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.

The Woman Who Loves Giraffes 

In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Dian Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, in fact, before anyone, man or woman had made such a trip, 23-year-old Canadian biologist, Anne Innis Dagg, made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to become the first person in the world to study animal behavior in the wild on that continent. When she returned home a year later armed with ground-breaking research, the insurmountable barriers she faced as a female scientist proved much harder to overcome. In 1972, having published 20 research papers as an assistant professor of zoology at University of Guelph, the Dean of the university, denied her tenure. She couldn’t apply to the University of Waterloo because the Dean there told Anne that he would never give tenure to a married woman. This was the catalyst that transformed Anne into a feminist activist. For three decades, Anne Innis Dagg was absent from the giraffe world until 2010 when she was sought out by giraffologists and not just brought back to into the fold, but finally celebrated for her work. 

In The Woman Who Loves Giraffes, an older (now 85), wiser Anne takes us on her first expedition back to Africa to retrace where her trail-blazing journey began more than half a century ago. By retracing her original steps, and with letters and stunning, original 16mm film footage, Anne offers an intimate window into her life as a young woman, juxtaposed with a first hand look at the devastating reality that giraffes are facing today. Both the world’s first ‘giraffologist’, whose research findings ultimately became the foundation for many scientists following in her footsteps, and the species she loves have each experienced triumphs as well as nasty battle scars. The Woman Who Loves Giraffes gives us a moving perspective on both. 

Giraffe numbers have plunged by up to 40% over the last 30 years from approximately 150,000 in 1985 to less than 100,000 in 2015. Their numbers are declining as a result of habitat encroachment, illegal hunting and changes like drought and global warming. 

Giraffes were only finally upgraded to “vulnerable to extinction” on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species in 2016. This categorization puts them just one ranking below “endangered”.

--------------------------------------------------

These sweet giraffe watches are works of art and perfect for everyone who loves to celebrate giraffes. Encased in a Rose Gold barrel shaped case, black time markers are included at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 to unobtrusively indicate the time.
