5.0 out of 5 stars Classy but not gaudy, big enough to read easily, and tough, but surprisingly light., January 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lucien Piccard Men's 12011-023S-BL Monte Viso Chronograph White Textured Dial Dark Blue Leather Watch (Watch)
This is the first 'nice' watch I've ever bought. My old one I thought was permanently dead (Actually it just had a dead battery) so I looked at watches here to see if any were on sale. Needless to say, I caught a massive watch sale and looked around for what was in my budget

Spotted this and it was perfect. Classy, but not gaudy in the least, built robust without being built like a tank, especially considering how light it is (My old Watch was a Citizen Promaster, all steel and like wearing a barbell). The fit and finish are all flawless, the leather's actual leather (It's dyed blue, but it's really dark, nearly black, which actually helps highlight the stainless steel) and lastly, it's easy to set the time so you don't get it out of the (Gorgeous and elegant) box then spend an hour poking buttons or trying to go through a 50 step process that makes you wanna throw it at a wall.

The good
Simple and classy
Easy to read
Build quality is excellent, though I dunno if it's actually hand crafted.
Simple to get set up, directions are clearly written and no complex controls.
Actual leather for the band
Lightweight without being the least bit fragile
The price. $75 to my door thanks to catching it at something like 90% off O.O
The might be good depending on what you want
BIG! If you have big wrists or want to get a bit of attention without screaming for it, then great. If you have small wrists or want something that'll stay tucked under a jacket cuff until needed, then problem
The bad
Nothing I can think of, though someone who's more knowledgeable about high class watches might find something to nitpick.

Verdict - Booyah!

A cellist says:
I'm glad you like the watch, but you didn't get as good a deal as you thought. Lucien Piccard is one of those companies whose products sell for a fraction of the MSRP. Their watches are definitely attractive, but not higher quality than you paid for.
