Time piece for a yachtman (boy) racer
on October 9, 2012
First of all, the service from Amazon: simply perfect, as usual.
The watch itself disappointed me a litlle bit. I bought it for my 12 years old son, thinking in my former Ironman. The features were exactly the same and hope it will last for many years also. But is aspect is much more "plastic". I've chosen this model cause of the central key to start the count down, and the velcro strap, very useful and confortable when racing optimist boats.
I'll give it to my son as his birthday present, next month. I'm sure he will like it, because he always wanted a watch like mine, but less bulky (it's a "unisex" size, therefore smaller)
Now, with just 6 month of wearing it, the silver finish has almost completly gone, the velcro strap is not reliable any more. and some small drops of water appeared inside. I won't buy it again
