This is a beautiful watch, and is one that keeps accurate time throughout a day. Extremely satisfied with this purchase, however I took off one star for two minor reasons:
1. This watch is not an automatic watch, meaning that it has to be wound to keep the time. A full wind will keep the watch running for about 40 hours (according to an Arkibos Representative), however I've noticed that is more like 30 - 35 hours. You can wind the watch during the course of the day, in which case it wouldn't stop unless you forgot to wind it. This is the case will all skeleton watches, however I just wish that the wind lasted for a little longer that what I have experienced.
2. The second negative with this watch is that while it is keeping time, the second hand creates a fairly loud ticking noise while on the hand. Don't get me wrong, it can easily be tuned out, and I rarely notice it throughout the day, however during those quiet times working on reports, it can become a bit of an annoyance.
Overall, I would recommend this watch to anyone who has an appreciation for a quality timepiece. I have received several comments on it so far, and if you are looking for something a bit outside the box than your standard fossil watch, definitely buy this.
