I ordered this watch as a wedding gift for my husband a year ago. The watch is more beautiful in person. It has woren incredibly well and does not have a scratch on it. I would definitely recommend this product for the active man in your life.

My Great Grandfather was a watchmaker, and I inherited one of his pocket watches that bares our family name and still keeps near perfect time. As for my day-to-day life however, I'd always been into cheap Japanese watches, i.e., when they stopped running I'd just throw them away and get another one. Over the years, this rather wasteful practice started to add up. And always having had an appreciation for fine watchmaking, I finally ventured into the world of Swiss watches, and this Raymond Weil Tradition Series watch has proven an ideal entry point. It's simplicity, it's utility, and yes, it's good looks, in addition to it's reasonable price have all but changed my mind about the el cheapo approach to watches. (I still feel that one has to be a bit nuts to spend over $20k for a watch -- you're just asking to be mugged, kidnapped, or worse.) So now, I now have a stylish yet unassuming every day and evening Swiss watch with a quartz movement that keeps time accurately and without effort, even when left on the shelf for several days, years in fact. And as for those really formal occasions, at which I'm obliged to impress the vainglorious, I'll just trot out my Great Grandfather's pocket watch.

This is a great looking watch and I still love the style; however, glass chips easily. I have two chips on the glass which is supposed to be scrach resistance saphire. I am confident that I have not hit this glas against any subject which could cause these dings on the glass. It sould be a noticable impact if two areas on the glass are chipped, but there hasn't been any.
