Unfortunately, I could not tell you exactly how comfortable the watch is on the wrist, because as I said I was not able to get a proper fit. But, you can see how this watch wears on a 7.5 inch wrist. With its 45mm case and 53.5mm lug to lug, it is not small by any means, but not overly imposing.
Overall, I don’t think it’s a bad watch at all. To me, the leather strap versions are probably a better value, as they retail at $270, and would probably allow a better fit for most. If they were to include half links in future productions of this model on the bracelet or switch to a dive buckle with some micro adjustments, the bracelet would be a lot better, and I would be more willing to recommend it. The Racer has a mineral crystal, as I believe most of Meister watches do, but at $320, sapphire crystals are not in abundance. Yes, you can find them, but it is definitely not the norm. For me, the carbon fiber dial and large running second hand were the standouts, and again, this could be an inexpensive way for you to use some custom straps, especially if you like the Panerai style case, but you are on a much more limited budget.
Thank you to Meister Watches for providing this sample for review. You can see all the variations of this model in the link below, and please check out the video review as well.
