No, we know it's a military field-style watch, but for guys with larger wrists, it looks ridiculous.
For you, that is. I do happen to have large wrists myself, and have owned a few other watches in this style from other brands. This style is one of function over form, so a more fashionable large size is not so common. That said, some larger, more-fashionable, variants exist like the one you cite.

It looks a LOT nicer IMO, especially when you use a nice Hadley-Roma 22mm brown leather band on it. I'm searching for a NATO band in that width but haven't had any luck locally.
Looks like they have a decent leather one here:

Search for NATO watchbands if you want to know more.
I did say that earlier, and would recommend eBay for the standard fare of striped nylon. You can also find ZULU straps, but they don't seem to come in nearly as wide a variety of colors or design.
