    Watch (brands) for larger wrist?

    Hello, I'm 17 and never owned a watch before. I looked into some watches, below 200€ nad quickly noticed I need to be careful about diameter size, because my wrist circumference is quite large: 21cm (8.25inch). I'm actually quite skinny and tall so I don't want to wear anything too bukly, but rather a stylish yet affordable watch. Seiko 5 sadly has mostly 37mm watches and according to some website I read that, because of my wrist size I should wear from 39.5mm to 46mm, I don't know how accurate this is tho.
    So which brands do have watches that would be a bit larger (about 42mm+ diameter) and are not too bulky.

    Seiko has some that size. Probably your best bet. You can get a lot of watch under $200. For instance the SKX is 42mm and about $175
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    Seiko Turtle and Samurai are larger. My wrist is 7.75 inches and both fit me well.

    I have an 8" wrist and find that tool watches are best in the 40-44mm range for me, and dress watches in the 38-40mm range. You are probably right around those ranges since you are taller and thin.

    For a dive watch I highly recommend the Glycine Combat Sub. Swiss made, 42mm but thinner than the Seiko SKX (which I also recommend). Although it's above your price range, your can get them around $325 if you negotiate with watchgooroo on eBay with a factory warranty. You can also sometimes find them at Costco under $300.
