First luxury watch purchase
on December 27, 2012
My husband collects Disney watches and has wanted a luxury watch for years. He has a nice Seiko watch but the band keeps coming apart and the electro plating is wearing off and pitting so he doesn't wear it.
I've looked at different watches over the years with him for something that was within our budget, and that was stylish yet conservative. He never liked any of the other chronographs because the dial was always too busy. However the alignment of the minutes and hours dial on the Freelancer works quite well. The watch components come together very well in this watch to make it stylish without making it look like a sports watch.
He also loves the way the band fits. It doesn't pull the hair on his arms or hurt his wrist. A break and a couple of wrist surgeries have made his wrist sensitive in some areas. The clasp on the band is secure and he is not worried about losing it like he does with some of his other watches. The back of the watch is transparent, and I catch him looking at the internal mechanisms quite frequently. So far he has claimed that the accuracy is very good and has yet to reset the time. His only complaints about the watch have been very minor. He was hoping for a watch that had a window on the face so that he could see the internal mechanisms.
Based on what we have read and seen, we couldn't pass this watch up.
Transparent case back
No window on the dial face to see the internal mechanisms
