    Fits perfectly fine. Just be sure to get a trailer to carry your arm when you get tired.

    Not enough!

    I estimate that it is about 15 feet or 4.5 meter high so about 11 feet or 3.3 meters between the straps. If I use my self as a model I am 6'4" tall or 193 cm(76") and have a 7.5" or 19 cm left wrist or it is about 6.5 cm (2.56") wide on top. 11 feet is 132 inches and 132 divided by 2.56 is 51.56 times bigger then my wrist. So basically I need to be 76" times 51.56 which is 3918.75 inches tall or 99.53 meters (326.54 feet) tall.


    Basically double the size of the Statue Of Liberty to wear that watch! By comparison King Kong was "only" 40 feet or 16 meters tall...

    EDITED: Did math error at the end by confusing feet with meters! It is the size of The Statue Of Liberty not Eiffel tower!
