Awesome watch with one major flaw!
on December 16, 2015
I was very impressed with this watch when it first arrived. It was well packaged and when I pulled it out of the box, it definitely made a statement. The watch was very affordable yet looked like I paid hundreds for it. With a case diameter of 45 mm and 13 mm thickness, the watch was solid with a nice weight to it and seemed very well built. Even the dial The stainless steel case was solid with a very nice weight to it. I wasn't sure about the blue dial when I ordered it but man, it REALLY looked good when I saw it on my arm. I could see the luminescent hands and markers well at night too. And unlike my Invicta, the date actually worked as well. The only downside for me was the bracelet. It too was beautiful and had a nice weight to it, unlike some really cheap ones I've seen. However, after wearing it for a few days, I noticed the polished stainless steel in the middle began showing a lot of scratches and I'm not just talking about a few. It literally looked like someone rubbed a brillow pad over it in places where it may have rubbed against my computer or desk. I only wore this over a 3 day period facilitating a business meeting and no recreation whatsoever. Perhaps if they had made the entire band brushed, it would not have been so obvious. But that polished center just shows every little abrasion. For that reason, I had to return the watch. As usual, Amazon made it easy and gave me a refund. If they had and Amazon was great about giving a refund, as usual.
