Size Matters: The Great Debate Between Small & Oversized Watches

In my book, there should be a ticker for every occasion. And there’s a time and place to rock your biggest, most in-your-face piece… and other instances when a smaller-faced number is more appropriate. But are these rules the same for both men and women? No. I present to you, the watch-personality list:

BLG- 1566 Boutique Support- Nixon Watches


For Men: A super chunky watch (the kind that doubles as an uppers workout) belongs in the office.

For Women: That larger-than-life timepiece lets the world know you are a serious fashionista. The loads of bangles you should be layering it with are also a dead giveaway.


For Men: Don’t be fooled by the “bigger is better” trend that has taken over men’s wristwear. A well-balanced watch-to-wrist ratio shows the world your more tailored, refined side.

For Women: Work the skirt suit and slip on a sleek, rectangular-faced watch (no bigger than the width of your wrist). It gives you a powerful, put-together presence without sacrificing style.

Our Nixon Boutique opens Saturday, June 29, at 11AM ET.
