People who love watches tend to fall into a couple of categories when selecting their favourites. Those who like their watch faces big….and everyone else. The debate can even turn a little mean-spirited – with the big watch lovers claiming that smaller watches look like children’s pieces and the smaller watch lovers imagine that their counterparts have affection for bigger watches to express a need to show off or, at worse, compensate for a parts of themselves they find lacking. While we at Watchfinder have a love of ALL watches, for the sake of this blog, we’re jumping right on board with our friends who like ‘em big. After all, just as an attitude we all should adopt with our lives, when it comes to watches it’s sometimes best to ‘go big or go home.’
Bigger = Powerful
Large watches are certainly a fashion choice for the bold. They provide a pop to any ensemble, regardless of the outfit they’re worn with. If you’ve got a watch like a Di Grisogono going with your favourite business wear for example, chances are your power suit will have an additional force draped around your wrist to give you that powerful look you’re looking for. A big watch doesn’t mean that you’re over-compensating. It means that you’re confident and don’t mind having to accessorize in a way to grab the spotlight you so rightfully deserve.
Big-Face Works for Casual Too
One of the fallacies associated with luxury watches is that they’re best worn in formal settings. Nothing could be farther from the truth…but you like bigger watches so we don’t have to tell you that! You know that a T-Shirt and Jeans night is made better with a big, bold watch like something in the Zenith watches collection. Plus if you’re out on a date or just a night on the town, do you really want to just rely on your phone for the time? Nothing is more off-putting than checking your phone constantly. Having a big bold watch keeps you in fashion and from looking rude by staring down at your phone multiple times during any occasion.
It really boils down to personal taste at the end of the day. We know watches of all sizes are beautiful. That being said, we do love nothing more than seeing our clients beam with glee as they put on their brand new, big faced watch. It’s often said that, ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder.’ When it comes to watches, there’s nothing more beautiful than having more watch to look at. A big face watch is a fashion choice for the bold and, at the end of the day, we all have enough adventure and moxy to pull off a big watch if we want to.
