How to Measure Your Wrist

In order to select the correct band length for your wrist, you'll need to know your wrist size.

Measure your wrist with a soft tape measure around the part of your wrist that you like to wear your watch.

If you don't have a soft tape measure handy, you can measure it by wrapping a piece of string or ribbon around the part of your wrist that you like to wear your watch. Mark the length and measure it with a ruler in inches. This is your wrist size.

If your wrist size falls in between 2 lengths (ie. a 6.25" or 7.0" wrist), you have to know your preference - would you enjoy a shorter band with less tail, or a longer band with more tail?

Depending on your style, remember to consider if you like to wear your watch looser in the Summer than in the Winter.

Upgrade Your Look with a Butterfly Buckle

A Butterfly Buckle is a clasp on your band that makes your watch easier to take on and off. A butterfly buckle replaces a normal buckle on your watch band so it's always perfectly sized and easier to clasp. Set it once and it's done. It can also help your band last longer. The downside is that it’s a bit bulkier on the inside of your wrist.

Must be purchased separately - Available for our 35mm, 36mm and 38mm watches.

What's Special About a Celeste Watch
What's special about a Celeste Watch?
  • Every watch dial is handcrafted in our studio in Oregon. Dials are primarily abalone shell and/or Mother of Pearl inlays but many also contain wood and metal pieces. 
  • Watch cases are polished 316L hypoallergenic stainless steel. 316L is the hardest stainless steel available so our watches is considered very durable.
  • Movements are Swiss made and of high quality. The battery life is approximately 18 months from the time of assembly or last service.
  • Every watch has a Sapphire crystal. The crystal or glass on your watch case is extraordinarily scratch-resistant. Sapphire has a value of 9 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. This makes it the 3rd hardest natural substance next to moissanite (synthetic diamonds) and diamonds. Its fracture toughness is around 4 times greater than that of Gorilla Glass. Sapphire is also clearer than glass and has less glare which allows the vibrant colors of the handcrafted watch dials to pop.
  • All Celeste watches are water resistant from 100-150 feet, depending on the size.
