Happy with this watch!
on December 31, 2013
This watch is well made: the crystal is very clear, internal & external metal portions are nicely polished, and it is accurate (I had it running for 7 days now & it is neither fast nor slow-- it is as accurate as my quartz watches). I bought two of these watches: this one with the black finish keeps accurate time (after 7 days), but the one with the gold finish (that I bought for myself) is fast --it gains 15 seconds per day --but I'm still keeping it--and I'll just wear the gold one on "special" occasions. The leather watch band could be thinner --but Its thickness matches the thickness of the watch body.My son, who just graduated with a civil- structural engineering degree was interested in this watch because of its unique design.However, he does not like to wear this watch because it is too thick for him (it is @ 13mm thick). As for me, its thickness is acceptable. This watch cannot be winded by turning the crown --I first winded It by holding the watch so that Its face Is upright / parallel to the floor. In this position I then gently rotated the watch along a 5 Inch diameter circle --the net effect Is to have rotor weight rotate In a clockwise direction.I recently bought a watch winder for these automatic watches. With a watch winder, have It rotate in a counterclockwise direction. . This one, and the gold version , are our first automatic watches. I was surprised that with " normal" hand movements, these watches actually wound the springs some more. I also like the fact that I can see how much of the spring Is wound up. Even though I would prefer this watch to be slightly thinner, I give It 5 stars becuse of Its unique design. I am happy with this watch! Romeo D.
