worth the money
on March 31, 2012
this watch is just the right size for me. i have a small wrist and at a diameter of 27 mm this watch is not too big. i had my heart set on a bulova watch that is automatic and self-winding, but the round ones had on average a diameter of 34mm which i knew would look too big on me!
it is diamond accented but the diamonds are so small they are barely visible. this is just fine with me because i don't like gaudy watches. this watch has an understated elegance which is more to my liking. it also feels sturdy. i like the feel of its weight when i am holding it.
i don't plan to wear the watch everyday so i bought a watch winder that winds the clock at preset intervals when i am not wearing it. i've had the watch on and off and in the winder since i got it 4 days ago and it hasn't gained or lost a minute since. it's a very accurate timepiece contrary to the caveat that it may gain or lose a few minutes daily since it is a mechanical and not a quartz watch.
if there is one thing i don't like, it is that it is hard to tell the time when one or both watch hands are positioned over the heart. maybe i'll get used to it over time but i can't say i don't find it annoying especially when the lighting conditions aren't good. also, my eyes aren't as they used to be.
other than that i think this watch is a keeper.
