Initially, I wasn't impressed. I thought the design was too old-fashioned. I was undecided between giving it away to my son or returning it. So i just kept it in the box. Weeks later, I re-visited it and found, to my surprise, that it was growing on me. I guess it was the clean, simple, functional design, along with the separate second-hand dial. Plus I liked the feel and color of the leather strap. So I started wearing it, casual-like, for days at a time. Now, I'm getting compliments from friends who notice it.
