    I'm convinced the big watch trend is driven 95% by the casualization of the American male wardrobe. Back when everyone wore shirtsleeves all the time, a slim watch was a necessity. Now that the majority of men can - and do - wear t-shirts all the time, there is no longer any practical constraint on the size of watches. Making small things smaller is hard; making them bigger is easy.

    And then the small majority of us who do dress more formally/traditionally end up with goofy problems like this....

    Keep in mind that, worn with the same sport coat, the "looser" cuff will show more. So make sure to make up your mind early than later and get consistent cuffs from then on.
