A more accurate review of the watch itself..
on February 16, 2010
The problem with half the reviews so far is that they're complaints about the vendor, not the watch itself. There are other ways to review the vendors/dealers that Amazon uses, not here on the product review. So far, I love this watch, love the way it looks & the compliments I get from it. It's a heavy watch, but that's not unique to Omega, it's just all the internal components of an automatic watch. The diameter is perfect for me, not too oversized like some watches these days. It's got the perfect amount of info needed without looking too cluttered ( the second hand, date, chronograph.)
- Looks: This is a beautiful watch when the light catches the dials and it contrasts against the black face.
- Accuracy: No, it's not going to be as accurate as a quartz, but only requires adjustment every 3-4 weeks (and it's only off by 15-20 seconds)
- Size/comfort: It looks & feels great now, but the weight took some getting use to. If you're really tall or have big wrists, then the 40mm face may feel too small. I had a watch shop remove the links for me, and yes there are smaller adjustments on the clasp. I don't feel the logo to b a bother, and I do agree that resurfacing the back of the watch is an idiotic move.
