Bold oversized wristwatches are currently at the fashion forefront. Strapping, generously proportioned timepieces from Invicta, Swiss Legend, U-Boat, Movado, Breitling, Michael Kors, Elini Barokas, Panerai, TAG Heuer, red line and Lucien Piccard are among the best-selling timepieces in the world today.
The oversized watch trend started more than fifteen years ago with Panerai, TAG Heuer, Invicta, U-Boat and Breitling offering extra-large watches for men with cases more than 42mm in diameter and over 15mm thick. The trend soon moved into the women’s fashion arena with TechnoMarine and Michele watches introducing bold oversized “men’s” style watches for women with chronograph dials and larger case styles.
In fact, Rolex, Omega and Chopard updated their Speedmaster, Presidential and Mille Miglia men’s watch styles with distinctively feminine touches and colorful fashion straps to create new timepiece collections for women.
Men’s and ladies’ oversized watch sizes are considerably larger than they were 15 years ago. Watches 50mm or more in diameter and over 17mm thick are the popular choice for men, while women’s styles 45mm in diameter and 15mm thick are the top choice for ladies.
There is a wide variety of “big size” watches to choose from at internet retailer WorldofWatches.com, including the Invicta Bolt Reserve Men’s Chronograph. This strapping timepiece has a highly pronounced case in stainless steel and 18K rose gold plate, that is 51mm in diameter and 22mm thick.
Handsome case is presented on black polyurethane strap with stainless steel and rose gold plated accents. The stationary steel bezel with rose gold plated rope trim surrounds the chronograph dial with three subdials, luminous hands and hour markers.
Features include an automatic date calendar, small-second, 30-minute and 1/10th of a second registers. Chronograph has precise Swiss-made quartz movement inside and is water resistant up to 200 meters.
