I had this gifted to me from my wish list over a year ago and it still looks good, works perfectly, no battery change as yet either AND no colour lost just a slightly darker strap due to almost everyday wearing. I really like this watch, as another reviewer mentioned the fact that the leather strap goes behind the actual clock face as well, so the metal does not touch the skin so no rashes that some may get. I'm one of those 'some' which is just one of the reasons for choosing.
It is most comfortable to wear, looks nice, with the tasteful mix of colours chosen for the flowers, leaves, and wavy embroidered line along with a few circular and off circular holes punched through here and there. It has an easy to read date function too and the cool tin box it comes in is great.
This is an all round quality watch by a reputable company that I would not hesitate to recommend to others. Very happy!! :0)
