On the wrist, this watch wears a touch large, due to its thickness and diameter. I can still pull it off on my average 6.5-inch wrist, but there's no forgetting it's there! Tag really did a good job with the movement on this watch. The finishing is really high quality, and the feedback on the pushers is quite nice. Overall, I would say this is a standout offering from Tag and a great everyday watch for those with larger wrists.
