When is Big too BIG!?

So an unexpected and very welcome father's day present! My observant wife had noted my recent interest in the Timex Expedition Grid Shock so suggested the offspring purchase it for me.

I'm very happy! Strongly built with all the necessary functions, indiglo and 100m of water resistance.

The elephant in the room is, no pun intended, it is bloody massive!

It dwarfs my existing casios and is certainly bigger than all the g shocks in particular the squares which I really like. I've never owned a Timex before do that's another box ticked.

So I'm interested on your take on watch size? When is big too big?

My wrist size is a little over 7 inches for reference..

Interesting it’s wide but that doesn’t  bother me like when the large lug to lug hangs over the wrist on some watches. 

·

I've only been wearing it a couple of hours but it seems comfortable so far. It's a big boy though! I wear reading glasses so the big display is a positive for me. Seems to have positive reviews from what I have seen and tough enough for my purposes. Never had a timex before and I'm after one of their mechanicals at some point.

that's nothing compared to this one which I assume around 60mm+ width lol 🤣🤣

I think it's a positive bold, in-your-face beast. If there's any watch that will start a conversation with others...it's that grand Expedition sitting on your wrist. Wear it out-and-about and have some fun! Feel like you're Corporal Hicks killing some baddies like in Aliens!

It's only too big if it's uncomfortable. 😁 Looks cool!

·

True! Comfortable thus far but I haven't run or swum with it yet!

75mm vs 36mm on my 7 1/2 inch wrist. 75 is borderline too big. LOL 😂

I would absolutely wear that badass watch. Looks like you could call down the Hammer of Dawn with that bad boy.

I would say 91mm is definitely too big! 😂

Seriously, my largest watch is my Casio Pro Trek PRW2500, and it is borderline too big for my taste.

Image

It is just over 50mm, so it is the same size as the Expedition Grid.

·

It's big for sure. Given with love.  A statemen piec .  Own it when you wear it !

Yep that's a big boy too and probably harder to wear? The Expedition seems to be easier to wear than it looks as the lug to lug is not too bad ( I haven't measured it yet. Its obviously very wide but that sits OK on the wrist so far.
