Cartier Roadster S Chronograph XL - too big on my wrist?

Hi! Does this Cartier Roadster Chronograph XL look too big on my wrist?

Looks great, but the date is supposed to be WHITE.

Apparently Cartier made an even bigger version.

W602019x6 - with cyclops at 3'o clock (more common ones I see)
W6206019 - larger version without cyclops and black date

No it looks perfect. I really love that watch. I feel it’s one of Cartier’s best.

Impossible to tell in a shot like that. Almost every watch will appear to fit poorly in close shots.
A good way to see if a watch looks "too big" on you is to take a picture in the mirror of you wearing the watch with your arm across your body. Take the image from far enough away that you get at least neck to waist. Then you get a much better perspective that is not distorted by proximity.

Well, like an AP it is supposed to look big. I think it looks fine and having owned a Roadster, that is an excellent watch.

I ended up getting the new Cartier Santos Large from a reputable seller here. I still love this roadster chronograph and may get one down the line. Thank you all for the input.

I also started with Cartier Santos, and later got myself Roadster as well.

Love the new Santos with the quick strap change system.
