    Monta triumph on a big wrist

    Anyone with a 7.25-7.5 inch wrist have a Monta triumph? Thoughts and pictures?
    Generally speaking...thoughts on the Triumph vs, say, the Tudor ranger?

    Triumph over the Ranger for me easily, doubly so if it's going to be worn on the bracelet. The finishing on the Monta is well above that of the Tudor.

    I would duck if you threw a Tudor Ranger at me, especially on the bracelet.
    But the Monta, I would catch that one.

    I have never seen or tried a Monta on before.

    As you know, I am a big fan of non-date Watches, so Tudor Ranger for me!

    How about the big wrist thing with the Monta only at 38.5?

    Re: Monta triumph on a big wrist

    The Monta Triumph is intruiguing to me as a microbrand that by most accounts I've read has finishing equivalent to the big boys (I've never seen one in the metal). Still, personally I'd go for the Ranger for 2 reasons:

    1. It's a no-date (I'm with Dan on this).
    2. Heritage, which to me is more important than Monta being better finished.


    Personally I found the Ranger just a tad big for me as an all-dial watch, but since OP has concerns the Monta may be too small for his wrist (and I have a feeling from looking at the case and lug shape that it will wear small for it's size), Ranger would be my choice.

    Could you elaborate on this, is this based in part on the extensive use of beveling? Is there a specific Tudor you're comparing this to?

    The Monta triumph case is indeed exceptional with all that beveled edges and thin profile. However the dial and thick hands/markers design is a miss IMO - too generic and sporty for such a nice case. The date at 6 looks disproportionately small compare to the rest of the dial.

    I would take the Ranger over the Triumph - much more original and consistent design.

    The Ranger is "fine" but there's nothing exceptional about it whatsoever for $3K. No beveled edges on the case sides or lugs, and the brush work seems nice enough, but is not blowing me away at all. The bracelet also seems like a complete afterthought, especially considering they couldn't even be bothered to do fitted end links.



    The Monta is just in a different league. Look at the beveling on the outside of the case and lugs, and the inside of the lugs. The sides of the bezel are very similar on both, but I definitely prefer the Monta's radial brushing on top. It's not up there with something like an Omega A-T, but it's much closer to that level than the Tudor is. On the bracelet it's no contest. Monta put a lot of effort into theirs, Tudor put no effort in.
