Probably the best Scandinavian watch

I wanted a special memento of my favourite city, Copenhagen. This beautiful watch is exactly what Danish design is all about; beautiful, simplistic and modern. I look forward to many hyggelig moments with it.

Can definitely recommend buying from Nordgreen

Very pleased with my purchase - exactly what I was hoping it would be. Very quick delivery , well packaged. Would definitely recommend. Particularly like the scheme where part of the purchase price goes to an eco scheme.

When simplicity is everything

A very nice watch with a beautiful simple design and not that expensive as well

Mohamed El Kerdany

The ordering and processing of my order was very smooth and my order arrived in 3 days! I had made an error on entering the address and had contacted Nordgreen right away. They were able to change the address at the warehouse and sent me a confirmation which took away the anxiety.

Cynthia Lau, 28/01/2021

After seeing my not so positive online review about their lack of response to my issues with my previous watch the Nordgreen team were quick to suggest a replacement and organise delivery

For the earth

Our commitment to earth first echoes the principles of Danish society, seeking to inspire positive change by giving back to the world. Wearing Nordgreen gives you the chance to donate to one of three global sustainability organisations via our Giving Back Program.

For form and function

Created by award-winning designer Jakob Wagner, our minimalist Danish designs honour form and function in equal measure, with each having a different story to tell. These are modern classics: watches designed for everyone, everywhere.

What is the biggest size watch?

If there is one thing that we are sure of, it is how the competition would never cease.

This defines why we have seen different watches come and go as the biggest of all time, in different years.

Currently, the biggest watch in the world is the 63mm Invicta Grand Arsenal Reserve, which we are not even sure would hold that position for years to come.

Given that majority of men keep to the 40mm range of watches, we don't see how this is a practical size for most people. Depending on what you prefer, though, you might beg to differ – and that is just fine too.

At Nordgreen, we have built our big watches collection in such a way that they stay relevant for most men, do not sacrifice our usual quality, and still bring that unique look and features that make you love our watches.

Search through our catalog for these complete and suitable big watches that were not designed to win an award but to win your hearts instead.

What is considered a large men's watch?

This depends on how you look at the question.

For the sake of clarity, we approach this question individually and generally.

Generally, most men should be fine with a watch between the 36mm range through to the 46mm range. The number of men that will go for a watch collection in the higher ranges will drop drastically as compared to those in the lower range.

This tells us that watches above that 46mm mark might not be common since most men have lesser wrist sizes than that. In this general case, such a watch is considered a large men's watch.

But then, again, big case size is only considered big if it doesn't fit well. This is where the individual case comes into play.

Here, if a man's wrist will only be fitted by the large case size, we cannot say that the watch is large for them. Instead, that is the right fit for them, and they should not choose anything else.

Due to the smaller number of wearers that will go for such a large watch, though, we can generally define large men's timepieces.

A large men's watch is usually one that exceeds the 42 – 46mm case size mark. These watches can be desired by men with larger wrists or those who wear oversized watches generally.

Which brand is the best for men's big watches?

There are a lot of watch brands out there today. When you're shopping for the best big watches, your personal preferences – as well as the quality of the brand – matter.

Instead of listing several brands for you, we will take you through what to expect from the best brands.

That way, you can make a well-informed choice by yourself. Sounds good, right? Let's get to it then.

Desired Functions

A watch purchase is sometimes influenced by the aesthetics when you see what you like, but you'd most likely buy something functional also.

The same is true for your big watch – and the brands you trust to sell them to you.

That is why you should consider why you need the watch in the first place.

If you were looking for traditional, classic luxury watches with analog hands, for example, our men's watches provide all that you want in a single search. If you were looking for digital displays, smartwatches, or other functions on the watch, you would have better luck with the likes of Casio, Apple, and other relevant watchmakers.

Always identify the primary purpose of the watch so that you make a purchase that gives you an amazing value for your money.

Quality Movement

Oftentimes, you can forget to look at the movement in the watch that you are buying.

With the popularity of the quartz movement these days, that is not surprising. But then, not all quartz movements are the same.

Our Nordgreen watches are designed with the multiple award-winning Miyota Japanese quartz movement. This Japanese quartz movement is not only famed for lasting for many years with little to no maintenance but also highly accurate and precise in timekeeping.

Besides that, the movement is equipped with shock protection to safeguard your big watches against electrical surges. That is bettered by the promise of 1/3 longer battery life than most other quartz movement types on the market.

You could search for automatic watches or manual mechanical watches too. Before you go shopping for those, though, you might want to look at why they'd cost you more in the long run.

Top-Shelf Materials

What's the purpose of any watch, not even large-faced watches alone, if it's not made with premium materials?

From the case size material to the glass crystal extending into the metal straps/ bracelet or any other kind of strap material in play, the watch should not cut corners at all.

Many brands try to make cost savings by telling their customers how they have substituted a material for a less quality one, all to ensure the watch doesn't come expensive.

We don't do that here.

Nordgreen has long maintained a history of using the best metals (316L hypoallergenic stainless steel) combined with the best movement and other top-shelf parts in our watches.

We take that further with a choice of leather strap made from either genuine Italian leather or vegan leather. When choosing a bracelet material option instead, you get everything from lustrous silver, gold, rose gold, and gunmetal grey straps.

This results in a line of luxury watches that stand the test of time, offer a good value for money, and are still fairly priced.

So, how do we keep the prices of these luxury big-faced watches so low for you?

For starters, we maintain a low inventory which reduces our financial commitment to stock. We also keep the design and manufacturing process in-house, combined with our green approach, and we can pass on all that cost savings to you.

Extended Functionality

There is nothing against buying a big face watch that is as bare as they come.

In any case, where you can pull it off, take advantage of all that screen real estate with additional features on the watch.

Besides the watch brand information and the usual hour markers, a dual time bezel or display would make sense. With our Pioneer chronograph watch, you get a date window alongside three sub-dials that allows you to lap time in seconds, minutes, and hours.

You can always wear your big face watch without all of those additional extras, anyway. Whenever you believe they are features you would one day need on the watch, it is best to get the complete experience and style with a timepiece that does so much more.

Extra Protection

The bigger the watch, the bigger the surface area exposed to abuse and damages.

To mitigate that is to find a brand that cares about your watch so much; they fit it with some protection out of the box.

Here's a few pointers around what we mean according to what we do here at Nordgreen:

  • Our big watches are designed with a strong sapphire glass crystal that is resistant to scratches and won't break easily;
  • All our watches are water-resistant. With a water resistance rating of 5atm, you can go for shallow swims, a mild shower, and not bother about watch damage in the rain.
  • The watch case can take a beating without damaging the internal components of the watch. This makes some of our men's watches ideal for outdoor and servicemen usage.

Now that we have helped protect your watch against the elements and some abuse, you can take the extra step of using them right so that they stay durable.

Shop Large Watches for Men with Nordgreen

Our men's watch collection consists of three watches, some even with a unisex appeal.

Not all of these watches are designed to be large watches for men, though.

If you have been in the market for a large timepiece that doesn't look out of place on your wrist either, then you should see the options below.

The Pioneer Chronograph – Largest Nordgreen Men's Watch

We pulled out all the stops with this chronograph watch design. For that, we were rewarded with a Red Dot design award that we share with men like yourself who choose this timepiece.

Featured in only 42mm sizes, our Pioneer collection has a singular focus:

To provide men with larger wrists, the option of a tough watch that doesn't just tell the time but comes with other features too.

Over time, we have refined the chronograph watch offering by adding extra dial colors to reflect the seasons. Now, you can gaze into the crystal to see the stopwatch against any of a black, brown sunray, navy, white, or dark green sunray dial.

We improve your options and freedom of style with even more color combinations on the outside. Gunmetal grey is usually the most preferred pick on the Pioneer, but you can check out the gold case, silver frame, or rose gold finish also.

The good news doesn't end there.

You can continue the good run of customizations with a leather strap, choose our black silicone strap, pair the watch with a nylon strap of your choice or have a metal bracelet to match.

Finished with a water resistance rating to give you some peace of mind when outdoors with this fine piece, yesterday was the best time to shop this one. Fortunately, today is another day to add a minimalist chronograph watch to your cart and check it out.

Native Men's Watches – Alternative Big-Faced Watch for Men

The Native watch might not come with a chronograph, pack a date window nor have any stopwatch functions, but it is the darling of many men anyway.

It is not the traditional big watch that comes in a single large size. With the Native collection, we seek the inclusiveness of minimalist men who don't want to miss out on the simplistic style feature that we are going for here.

Thus, the Native watch can be picked up from 28mm, and it tops out at 40mm.

While 40mm is not necessarily oversized, it is large enough – depending on where you are coming from.

The point of this watch is to have a timepiece that stands out without trying too much. Where other watches go loud, we make a bold statement with a light touch of sophistication that speaks for itself in any gathering.

Speaking of gatherings, the Native watch is the large timepiece you need in the office, at dress functions, and for formal events. Designed to last against the elements, you won't go diving with this watch anytime soon, but it won't ring a warning when you get caught out in a heavy downpour either.

Worry less about trading the cool appeal for formal functions on a versatile watch like this one, sliding in fine with any outfit of the day.

As a special, we turn things up here with the blue and mother-of-pearl dials alongside the neutral black and whites.

Philosopher Men's Watches – Grow into the Big Size

Whether for casual wear or official purposes, our Philosopher watch helps you to grow into the world of large watches from wherever you are.

This watch collection is ideal for the young man that is just being shown the importance of a quality timepiece. It is equally desirable to the top executive that values what a finely-made watch it is. In between, our Philosopher series still manages to appeal to the outdoor-loving and versatile men with a thick lug, multiple strap options, and a host of finishes.

How do we make all that happen?

It starts with looking at the Native base watch, improving on it a little bit, making sure the case size doesn't go as far as the Pioneer chronograph. This balance helps us marry the best of multiple worlds together into one design.

We take things a notch further by choosing to keep this minimalist watch simple too. For added functionality, though, we knew that the date window display has to keep the funnel-style hour markers company.

As with the rest of our watches, we allow you a wide variety of colors and strap options to make this one truly yours.

From choosing to have a dark/ black base with our gunmetal grey finish to opting for a bright rose gold look, we've got you covered. Boost the functionality of your large Philosopher watch with replacement straps that you can swap out without the need for any tools.

PS If you're feeling extra daring, check out the Philosopher watch under our bronze men's watch collections. Don't say we didn't do anything for you now.

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 to design something beautiful that fits in with the spirit of hygge.

This Scandinavian principle 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.

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 exceptional attention to detail.

Don't forget to check out our "bundle deals" for great offers on watches and extra straps together.

When it comes to big face watches, Australia, Canada, and the US are covered by our extensive shipping policies. So, you can order your watch to wherever you are!
