    Tao International Bubble Skeleton

    Hi,

    Im interested in this watch, really like the look of it but worried about the size. I only have a 7 inch wrist so think it will look to big. Has anyone else got this watch and if so what is your wrist size and how does it look. Also how is the reliability?

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Wow! Who would have thought a 49mm watch would be so hard to read?

    A 49mm watch will look hugely out of proportion on a 7 inch wrist. Doubly so if it is as thick and bulky as many inexpensive chinese watches are. I'm especially impressed that it has: "Big Luminor Rose Golg Plate Hands". BBig Le Golgig Luminor Rose Golg Plate Hands BBig Luminor Rose Golg Plate Handsig Luminor Rose Golg Plate Hands

    However it's probbably no more of a ripoff of the Corum design than the uncountable copies of the Rolex Sub, President and GMT.

    Ok will give it a miss then on the size thanks. Im not really looking for a Chinese watch I just liked the look of the Corum bubble and came across that. Thought that a chinese one might be ok as a general wear watch, I work in a engineering environment so wouldnt risk wearing a decent watch.

    I will continue my impossible search of trying to find a Swiss Eta movement skeleton in my budget.
