This is not a big watch. I however do not mind as I don't really like the whole huge watch trend that is currently popular. If you own or have seen a Timex Weekender, the case (width and thickness) of this is pretty much the same size. The face and numbers on it are smaller than the Weekender. This watch has more heft to it when compared to the Weekender, but not so much that you notice on the wrist. Bottom line is: if you like how the Weekender fits on your wrist, this will fit the same. If bigger is better, check out the Seiko SNZ series, it is a similar model that is larger, but a little more expensive.
The color of the face is a solid red / maroon. It contrasts strongly against the white numbering and hands making it very easy to read.
The hands glow in the dark, but unless they are exposed to a very bright light prior to the lights going out, it does not last long and (for me) it is hard to read. At best, I would estimate that the lum lasts for about 30 minutes before it is completely illegible.
The canvas band is quite comfortable, enough so that I could even sleep with the watch on, something I cannot do with any of my other watches. In a pinch, if a black leather band were to be put on this it would look quite sharp and could be used for a more formal occasion. Update: I have ditched the stock band that came with it in favor of a NATO style strap by Ritche; no reason other than I wanted something a little different. BTW, while this is an 18mm band, I have found that a 20mm nylon strap will fit.
Movement & power reserve
This is a mechanical watch and the sweeping second hand is captivating to watch. Upon unboxing the watch, I wore it for about 5 hours. I set it on my nightstand at roughly 11:00 PM, and when I woke up around 7:30 AM, it was still ticking and the time matched that of my alarm clock nearby. That is about 8 hours with no winding after being worn for 5. I have been wearing it regularly for a few weeks and it is always still ticking away in the morning. This past weekend I put it down and wore different watch for most of the weekend, and come Sunday night this was still keeping time.
We all know that mechanical are generally not as accurate as a cheap quartz. While not a precision test, I have set several other of my quartz watches against it and have found that this watch seems to lose about 5 seconds a day.
Overall, I am very happy with the watch. The only problem is that I bought it to see if I liked a mechanical watch, and now all I want to do is get another one!
[Update Aug 9, 2017, about 20 months post-purchase] Not much to add except that my watch seems to lose about 1-2 mins. a month now, and I have to wear it every day to some extent or it will stop the next day. I am still quite happy with it, though, so will leave my rating untouched. The band has not stretched, and the crystal face is still unscratched despite daily abuse.
Here's the thing I missed- it has no battery but is an automatic watch. It depends on arm movement to tighten the spring driving the operation. In other words, leaving it in a drawer for a day or two will have it stop unless it has had extensive "winding" of the "automatic" mechanism. To be clear, the watch cannot be wound by turning the stem. This aspect and the fact that it is unclear how water resistant it is keep it from getting 5 Stars. Two thorough reads of the owner's manual told me where to look for the number indicating this as it is needed to distinguish "don't wear this in the shower" to may go swimming with it, may go snorkeling with it and may go scuba diving with it. The only place the number appears id on the watch face, a 5, suggestive of swimming/shallow snorkeling.
That being said, I'm keeping mine. I really like the looks, the company's reputation, the features and it will hopefully motivate me to be more active.
Best wishes to all,
Peter A White
