day. Rolex's 40mm watches are great for someone who wants a modern watch that has a substantial presence without being ‘over the top' or too flashy.  

41mm

Rolex watches for men sizing guide Datejust 41 two-tone Rolesor 126333 The 41mm Datejust is for everyone who loves the classic aesthetic of the 36mm Datejust but who wants something that is bolder and feels more significant on the wrist. The current Datejust 41 adheres to the same design and proportions of the classic 36mm model, but is noticeably larger in size, making it the perfect watch for those who love the timeless look of the Datejust, but who think the 36mm just looks too small on them.  

42mm

Rolex watches for men sizing guide Polar Explorer II 216570 Among the 42mm Rolex watches, you will find the Sky-Dweller, Yacht-Master, and Explorer II. These are all iconic, impeccably designed, highly-functional Rolex timepieces with cases that are larger than the traditional Rolex watches for men. While 42mm is still considered average by today’s standards, you can really see and feel the difference here with these watches. All of these 42mm models offer additional functionality beyond the normal time and date displays of most Rolex watches, so many individuals who opt for these models are more than likely drawn to their unique features, rather than just their large case diameters.  

43mm

Rolex watches for men size guide two-tone Sea-Dweller 126603 steel and gold

The 43mm Sea-Dweller is among the largest watches currently produced by Rolex; however, it is still not the largest offering in the brand's current catalog. With depth rating of more than four times the 300 meters offered by the Rolex Submariner, the Sea-Dweller is Rolex's ultimate collection of professional dive watches. Historically, the Rolex Sea-Dweller was a 40mm watch; however, many collectors complained that it was too thick relative to its fairly standard 42mm case diameter. The lastest 43mm version of the Rolex Sea-Dweller remedies this issue, creating a watch that is noticeably larger than the Submariner, while still adhering to similar overall case proportions.  

44mm

Rolex watches for men size guide Yacht-Master II 116680 Finally, the biggest of the bunch, The Yacht-Master II and the Deepsea Sea-Dweller are the largest Rolex watches currently available and have case diameters of 44mm. Both the Yacht-Master II and the Deepsea are among the most technologically advanced timepieces that Rolex produces, with the Yacht-Master II offering an adjustable flyback countdown timer, and the Deepsea Sea-Dweller offering a unique case architecture that allows it to withstand depths of 3,900 meters. Their large cases are necessary for their advanced functionality, but some collectors may find these models to be slightly too big for their wrists. Regardless, both of these 44mm models are the largest Rolex watches currently available and represent the most advanced and capable professional sports watches in the brand's entire catalog.

It wasn't that long ago that 40 mm was the largest size available in Rolex’s catalog. The classic men's Rolex dress watches, such as the Day-Date and Datejust, had 36 mm cases, while the Professional models, like the Submariner, Daytona, and GMT-Master sported 40 mm cases. However, in the mid-2000s, that all changed when Rolex debuted the Yacht-Master II, followed by a host of other plus-sized Rolex watches that were released over the course of the next decade. If you’re a fan of big timepieces, then read on as we highlight the large Rolex watches, all of which have case diameters greater than 40 mm.

Yacht-Master II

Large Rolex Watches

The Rolex Yacht-Master II has a case diameter of 44 mm. Rolex unleashed the big and bold Yacht-Master II in 2007, which paved the way for the brand to begin producing larger watches. With a 44 mm Oyster case and a bright blue Cerachrom (ceramic) bezel, the Yacht-Master II is not a subtle watch in the slightest. In addition to being one of Rolex's flashier watches, it is also one of the Swiss watchmaker's most complex pieces, as it features an adjustable regatta countdown timer with a mechanical memory for use during professional yacht racing competitions.

Deepsea

Large Rolex Watches

The Deepsea is the largest Rolex dive watch with a case diameter of 44 mm. Plunging into the scene in 2008, the Deepsea Sea-Dweller is the king among the various large Rolex watches, and still remains Rolex's biggest timepiece to date. While on paper it has the same 44 mm case diameter as the Yacht-Master II, its Oyster case is much thicker to accommodate Rolex's innovative Ringlock System, which enables the Deepsea to have a mind-blowing 3,900 meters (12,800 feet) water resistance rating. Accompanied by an Oyster bracelet with two extension systems, this is one tough tool watch that can withstand extreme conditions, yet it remains perfectly suitable to wear as an everyday luxury sports watch.

Explorer II

Large Rolex Watches The Rolex Explorer II ref. 216570 is bigger than its predecessor with a case diameter of 42 mm. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Explorer II model in 2011, Rolex introduced a revamped version of their robust dual-time sports watch. Merging modern elements, like a larger 42 mm case, with vintage-inspired details, such as the return of the bright orange, arrow-shaped 24-hour hand, the new Explorer II offers buyers the best of both worlds. Whether it is fitted with a sleek black dial or a fresh white "Polar" dial, the current Explorer II is stylish, practical, and generously sized, making it perfectly suited for those who are interested in large Rolex watches.

Sky-Dweller

Large Rolex Watches

At 42 mm in diameter, the Sky-Dweller is the largest Rolex watch available with a fluted bezel. In 2012, Rolex unveiled an entirely new watch model dubbed the Sky-Dweller. Not only was the Sky-Dweller the dressiest men’s watch the company had released since the 1954 debut of the Day-Date, but it was also the most complex watch to join Rolex’s lineup in over five decades. Featuring an annual calendar complication that only requires resetting once per year, the 42 mm Rolex Sky-Dweller is capable of simultaneously displaying the local time, a second time zone, the date, and the month — all of which can be easily set thanks to its fluted "Ring Command" bezel.

Datejust 41

Large Rolex Watches

The Rolex Datejust 41 has significantly more wrist-presence than the classic 36 mm men's Datejust. Rolex famously launched their Datejust line back in 1945 as the world's first automatic chronometer to include a date window on the dial. For over 60 years, the men’s Datejust was exclusively offered with a 36 mm Oyster case; however in 2009, Rolex introduced the Datejust II collection, which increased the Datejust's case diameter to 41 mm. Perhaps future watch scholars will consider the Datejust II a transitional model since Rolex replaced it with the current Datejust 41 in 2016. On paper, it features the same 41 mm case measurement as its predecessor; however the Datejust 41 has leaner lugs, a slimmer case, and a slightly thinner bezel. Internally, the Datejust 41 has also seen an upgrade, and receives Rolex's new Caliber 3235 movement, which provides the Datejust 41 with an increased 70-hour power reserve.

Sea-Dweller

Large Rolex Watches

The new Rolex Sea-Dweller is only slightly smaller than the Deepsea with a case diameter of 43 mm. For Baselworld 2017, Rolex made a controversial move with an updated version of their beloved Sea-Dweller dive watch. Breaking away from the Sea-Dweller’s customary 40 mm case diameter, the Sea-Dweller now dons a larger 43 mm case, further distinguishing itself from the similarly-styled Submariner, and catering perfectly to those interested in large Rolex watches. In addition to the increased size, another somewhat divisive design element was the addition of the Cyclops magnification lens to the crystal above the date window. Despite the heavily-debated updates, the one thing that almost everyone could agree on was that the red writing on the dial was highly reminiscent of the coveted vintage "Single Red" Sea-Dweller (SRSD) and "Double Red" Sea-Dweller (DRSD) models. Prior to the release of the Yacht-Master II, large Rolex watches (case diameters greater than 40 mm) were virtually non-existent.  While it may have taken a while for Rolex to join the trend, it has now become clear that the brand has fully embraced bigger timepieces. Between these new, larger references and their more classically proportioned models, Rolex now offers a fantastic range of watches in a variety of different sizes.  Please shop our selection of men's Rolex watches for sale for the best prices.
