Question Apple watch: specific "fit" question

First, I don't want to get into any debates or discussions about worth it or not, status seeking, Apple vs. Android, etc. there are thousands of threads and forums for that.

What I do want to know is if anyone has done one of the "try on" appointments while wearing a long sleeve dress shirt with cuffs buttoned and if the watch fit underneath like a regular watch.

I almost always wear a watch and during work hours wear long sleeved button down shirts so I have never owned any oversized watches. I have a few nice dress watches and a few sport/beater watches but they all fit under my cuffs because sometimes when I travel I switch between tshirts when size doesn't matter much and business dress with sleeves buttoned.

I have yet to see a smart watch that I want that appeals to me visually as well as functionally, always one or the other.

So that was a long preamble to a simple question: has anyone fit an Apple watch under buttoned cuffs? If so, which size watch and which band?

Isn't that going to depend on the circumference of your wrist?

Yes, you're right. I have what I'd consider an average sized wrist, so ... Yeah, can an averge guy wear one these with a dress shirt. Actually.. I"ll take anyone who can wear one with a dress shirt.

It's not that big, as compared to watches today.

So unless your dress shirt is some weird techno thing with elastic cuffs, you should be fine.

the case is 10.5mm thick, so compare that to what you're wearing now...

Aaaah... so rational! Thank you...yes, I suppose it will fit. That's only about 1MM thicker than my the watch I'm wearing today.
