    Suggestions for vintage watch 40mm +

    I'm looking to see your vintage watches for the larger wrist.
    40mm+ a must.
    Thanks.

    Ah, one of my favorite questions.

    Generally they will be divers or chronographs. Here are the ones I own. Also, some 38mm watches with a thin bezel appear just as large as a 40mm diver watch, if not larger.

    Here is a 38mm chronograph that seems quite large on the wrist because of the extremely narrow bezel.

    OK, if that means you're not interested in diver watches, that's a helpful distinction, because frankly most of the larger vintage watches fit into that category. In that case, you are probably going to be looking mainly at chronographs. There are also some 1970s models with large cushion cases.

    Absolutely, 42mm or so I believe. A "grail" watch for me, no doubt. Of course, I think only 700 or so were produced, so you need to be patient, and save your pennies.
