This has been the trend now for a number of years. Watches in general are getting bigger and women have graduated to Men’s Rolex watches. The women’s size watches are sooo tiny in comparison that I’m not surprised at all.
“Reading a dial within a 26mm case is time consuming”
Reading a dial within a 26mm case is time consuming in my opinion. You have to raise your hand all the way to your face, allow your eyes to adjust to it, and only then will you be able to see what time it is. Which in actuality, is still faster then pulling out your cell phone, but some people would rather do that even when wearing such a small watch. If you have a small wrist, you need a smaller watch. That I get, but if your an average size wrist maybe it’s time to start thinking bigger.
Most Popular Rolex Watches among women are the Rolex Daytona and the Rolex President. Both are on the middle upper price point, have a good size case diameter much larger then the women’s rolex watches, and have a sense of “strength” to them. That “strength” and leadership quality makes a statement when the watches are worn by women. It’s big, bold, and takes a lot of confidence for a women to wear the Men’s watches out. Which I think indicates that women themselves are actually feeling this way. A great progression starting to be apparent in our modern days of society.
We’d love to open up the floor to all you women wearing men’s size watches. If you have a picture of yourself wearing a “Men’s Size Rolex” watch then send us your pictures, and we’ll update this post with them!
