Perhaps stunned by the WOW factor of the watch, most of us in Dubai love the look of the Master Compressor Extreme World Chronograph, and from chatting with fellow journalists, most of us like the size (I remember except for one Taiwanese Journalist, who think it is too big).

But seriously, can anyone wear a 46.3mm watch? Personally, I think the watch NEEDS the size (not just the functional reasons elaborated) and anything smaller, it would have looked much less impressive (did I mention I am not that young?, so the legibility helps).

But a taste for big watches (or small watches) are highly subjective, I have friends who think anything above 38mm is ridiculous and others (many more in Singapore) who won't wear anything below 42mm.

The most objective way is to judge for yourself from the following photographs (I suspect those who find it too big will still do and those who like big watches will remain crazy about bigger watches - certainly my intention is not to change your mind, but in my mind, Magali looks gorgeous with the Extreme World Chrono !)
