“Jumbo” does not refer to one model or brand within the watch world. It refers to a very specific type of watches. “Jumbo” timepieces are mostly time-only models that have a significantly larger size than its contemporaries from a certain era. Let’s say that in the ‘30s 28-31mm was the size of men’s watches. So, if you found one that was 34-35mm you could consider that a “Jumbo”. Though as of lately we are calling watches that are above 36mm or so for “Jumbos” but here we have a watch which was intruduced in 1940´s and it is in a size of 37,5 mm, it is huge for the time period and definatly considered as a  “Jumbo”!
