Very Nice Watch
on November 24, 2012
Very nice, good looking watch. This model model #241472 is advertised as a men's watch but is considered unisex. The face is larger than a woman's watch but smaller than the other model #241464. For me, the larger face is perfect so I can see the numbers on the dial, but not so large as to engulf my entire wrist. I like the look of all the numbers in a standard format (why anyone would like Roman numerals is beyond me) on the watch face rather than every other number etc. This is one of the reasons I tend to gravitate towards Victorinox style watches. It is a casual watch that I really never have to take off. It is nice enough to wear to work and water resistant so I can wear it in the pool or scuba dive to 300ft. That is Victorinox to me in a nutshell, rugged, functional and stylish. I give it four stars because the face is dark. The picture depicts a well lit image, in the lower light the gunmetal face is much darker. In a well lit room or direct sunlight, you can distinguish the numbers. In lower lighting, you simply cannot. The truth is that the watch is beautiful and I can't bring myself to return it (though had I paid MSRP, it definitely would have been returned). I am very satisfied with my purchase.
