The biggest watches now on the market are not quite as big as their predecessors from the mid-2000s, yet they are still plenty big enough. A big watch is typically one with a case that measures from 40 to 44 mm wide. Such big cases tend to be thicker as well. Back in the mid-2000s, it was not unusual to see watches with cases measuring up to 48 mm wide.
By comparison, a typical men's watch today comes in around the 37-39 mm range. This gives you a good idea of how large a big watch might be. Also note that big watches are generally designed for men. Rarely are they dress watches. Instead, they tend to be more functional and targeted to key audiences.
Bigger men with bigger arms are a great example. Bodybuilders are one type of customer that would appreciate a big watch. Both groups of men appreciate big watches because these are more appropriate to the size of the arm and wrist.
Also known as oversized watches in some circles, big watches are not better or worse than other types of watches in terms of function. So it comes down to a fashion choice. For some individuals, going big is the only way to go. A big watch stands out with its big case and bulky profile.
Be advised that there is no hard and fast rule defining a big watch as opposed to one that is average or standard size. The 40-45 mm guide is just general advice. Ultimately, you have to be comfortable with whatever watch you decide to wear. If big is your thing, there are plenty of choices for you to work with.
