Watches For Men With Big Wrists
Let’s face it. When you’re a guy with big wrists, buying watches can be a little tricky. You want the perfect mix of style and functionality, but you also want something that’s not going to cut off your circulation. Luckily, there are several watches on the market designed to compliment well-endowed arms. If you’re not interested in compromising style for comfort, check out this list of five watches for men with big wrists.
Invicta Men’s 12554 Pro Diver Ocean Ghost Watch
One glance at the Invicta Men’s Ocean Ghost, and you just might fall in love with it. It is a part of Invicta’s Pro Diver Collection, thus making it shock resistant and waterproof up to 660 feet. This elegant piece features Japanese Quartz movement and a brushed stainless steel case that transitions into a solid, surgical steel band. Underneath an anti-reflective flame-fusion crystal window, a dark black dial with silver toned hands and markers decorate the face. Additional features include a unidirectional turning bezel, a date display, Tritnite® hands, and a screw down enamel crown with inset logo. Invicta has updated their “Ocean” line a few times over the years, and the reception has remained strong, especially for those of us with big wrists. The 49mm case diameter is above average, and the 22 mm band is a great complement to the larger dial. If you’re looking for sophisticated, but uncomplicated timepiece that sits comfortably on larger wrists, this one is an excellent contender.
Seiko Men’s SRP637 Prospex Dive Watch
Seiko Men’s SRP637 Dive Watch is a stainless steel powerhouse. For water lovers, this timepiece is water resistant and dive-proof up to 660 feet. It features a thick stainless steel case, with a scratch resistant Hardlex crystal dial window. A bold black dial lies under lumibrite hands and markers, which glow brightly against the dial in the dark. The band is a polished stainless steel with very little space between the links. This is great for preventing those pesky pinches that occur with larger watches and arm hair. The SRP637 is powered both by automatic and hand-winding technology, thus making it battery-less and self-sustaining. This model has clearly been heavily influenced by Seiko’s famous Black Monster, and the style, comfort, and mechanics of this timepiece definitely make it a worthy replacement.
Citizen Men’s Nighthawk Eco-Drive Watch BJ7000-52E
The Citizen Men’s Night Hawk Eco-Drive is a powerful timepiece packed with a variety of sophisticated features. It’s great for athletes because it’s waterproof up to 660 ft. However, it also possesses functions that are beneficial to pilots or aeronauts. The 43mm diameter case is more subtle than the other options on this list, but still very well suited for larger wrists. It also has a pilot’s inner rotating slide rule bezel that is operated by the crown at 8 o’clock. The slide rule not only allows one to calculate the time it would take to reach certain distances, it also allows for the conversion of integers to decimals, weight conversion, and complex calculations. Non-pilots will appreciate its low light readability due to luminous hands and index markers. Its dual time capabilities 12/24 (GMT) also widens its appeal. Additionally, its unique features include light powered Eco-Drive Caliber B877, which charges the watch through solar power. A low-charge window and power saving functions are available on the device to keep it working optimally throughout the day. Visually, the BJ7000-52E is stunningly elegant. Not only is it comfortable for larger wrists, it is sure to attract a lot of compliments for the wearer.
Invicta Men’s 6981 Pro Diver Watch
Invicta‘s Men’s Pro Diver Collection Chronograph Black Dial Black Polyurethane Watch is a luminous black and gold masterpiece of modern sophistication. This high-performance sports watch is waterproof up to 330 feet. It features a sleek display that contains a scratch-resistant mineral crystal to protect the dial. Its gold bezel contains gold Arabic numerals on a stainless steel black ring. A trio of sub-dials decorate the face with date information and chronographic functionality. With a case diameter of 48 mm, the overall size and presence of the watch is a better fit for larger wrists, and comes at a very reasonable price point. This particular pro diver is also one of Invicta’s hottest selling models, and will probably not be available for too much longer.
Suunto Core Outdoor Sports Watch
Suunto’s Core Watch is feature-packed. It’s a watch that’s perfect for the ultimate outdoors man. Imagine being able to sense an approaching storm, even when it’s bright and sunny outdoors. With Suunto’s intelligent Storm Alarm, changes in the air pressure will alert the watch’s sensors, thus alerting you. Need a barometer? Check. A thermometer? Check. A weather trend indicator, digital compass, and altimeter? Check, check and check. Whether you’re hiking, biking, or camping, this watch is an all-in-one tool to keep you safe and informed.
The Suunto Computer Watch has a rugged finish that comes in several colors. The only downside is that the band is not as durable as its stainless steel competitors. Luckily, it’s easy to replace. The watch’s traditional features include a date and dual time display, along with an alarm. It also consists of sunrise and sunset predictions, a depth meter for swimming up to 30 ft deep, and multi-language functions in English, German, French and Spanish. With a case diameter of 49 mm this watch is only recommended for larger wrists, which in this case serve as a golden ticket to a very unique and sophisticated watch.
