What is so special about large high-end watches? Well, it is certainly a matter of taste, but let’s face it, large timepieces with large dials offer more functionality and convenience. However, it is worth noting that a “large watch” means significantly different things to each one of us. Thus, for some people, a large luxury watch is a timepiece measuring 42mm; for others, it should be no less than 46mm in diameter. Moreover, almost all of the new models can be called large if compared with vintage watches measuring 35-37mm. Anyway, whether you like them or not, large high-end watches are on trend these days. Here are just several examples of these stylish timepieces.
