Usability: At first, I had thought of getting a clamshell watch but I’m glad I didn’t. That would require several extra movements other than just pulling the watch out of my pocket to glance at the time and that would be really impractical. As things are, it is actually easier to pull my watch out of my pocket than it is to pull out my cell phone to check the time. It would be hard to justify using it if it actually took more effort than pulling out a phone and unlocking the screen, such as pushing the knob, opening the shell, pushing the knob, closing the shell again.
Winding: This is a wind up watch, it has no battery. At first, I thought this would be annoying, but once again, it turned out to be a good thing. A wind up watch is a small piece of mechanical perfection. The fact that this is a skeleton watch allows you to view the mechanism through the front and through the back allowing you to see its perfection of movement from both sides and in detail. If it were battery powered, it would have a much simpler mechanism and would hardly be as classy. I find myself enjoying the small ritual of daily winding and it also gives me a chance to show off my fancy watch while winding it.
Quality: I have been using this watch for a few months already and am glad to be able to say that it has not suffered a single scratch. It looked so pretty when I took it out of the box that I was afraid that it wouldn’t last a week without suffering some sort of damage.
The Face: Since the hands are all the same color, it can be occasionally somewhat confusing when they overlap. I’m sure this is just because I just don’t have enough experience at telling time on analog watches.
Movement: The second hand does not glide like a rolex’s would, although it is a lot smoother than most conventional watches, it still skips from one second to the next.
Final Considerations: When I buy jewelry or a watch I don’t subscribe to the old time theory that it should be passed down from father to son, etc. Items like that, these days, is subject to fashion just like anything else and will start to look outdated after a while. That is reason enough not to make huge investments in a particular item in this department.
This is a high end watch and I am glad to have made this choice. While it is not going to be the last watch I ever buy, it will surely keep my interest for the foreseeable future. I believe that the its build is of a quality that will keep it looking good and ticking for many years.
