Thumbs down Yes, pure madness

February 13, 2013 12:58AM
I've found the only watches I can really pull off bigger than 40-42mm are Casios.

My 42mm Tourby Marine was too big (6-7/8" wrist at that time) even though it had down-turned lugs.

What I've found happens with the big watches is that if the lugs are about as wide as the top of my wrist, then the bracelet goes straight down, and it has to be uncomfortably tight in order for the watch head not to rotate around my wrist.

Nato is a pretty skinny strap, if anything I would try a Zulu that is a little thicker and stiffer.

I actually have this exact model. It definitely has some wrist presence Jpeg Attachments

Vedry sharp looking Invicta, I've considered that particular model in the past...

Paul J Costa70February 13, 2013 01:23PM

My observation is that watch size has peaked and is devolving back to more moderate dimensions. (n/t)

It is looking very good however out of my "wrist league" (n/t)

My word of caution: NATO and NATO-style straps make all watches wear bigger.
