Talking about big watches and Monsters, this one definitely qualifies for the Monster category. The Illum II actually looks a bit smaller then the limited edition, while the diameter is the same 42 mm without crown. Of course the well proportioned turning bezel reduces the watch face somewhat. But then, this watch is HEAVY. Please have a look at the next picture and please notice the thickness of this bracelet. Somehow it reminded me of the chains of a tank!
