Classy, slim, comfortable
on June 6, 2012
My girlfriend bought this for me recently for our anniversary. It is super classy and more importantly extremely comfortable. I used to have to remove my old watch often at work when putting in extended screen time at the computer; the way I rest my wrists meant the metal band was jabbing and pinching my wrist a lot. Also the arm hairs pulled out periodically by the watch sliding about 2 inches up and down my wrist were a nuisance. That wasn't a cheap watch either, I bought it in Switzerland.
This watch is better in every respect. I favored Skagen designs because I have very slim wrists and forearms and chunky watches make them look slimmer. Also The "bling" aesthetic isn't my favorite as a formal-leaning-business-casual-wearing engineer. The band is very fine stainless mesh that has yet to be anything but awesome; very easy to clasp and adjust, very secure, stays put on my wrist, and doesn't catch any arm hair.
The clean design, neutral case and bezel color offset by orange numbering and "second" hand, is superb. Actually sometimes the frequency and duration of checking the time is distracting, as I just really like looking at this watch. At Amazon's price, it looks a lot more expensive than it really is.
I love it!
