Nice watch but not for everyone.
on June 11, 2014
This watch looks good and not too flashy.
Case is 36mm but the band is 18mm not 20mm like it is stated here.
Band is leather and stiff at first but eventually loosens up.
Date changes around the 12 AM mark. Day changes by the 5 AM mark.
Things to consider before buying:
-The case being 36mm it will look small on larger arms.
-It is a bit difficult to make out the time quickly in bright conditions since the watch hands blend with the white background.
-The day/date are in very small print, if you have trouble reading fine print then you'll likely struggle reading them with this watch.
-Changing the date is a bit of an annoyance because even though you set the correct date it will not change into the next day until the 2nd day has passed. For example, you set it to be the 5th but when it reaches to 12 AM the same day you changed the date, it won't change to the 6th until the next 12 AM but by that time your watch will be 1 day behind. I originally thought the one I got was defective but it's just the way you have to set it.
Nice watch but the difficulty in seeing the fine print, the monthly annoyance of changing the date and difficulty of making out the time quickly in bright light is what makes it 3/5 stars for me.
