Bought this watch for my husband and he loves it (as do I). It's a very stylish black watch, especially since the face is black. The band does have a gloss to it, the picture looks like a Matte finish but it looks fantastic. Easy to size and durable! My husband and I have a 2 year old son and a 6 month old son. He wears this watch almost every day and it stands the test of children ;) Highly recommend.
