This is my first really expensive watch, and I love it! I've had a couple Invictas before, but this is one blows them out of the water. Despite it looking rather large in the pictures, it is quite a smaller watch looking almost like a woman's watch. Still, it gets attention like no other. The alligator leather strap is top notch and very solid. The skeleton window provides a mesmerizing view of the second hand gear. I haven't had a chance to wear it much (more of a special occasion watch for me), so I can't really comment on its timekeeping ability. Overall though, it is a gorgeous looking watch in a surprisingly generic box.
