All of the online photos of this watch I saw don't do it justice! The watch-face is a subtle, almost-charcoal color, a softer black. The chrono dials have a sun satin finish. The face has a very retro appearance, as the design is based upon a 1948 B&M model watch. The transparent sapphire back allows you to see the watch's internal components working, a mark of a truly valuable timepiece. It's a heavy watch, but not uncomfortably so. Bottom line: It looks like the $4,000+ watch that it is.
The bracelet comes with full and half links to ensure that, with professional assistance, it fits perfectly. BTW, I have a trusted local jeweler that I deal with, he's a Rolex certified technician, and he charged me $8 to adjust the watch.
On a more technical note, this watch (model 10062) uses an ETA-made Valjoux 7753 automatic mechanical caliber so it can be serviced by any competent watchmaker or repair professional. Buying it through a non-authorized dealer does come with risk, although I am confident that either the Amazon warranty will cover any problem I have, or the amount I saved off of the retail price of this watch would more than justify what I could ever have to pay a professional to work on it -- out of warranty. I bought this watch with my eyes wide open, understanding what I was buying and what that entailed and I am very pleased.
As for some criticisms that I've seen online about this watch's, and other automatic watches', inability to keep perfect time, I would say this: This is a piece of jewelry that contains a highly sophisticated mechanical movement that is dependent upon the movement of your arm to stay wound. It should keep excellent time if worn constantly and well cared for. But, if you care more about precise time than the prestige and aesthetics of a finely crafted timepiece, then you should buy a Japanese quartz watch like a Seiko. Those are well made and keep excellent time, and they even look good. But, this is a piece of jewelry, some would call it a work of art, more than it's a device for keeping time. Keep that in mind as you consider this watch, or any other automatic, mechanical watch.
Recently had to send watch to Asurion for repair again, as watch was slowing down. Got it back back after a few weeks. Worked OK for a few days then died. Now I'm out of warranty. 2 years of constant repairs. What a lemon... never again!
