Beautiful watch, but man is it heavy
on July 31, 2013
I admit I have a problem, I love watches. No idea where I picked up this fascination from, but I'm beginning to think that I may need help. This watch is beautiful. Waterproof to 200 feet, black dial with white hands, feels very solid. And by solid I mean it's a heavy watch. If you have a thin wrist, you'll be able to get the band adjusted to fit your watch, but you're going to feel like you have a weight tied to your arm. Also, if you have links taken out of the band, make sure you save them for later use, the jeweler who adjusted my band said the band is specific to this watch.
The stem is a little tricky, the instructions say if the stem screws in you'll have to unscrew it to adjust the time. When I looked, I didn't see what I consider to be a screw (Phillips, straight slot, Torx, ect), but what they mean is that you have to unscrew the stem itself a bit to adjust the time. Once I was shown how to do it, it made sense but might not make sense if you don't know what you're looking for. Make sure you keep the stem screwed in tight, that's what keeps the watch water proof to such a depth.
Beautiful, looks great on my arm, and I love it, but not for those who are slight of build, unless you're trying to build up arm strength.
