Awesome! Better than the picture provided by Oulm!!
on February 16, 2015
Really cool looking watch! The metal around the face is darker than the picture, which I think is good thing (I think the light used for the photo over-brightens the actual look of the watch, but I very much like what it really looks like). This is a LARGE watch, but I like this. I've had TONS of compliments on the watch, even a few who say from a distance it looks like one of those "smart" watches. One friend who is a watch geek was excited to see and knew right away that it was Oulm.
For those who are interested: The top and bottom buttons on the right hand side do nothing but press in and release (at least nothing that I could determine). Also the three round dials under the main time keeping section do nothing and do not spin, they seem to be almost silk screened on the watch face.
I should also mention that I am a large man, and so my wrist is big, so this watch band only allows me to use the first two holes. The first hole is about perfect, but a little loose, but the 2nd hole is waaay too tight on me. If you have big wrists keep this in mind. Also, the material on the band will probably rip and break with daily use, so I'll be alternating watches so as to prolong the life of the band.
Final thoughts: I'm not sure how easy it will be to replace the band if needed. The band is shaped to the watch where it connects it is sandwiched between the face and back of the watch, with three tiny screws (from the back on the top and bottom) holding the band in place. This may make it difficult if not impossible to replace without a professional leather worker. Thought it was worth mentioning.
Still, I love this watch, and all my friends do too!
