I've had this watch for almost 2 months now. So far I'm more than happy. However, there are some caveats.
First of all, you must absolutely read the manual before even attempting to do anything with it. I felt a little stupid trying to set it without reading... I simply couldn't do it! While the manual mostly did the job, I don't find it particularly easy to follow or well organized. In summary, this is not the typical watch you can just buy, set and use. But learning to use it really pays off.
Since I live in Peru, radio time synchronization doesn't work (no stations within range), so I can't comment on that. I bought it knowing that I wouldn't be able to use that feature, so it's no problem for me. However, I can say that in the 2 months that I have it, it has kept time within 2 seconds of my laptop, which synchronizes daily using NTP (i.e. you can assume a sub-second accuracy any given day). So no complaints on accuracy.
Regarding functionality, it's a fine watch. It simply delivers. However, there is a small caveat that has been mentioned in other reviews: you cannot set the calendar to track the timezone used for the main time display (i.e. the hands). To overcome this, I set both of them to my home timezone, but this defeats the purpose of having dual timezone in the first place. Another caveat is that although the manual mentions you can set a custom timezone offset, I haven't found a way to do it.
Finally, regarding the build quality, I have no complaints. Yes, it would've been better to have a sapphire crystal. But, overall, the build quality is excellent. The face looks great even when watched very closely. I love the titanium body and band. I love its color (which is different than stainless steel) and love the fact that it's light compared to stainless steel watches of its size. Of course only time will tell if it ages nicely.
All in all, I highly recommend this watch for everyone wanting a feature-rich watch that looks and feels great. I don't recommend it if you're looking for a simple watch or if you don't like reading through manuals to even do the most basic stuff with it.
