I keep seeing the length in watches listed as women's. What does this mean? What is the standard length? It would be nice to know if the watch would fit or not.

That really dosen't help. What is the "standard" for amazon's "standard women's length?"

Judging from three of my wife's watches the average woman's band seems to be about 8 inches long, not including the watch or approximately 200mm.

Women's Standard Watch Band Lengths
From 6 3/4" to 8". (depending on style and manufacturer)
Unfortunately, very few of the watches listed on Amazon have longer or adjustable bands. Avon has a variety of watches for women with 9" bands.

They may come in these sizes but all the watches I've seen on Amazon are listed as 'standard' women's size, which tells me absolutely nothing!

I agree with BrandyM7 - standard tells you nothing, especially with Timex, where the strap on one watch can be more than an inch longer than another with the same type of band.

Agree the most important measurement of the watch is not included in the description. So some of us like me are not going to bother buying any watches from here. Simple.

I have tiny wrists; 5.5", not counting the watch. I absolutely agree that the band length is the most important thing to list. It's the first thing I look at as so many watch bands aren't adjustable these days. Hopefully anyone who does the listing for watches will see this discussion, and will be careful to include the actual correct band length. How many people actually bother to say anything? Not many. Most will just click out to a different watch. Sale lost!

When will consumer's see some changes to this common problem? I would like to order a watch but I won't until I know its going to fit. I am looking at a substantial watch purchase as well. The women's band size stated in inches will determine which watch will work for me. For example, if I need a larger fit I certainly wouldn't order the same watch with a band size needed for the lady with 5.5" wrists. Is anyone in Customer Service looking at these posts? ... and if so, can Amazon please respond?? Thank you in advance for a timely response.

I complete concur with Kathy's post. This should be obvious to sellers and manufacturers. Why can you not put watch bank size in centimeters, inches, or something measurable?

Still does NOT answer the question--How long is a women's standard or man's watch band?

20 cm, or 3.5x3x2.6 inches?

Agreed. Will not purchase a watch from here if the length of the band is not listed. I live in a town without a jewelry store and do not want to have to travel to have it sized.

I am so frustrated that band length is not given. Amazon is so good in describing other items. What's the deal? I will have to look elsewhere. There is no way I can order a watch without that one important detail.

I know it's not the best solution, but I googled the product name and found the info on another website.

I have a drawer full of women's watches that have 7 inch wrist circumference that are too small. So I ordered a men's watch--huge! So irritated by the "Women's Standard" phrase--useless information.

This is a huge problem that I'm surprised Amazon hasn't fixed. Amazon is a huge retailer. Demand manufacturer's submit band lengths or don't let them peddle their goods on your site.

Manufactures please put the length of a woman's watch band in inches that's the way most Americans measure. Thank you

Well, the reason I was looking for this info was because I was looking at watches on Amazon, found several I like but now sure of the fit. As many of you have said, what the heck does "Woman's Standard" mean on band length. I already have one I ordered from them that was to short and is now waiting to be a Christmas present for my niece next Christmas. Guess I won't be ordering a watch from them again.

that is so correct, I have tiny wrist, just went and checked it and the one was 5 inch's. but didn't want to pay $50 for one, might have to but still they need to put the length of band on the description, sale lost if don't. thanks for your post
