I am driven to write this review based on the variable feedback it has received so far. Ingersoll is a pretty well known brand, although its glory days are probably in the past. The Obaku sub-brand is clearly an entirely new concept and one which might feel a little forced (if, for example, you are the type that refuses to acknowledge the quality of Lexus cars because of its lack of heritage). However, this watch is beautifully simple and elegant. it is very thin and light - not quite in titanium territory, but then, it's a steel watch. The mechanism seems perfectly reliable and precise. The smaller dials are for day and date; the date numbers are a little small for me to read, but my eyesight is getting worse with age. All in all, it is a nice watch which discreetly, but handsomely, goes about its business. I think it's very fine indeed. It reminds me very much of Skagen watches, which I also quite like.
