Yep. Even when I started collecting 20 years or so ago, 35-38mm was about the standard size men's dress watch, most Submariners being sold were 40mm. I had an Orient World Timer that was around 43mm and I can recall thinking it was huge.

I much prefer 37-38mm now. Biggest watch I have is a pilot watch at 44mm and itís LARGE. Have several others at 42, but even those seem large sometimes.
Case and especially lug design can make a huge difference.
