I was going to go for a Rolex, but I think that it's a bit much for where I work and might raise some eyebrows..so I've opted to go for a Ballon Bleu. I haven't tried it on yet..may be going today.So, which size ?? the medium or large?

thanks for your advice!!!

I think the Medium is more "classic". I say that because I think someday this big watch trend will pass.

Medium. I tried on the Large & it looks rediculous on me - even if you shorten the links, it's so big that the face pokes out over the edges of my wrist - looks like I'm a little kid wearing my dad's watch.

Ok I just tried them both on and I actually like the larger one!!
And they did give me 10% off the price.

I adore my Large. I've loved men's watches since high school, which was 20 years ago! You can see mine on my avatar, or in the Cartier thread.

Not yet..still contemplating..this is the most money I've ever spent on any luxury good and then I'll be soo banned for the rest of the year...
and I think they had the wrong price on the large...they had it marked $5650 and still 10% off..

I know, it's a big deal, trust me, I get that. All I can say to enable you is say that I am happy EVERY SINGLE TIME I look at it, and I think I might (gasp) love it more than my Love bracelet.

I'm a sucker for the date window too...but I dunno..the medium one didn't really WOW me in anyway..kind of like...yeah, it's there..I guess..understated elegance..in the long run the medium probably would be better? Having a hard time convincing myself..:) I'll have to go back and try again.....and again..I don't think I'll be spending this kind of money on another watch for a long time..
