Why thick watches are no good

Post by Racer-X » January 31st 2020, 3:39pm

"I’m rather fortunate in my role here at Time+Tide — I get to wear a lot of different watches. In fact, in 2019 alone I tried on and wore more than 200 different timepieces. Getting to experience this many different watches is a privilege, and while each and every one had both positives and negatives, they all need to be praised just for existing because, after all, technically speaking, wristwatches aren’t exactly essential in 2020.

That being said, however, if there was one overriding takeaway from all the timepieces I wore last year, it was this — I hate thick watches. Ugh … OK, maybe hate is too strong a word … perhaps strongly dislike is more appropriate. I also need to qualify a few things first. If a timepiece is thick for a specific reason, like to provide better water resistance, for example, then it gets a pass. In fact, any tool watch that’s on the portly side is OK in my book, as long as the extra girth serves a purpose."

Wow! James Robinson balls up his fists, throws a bunch, and doesn't pull it. Refreshing.

What constitutes thick?
An 18mm high Invicter, which you'd have to be thick to covet in the first place. Or, anything recommended by PhatKat Collections.

Or something like this:
