Guys, come on... i have a 53mm Citizen dive watch and it feels small, i have seen 56 and 58mm Invicta's and OK, they are huge, but all you guys talking about a 46mm watching being large, and a 48mm watch being "huge" come on. My wife has a 46mm womens Rolex, i want to get a Breitling but they are all just tiny, on me it looks like a womans watch, Breitling needs to come out with at least a 53mm model for us larger guys. Im 6"0 and 240 lbs with big wrists, not fat at all, just solid and work out. Frustrated i want a Breitling Super Avenger but they are made for women (it seems). I hate to see the women's sizes, must be like 15-20mm if the mens are 46 and 48mm.

If you like big dials and are willing to look outside of Breitling then Audemars Piguet and Panerai might be up your alley.

The Royal Oak offshore dial size is a 44 mm but the case with the lugs make the thing look huge.

Also Panerai watches wear quite big.

The Emergency is Breitling's largest current watch I believe

At 51mm it is no shrinking violet.

Avenger Hurricane is 50mm I believe - although significantly lighter in weight than most due to materials used - I would recommend the Super Avenger 2 if you are really looking to go that big. I am close to an 8 inch wrist and find the Navi 46 very comfortable.

Best Bet - stop at a boutique for an afternoon and try everything on - cant go wrong.

Good Luck!

Indeed The Emergency ll is 51mm. I have both an Avenger Hurricane 50mm & a Super Avenger and the AH is thinner so even though it is slightly bigger the fact that's its lighter and thinner means the SA feels bigger.
