I love the watch so far and it looks great. If you are looking for a dressy watch, this is a bargain (though Titanium models are coming down in price as well).
Two things you should note... the glow in the dark is ONLY on the hour and minute hands (not a huge deal, but if you're used to having some glow in the dark on the 12 o'clock position for reference this may not be a welcome surprise). The markings on the face of the watch are metal and do not have glow in the dark on them (my last watch had it everywhere so this will take some getting used to in low light / at night).
Also, if you need to adjust the size of the watch band to fit your wrist, the pins (not sure if that's what they're called) you have to remove are absolutely tiny (thinner than the metal on all but the smallest paper clips) so if you're used to adjusting watch bands yourself, you may want to buy the tiniest tool you can find for this or take it to a jeweler anyway. It's a few bucks more but it sure beats potentially scratching the band.
Also, for those of you with thick arms and wrists, this watch will probably look too small on you (it's a pretty small watch compared to most men's watches). I have pretty small wrists so it works fine for me (where larger watches look too clunky on my wrist). If you're not sure, try to find one at a local watch seller to see it in person before purchasing online.
