Big Watch Cases a Missed Opportunity?

Discussions with Professor Birkin threw up a very interesting point. With such big cases available now is anyone actually taking advantage of them to pack in more complications or adopt larger systems for improving accuracy that need more space?

The answer, it seems, is a resounding "No."

Why not? Well, it gives me the impression that big watches aren't here to stay so no one is going to invest in movements that they couldn't subsequently package into 36-38 mm cases.......

Large oversized cases/dials with normal sized movements are a pet peeve of mine. I hate it when I see either a date window floating in the middle of a dial, or look at a display back to see a big spacer. :-(
