    thoughts on the ball trainmaster moonphase?

    anyone have this watch? i have a small wrist (see user name) and even though it's 40mm, just wondering if it wears bigger or smaller. anyone know the lug-to-lug on this thing? i'll probably wear it on a strap if I end up getting it, not a bracelet guy usually.

    pros and cons from owners would be great. thanks guys

    Wears LARGE for a 40 believe me. I'm a big guy (6'4' 235) with wrists about 7 1/2 - 7 3/4 inches.

    Pictures can be deceiving but for a sense of scale that hand holding the rod? That hand can palm a basket ball...…...

    They are beautiful watches but if your wrist is a great deal smaller than mine it's going to look huge for you.

    Not an owner; however have seen it in person.

    Beautiful watch and fits my 17cm wrist nicely (and I'm not fond of overly large watches). Don't underestimate the bracelet though; I have the trainmaster legend with the same bracelet and its well executed and high quality. It looks better in the flesh than on photos.

    Here's a 39mm Carrera and a 41mm Aquaracer on the same wrist.

    The Trainmaster wears bigger due to the very thin bezel which makes the dial seem huge.

    You are welcome munchkin :)

    I tossed in the pics of the Carrera because it gives an idea of how my wrists are formed. They narrow at the junction between the ham hand and forearm. I really liked my moon phase for almost 2 years but replaced it with that nondescript Aquaracer. The Aquaracer measures 41mm which is actually larger than my Trainmaster but the Tag looks and wears smaller.
