It does look great and a fantastic choice with the leather strap, but if you don't like it on your wrist I would do you a favour and wear it on mine for you.
Just a thought :)))

Wow... Thanks guys for all the great comments and support!
It is indeed true I often got a lot of "stick" from my fellow WISer friends locally when we meet although done in good humor. Their comments are like "This is too big for you", "It looks like you are wearing a clock", "Why you wear such a big watch? Are you compensating for something?" etc...etc..
I do actually agreed at 46mm, this IWC does wears a bit big, but not to say anything about small watch lovers, I think it's also take a degree of self-confidence to wear a Big Watch. It takes a "I wear what I like it and I don't care" mentality.
Those lacking that will always be self-conscious and always think of their watch as "Do I look silly with a big watch? What others will think of me?" instead of "Do I like it?". Of course, suffice to say most of them aren't IWC fans. :D
Besides beautiful, size have it's advantages like readability, easy to use and readable chrono dials and sheer wrist presence.

Ben, I can tell you that I am right now sporting the carbon/titanium Volvo Ocean Race brother to your gorgeous red gold YC, and my wrist is also 6,75". To me it looks perfect on my wrist - just as perfect as yours look on your wrist!
Even if yours is a "classier" watch in material and coclor than mine it is still a sports or sporty watch - and as such deserves a larger size!
PS! Your pictures are just stunning - love'em!
