I notice that many people have an issue with the band length. This type of strap is called a NATO strap and is designed to give the wearer the ability to wear the watch on the outside of clothing, which is why it is very long. When worn on a bare wrist, the strap will travel through both rings, then fold back over itself and back through the rings again. A quick search will bring up several videos if my description does not make sense.
The only thing I would have loved to see would have been the date on the watch.
Apart from that, I absolutely love the watch and have been wearing it every day since I received it.
It's a solid and clean looking watch. At 42mm it's a little bigger than I'd like, but certainly workable. It's my first watch with a NATO-style strap and I was a bit surprised by the height added by two layers of the strap underneath the watch. That'll take a bit of getting used to and adds to the impression of "largeness".
I also like having the date on my watch, but was willing to sacrifice it for an open and uncluttered face. The glass is very reflective with the black watch face, so the occasional angle adjustment is necessarily to clearly see the hands, which are rather thin (and reflective themselves). The numbers are not luminescent, so some external light is necessary for viewing in the dark.
The length on the strap is understandable given it's a NATO band and with my large wrists, it's welcomed. On most watches bands, I only hit the last hole or two. Here I have a whopping three to spare. However, the strap buckle sits off center and to the outside of my wrist, resulting in the occasional clack against my laptop wrist rests.
