This watch is beautiful and stylish and just totally awesome. The circular shaped face for the date is really unique. I did some research on a Japanese quartz and found out that actually Japanese quartz is the better type of movement so don't think that just because it says Japanese that it is a cheaply made watch. This watch looks classy for either casual for dress wear and I would not hesitate to wear it for sports use either. The leather band seems to be of excellent quality and I have a large wrist so I was worrying if it would fit. it was a needless worry as I can attach the watch to my wrist with the second last hole on the wrist band. If you have a small wrist there are plenty of adjustable holes on this watch band. I do not think you can go wrong purchasing this item.
