Here is the best way to measure your wrist:
Using a flexible tape measure (sewing type), wrap around your wrist where your watch would go (snug, and with no gaps but not tight).
If you don’t have one of these tape measures, you can always do the same with a piece of string and then over lay the length on a tape measure or ruler.
Remember the Carpenter's Adage: MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE!!
Here is a handy chart that I've been using for determining your best strap lengths. This chart is designed primarily with larger and thicker Panerai style straps.
Wrist size Strap length (Long side/Short side)
6.0" - 6.5" (15cm - 16.5cm)....= 115/70
6.6" - 6.9" (16.6cm - 17.5cm) = 125/75
7.0" - 7.5" (17.6cm - 19cm)... = 130/80
7.6" - 7.9" (19.1cm - 20cm)... = 135/85
8.0" - 8.5" (20.1cm - 21.5cm) = 140/90
8.6" - 9.0" (21.6cm - 23cm)... = 150/100
Please note: If I'm building a thinner dress type watch strap, I may recommend a shorter strap length. If you're strap is going to be paired with one of our aftermarket deployment clasps, I will recommend your strap be shorter than what is recommended here. If you'll be using an Omega, Tag Heuer or Breitling style deployment clasp where the long end tucks to the inside of the wrist, then the proportions of the long side/short side strap will also be completely different as well.
As you know all Dangerous9straps are bespoke made and the length I recommend for your strap is designed to provide a good fit based upon the wrist measurement you provide. If you tell me your wrist is 7.5 inches, and your wrist measurement is actually 6.5 inches, most likely the strap I make for you won't fit properly or won't fit you at all!! In most instances, once your strap is made and it does not fit, I won't be able to change the length of your strap, When you order, and pay for your strap, you are accepting that your strap will be built to the length as indicated on your invoice. If the strap is made too long or too short, in most instances changes cannot me made.
* I will not re-build your strap for free.
* If your strap can be adjusted, I will not do this work for free - I will charge you for my shop time and return shipping.
Since most of my orders are taken via e-mail, I'm really relying on you, my customer to provide me an accurate, honest wrist measurement. Come on guys, you can do this!!
