Great looking retro design
on May 8, 2012
This is a great watch to me because it takes design cues from the 1960's, when watches were understated, simple, but very manly and elegant. Perfect size - not too big and not too small - and the dial has a very subtle design that is outstanding.
The only issue I have is that the watch is too shiny - especially the band - and this is why I gave it four stars instead of five. It is not "cheap" or "light" weight as the other reviewers have stated - it is simply just WAY, way too shiny. The whole bracelet and all the links are the same shiny finish. Since the case is so shiny they should have made the bracelet alternate with shiny and brushed finishes like a lot of watch bracelets do. But I just took it off and replaced it with leather and it looks like a million bucks now.
It is true that the picture does not represent the "shiny-ness", but I would not blame Amazon because that is true of most watches that you buy online when you look at their pictures. These are the photos that the manufacture releases and they are obviously trying to play down the shine in most watches, so you need to look for actual photos that buyers have posted.
