I love the solar charging aspect of it so I don't have to change batteries, and the watch itself looks amazing and extremely classy. But there are a few downsides:
1. The link edges that touch the skin are a bit sharp so the first few days I was constantly itching, and I don't have the band tight either. I guess the skin will get used to it.
2. The color in the center of the links is black, not dark gray like in the photo, and unless you are in bright daylight, the watch looks black. Fine for some, but if you are looking for a gray/dark gray watch, this is not it. It's way darker in real life than in the picture.
3. The second hand that goes around the dial like in other watches is instead a stopwatch, so it just sits there at the 12 o'clock position, while the actual second hand is the tiny dial on the left at the 9 o'clock position. I would have liked if it would function instead as a stopwatch when needed, and as a second hand the rest of the time as it just sits there taking up space and looks a bit weird - exactly as it is in the picture.
4. No day of the week dial. Instead of the top small dial being used as a stopwatch minute dial, would be better if it had the day of the week. I mean, I check my watch for the day of the week waaay more often than I would use a stopwatch. I don't think I'll ever use the stopwatch functions on this watch, so the dials are going to sit there wasting space.
To summarize, the watch looks very very very good on your hand, but lacks usability and some functionality.
