Will your watches fit small and large wrists?

Yes, they will! Our wooden band watches fit wrist sizes as small as approximately 4inches and can be extended nearly infinitely to ensure proper fitment on your wrist. Check out our wooden watch band resizing tutorial here. Our leather band watches are equally as versatile and fit up to approximately 9-10” wrists depending on the specific model. Unlike wooden watch bands however, leather bands do not offer the ability to increase the length by adding additional links.
