Large men’s watches are overlooked, which is really weird because they are such an imposing type of watch. Great men’s watches are bold, daring and, believe it or not, practical (we’ll get to that for a bit). What is a large men’s watch? Any watch with a case size of 44mm or more.
Why choose a large men’s watch?
There are many reasons to wear a large men’s watch, and they can range from appearance to style. If you have a large wrist, a large men’s watch is more proportioned (and probably more comfortable) than a small men’s watch. Strenuous outdoor activities like cross-country running, diving, rock climbing, and more mean you’re constantly on the move. A large men’s watch with its large, easily readable dial, allows you to quickly read the time without losing speed. Another reason could be that some men prefer oversized watches. And some guys like a little flash on their wrists.
We have found great men’s watches in all price ranges and styles. Need a great smartwatch for men? We know it. Are you looking for a great dress watch for men? Understood. Need a very large men’s watch for swimming, AKA a diving watch? Yes, I have that and more. Check out our list of the best great men’s watches to buy right now.
1. Nixon Ripley Watch
If you’re in an office during the week and bushwhacking on the weekends, the Nixon Ripley is your companion on and off the trail. This digital watch goes from “City mode” to a digital double chronograph which is also an altimeter and a temperature gauge. Likewise, it has a second time zone and a built-in alarm clock. The only thing he doesn’t do is make coffee. With everything going on, it makes sense that the watch face is a good size 47mm. And don’t worry about bumping into any objects, the case is covered with an impact resistant module, has a stainless steel top plate, and hey, you don’t have to worry about getting it wet because it’s also resistant to water up to 100 meters / 10 ATM.
