Large Mens Watches - Big Faced for Big Wrists

The phrase, “Go big, or go home” is what you’ll be saying when you wear Nordgreen’s large men’s watches. Whether you have the attitude or enjoy the bold feeling of wearing a large men’s watch, we can satisfy your craving for a generously sized timepiece.

If you want to ease into the larger sized watch designs, then you’ll enjoy Nordgreen’s Philosopher, Native, and Infinity watches in 40 mm with a substantial case thickness of 8.35 mm.

Drawing attention to yourself has never been easier than with our 42 mm Men’s Pioneer Chronograph watch. Defined by its red-tipped second and minute hands, which are symbolic of Denmark’s innovations on the wind-turbines, the Pioneer still represents a minimalist approach to the chronograph. Nordgreen’s Pioneer Chronograph is the perfect size for going big on your timepiece.

If you’re sturdily built, you need a large wristwatch. It's not the strap size that matters much – you can always get a new strap. What is essential, though, is that the face is nice and big. Otherwise, it'll look too dainty on your wrist.

Unfortunately, the market’s selection of watches for men with big wrists is limited. Many manufacturers aim for more of a unisex look. That means that the dials are smaller so that they’ll also suit a smaller wrist.

Men’s watches for large wrists are typically challenging to find, or too expensive. We're changing that by making three different sized dials. Choose between 32mm, 36mm, and 40mm for our Native and Philosopher ranges. Or stick to our Pioneer model with its large 42mm dial.

Any of our larger dial sizes could be considered big men watches or watches for fat wrists, but our latest release, the Pioneer, outshines the rest in this department.

We’ve kept things simple by trimming our range to four models, the Pioneer, Native, Infinity, and Philosopher

Big Faced Watches designed by Jakob Wagner

These models owe their unique good looks to the famous Scandinavian designer, Jakob Wagner. When we explained our design idea, Jakob was extremely excited. Our goal was to design something beautiful that fit in with the spirit of hygge.

This Scandinavian principle is one that has recently taken the world by storm. In Copenhagen, though, it's a way of life. Hygge means embracing a simpler lifestyle. The idea is that if your life is too cluttered, you'll miss out on those little small details that make it so unique.

Now, with our watches for big men, you never have to miss another minute again. Our designs are timeless and elegant. They're simple, and that's what makes them so special. They'll look as good on you in the office as they do on a date.

And, if you want a little variety, all the straps are interchangeable. Swap out the fine leather strap for a nylon one if you’re heading out camping. Or use the stainless-steel straps to create a whole new look. There are several options to choose from.

Just match up the dial size with the correct strap. You’ll see your options under “straps” on our site. Don’t forget to check out our “bundle deals” for great offers on watches and extra straps together.   

You'll never be at a loss for the perfect office look again. There's nothing wrong with wearing a black watch strap with a navy suit. Matching that suit with a navy option instead, though, subtly conveys an exceptional attention to detail.

We also have an alternative called Large Women's Watches.

Men’s Watches for Large Wrists

What makes our range special is that we have so many choices to customize your order. With customizations to just about every part possible, our four models offer endless variation. We know that you’ll find the perfect match.

Here are the possibilities – not all options are available with all models, but most are:

  • The dial color can be changed: Available in white, navy, and black. The black dial in a gold case is an eye-catching combination made to impress.
  • Swap the strap: You have options here as well – leather, stainless steel mesh, rubber, vegan leather, and nylon. 
  • Choose a different color for the case: The case can be in gunmetal, silver, gold, or rose gold.

Now that we've gone over the customization, let's look at the design options.

Our Big Faced Watch Collection

The Pioneer

This new model is a triumph of Danish design. The face features two dials. The left one counts off the seconds. The other features a stopwatch. The date is featured at the bottom of the dial. It’s stylish, big, and packed with features you’ll use.

The case is solid stainless steel. With the sapphire glass front, this model is designed for the man who is hard on watches. 


    The Native

    This is our classic option, perfect for those who love a minimalist approach. The dial only features the hour markings, not the minute markings. There are no other markings on the face, and no date featured either. This watch has lugs and clean, clear lines.

    The design combines timeless features with the optimistic aesthetic that makes Copenhagen so unique. It has a well-rounded case and elevated design. The dial is kept clean and uncluttered with invisible minute marks.

      The Philosopher

      What makes this design special is that the dial features a sharp curve. This extra detail makes a lot of impact. This model does have lugs, a section for the date, and a second hand.


        If you’re not a fan of lugs, this could be the right choice for you. The Infinity offers classic styling. The minutes and hours are marked on the dial. There is no third hand to tick off seconds, or a date featured. 

          Watches for Men with Large Wrists

          Our mission is to build a brand as iconic as Rolex, but a lot more affordable and sustainable as well.

          We started by creating the perfect name for our brand. “Nord” is a nod to our Danish culture and values. “Green” relates to our emphasis on sustainability and our commitment to making the world a better place.

          Our company puts its money where its mouth is. We’ve selected three areas to focus on when it comes to social responsibility:

          • The environment
          • Education
          • Health

          By supporting us, you’re also supporting the efforts of global charities working in these areas. A portion of the proceeds from your purchase could help to fund:

          • Environmental protection programs across the world
          • Education initiatives in third-world countries to help people escape the cycle of poverty
          • Bringing sanitation to third-world countries where diseases like cholera are still endemic

          We Stand by the Quality of Our Products

          Outstanding customer service comes standard with us. We go beyond just being helpful to you when you call in, though. We start by choosing the highest-quality components for our timepieces. We then put all those components together by hand. There's simply no better way to control the quality.

          We’re not done yet – we also inspect each item before it gets shipped. Having to return an item because it’s defective is an annoyance for you. That’s why we take every precaution to make that unnecessary.

          We do stand behind our products. We offer a two-year warranty against manufacturer's defects.  If something goes wrong during that time, we will repair or replace your watch, just visit our website or your retailer to learn about returning the item.

          What Makes Our Timepieces Special?

          We only use high-quality components from reputable suppliers. Here’s the list of materials we use to keep your new timepiece ticking.

          Miyota Movements

          The quartz movement that we use in our watches accounts for their excellent time-keeping. We've partnered with Miyota because they are the premium supplier of movements worldwide. Nothing but absolute accuracy is considered good enough.

          Sapphire Glass

          Sapphire glass can stand up to a fair amount of abuse. It’s scratch-resistant and very strong.

          High-Quality Straps

          A strap is the perfect way to update a watch in seconds. Choose from:

          • High-Grade Stainless Steel: If you’re out in the field all day, you need something that’s scratch-resistant and stain-resistant. Stainless-steel ticks both boxes and looks good doing so.
          • Italian Leather: We use real, imported Italian leather because it’s the best quality. If you feed and nourish the leather regularly, it will last a lifetime.
          • Rubber: Rubber is a better option than stainless steel, where heat is a factor as rubber is a poor conductor of heat.
          • Vegan Leather: Part of our mission to protect the environment is to offer clients vegan leather. It’s comparable to “real” leather but is plant-based.

          Water-Resistant Up to Three Atmospheres

          We don't advise submerging your new watch, but all models are water-resistant up to three atmospheres. If you're caught in the rain or working in a high humidity environment, this is important.
