the picture is a little misleading but don't let that stop you from buying this watch. the face isn't true white, it's actually just polished aluminum, or some metal similar. it's beautiful and i don't often buy watches, but i'm happy i purchased this. the middle of the face (where the 3 functions and hands are) and the ring outside of the face (where the numbers are) are offset every so slightly higher. it adds a little depth to the watch face as a whole and is awesome looking.
the polished metal might as well be white because unless youre looking from 6 inches away, you can't tell.
the picture also led me to believe that the watch band was a soft touch black leather that was thick, but it's a little bit thinner than it looks and its semi-glossy. it's still one of my favorite watches though now, and these aren't flaws. i just wish there was more pictures to help describe it on amazon
As a college student with some Christmas money to burn, this was a great addition to my wrist. Now, I no longer have to be tethered to my cell phone or try to calculate the angle of the sun to figure the time. If you value time and your wrist, go with this watch.
Also, it's really comfortable and keeps very accurate time.
