    Hi everyone, sorry to jump straight in with a question but I've lost the plot with what sites I've been on! My dad has managed to get a Tissot pocket watch.

  7. Why do some watches have a lot bigger case than its movement?

    Public Forum
    For example, I know a Maurice Lacroix's Chronograph movement watch, which has a caliber movement diameter of 36.6mm, but the case diameter is 43.5mm. Is this actually related with fitting the movement (technical reasons), or did they just make it "bigger" to please people with big wrists?
