When this watch first arrived I was surprised by its large size and weight and wondered if it would be comfortable and practical for me to wear. I needn't have worried, the padded leather strap quickly moulded to my wrist and the chunky face sits neatly on my wrist without slipping round.
It is one of life's little luxuries to wear a timepiece which is always perfectly accurate and never needs winding. Over the years I have endured watches that gain or lose minutes every day, battery powered watches that gave up with expensive regularity, and even missed a train or two due to either of these problems. Never again! Having owned this watch for a year I have found it completely reliable and never had to touch the manual adjustment button as it resets itself for summer, winter and European travel. The only exception was Malta where it did not detect a new time signal for the hour ahead of UK time. A lot of things don't run on time in Malta though!
In conclusion, this watch has given me great service and I haven't once had to consciously charge it up since leaving it on a north facing window sill for a few hours when I first got it. Chunky watches are still very much in fashion so it's suitable for us ladies to wear with style in mind. Men won't find it oversized at all. If I had to pick fault, the only thing I'd change would be the size of the date window which is a bit small and not backlit... but it is always correct!
More manufacturers should use this technology, imagine wearing different watches for different occasions and outfits; no more dud batteries or allowances for imperfect timekeeping, now that would get me parting with some serious cash! In the meantime, I'll enjoy not spending money on batteries, and never having to worry about missing a train again!Precision Prew0024
