Are big watches over?


Chad the Watch Guy is reporting that he’s seeing a max out in big watches at 42mm which means even rappers and oligarchs won’t go around wearing pie plates on their wrists for much longer. I can handle a 50mm+ sports watch, but 42mm is a bit big for a mechanical, non? Your thoughts?

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. it is a trend started by fashion houses and writers to do something different. I bet in 2yrs razor thin 80’s style watches will be back in. I think a watch looks good at around 42-44mm. I also think it is a cost issue, big watch big bracelet, more expensive to produce. I also hate the rose gold trend. It’s just fashion bs.

  2. I agree that its getting rather excessive. I almost gagged when I saw my first Bell & Ross “wrist clock”.

    At least I know what to get Shaq for his birthday.

  3. With an 8 1/4 wrist, and 6’4″ 260, a 48mm+ watch works for me. I agree that the ‘fad’ part is silly. I saw a slight man with a monster watch and it looked like an ankle weight for training!
