This is one hefty, tall, heavy watch. If you order this watch you will be surprised by its size when you see it for real.
I still think the watch looks beautiful, but its design is flawed : the hinging portion of the band is held to the case by small, weak screw on both sides. I believe a pin going straight through the case might have settled the issue. It is somewhat disappointing to think they didn't bother to design this thing so it could actually be worn on the wrist all day every day. After all, this is what wristwatches are for.
My story :
A week or two after I got the watch, I noticed one of the screws was loose. I tried to tighten it, but the hole had somehow become elongated (probably because of the weight of the watch itself).
I sent the watch back to Vestal, who were great about fixing it. But I've not worn the watch since because I am wary of breaking it again (this was over a year ago). My girlfriend wears it now and then and it looks better on her tiny wrist than on my 7.5 " wrist. I do take pleasure seeing it on her wrist.
I got this watch mainly because I loved the design, don't like analog displays and wanted a very durable, simple-looking timepiece (i.e. not made of plastic or resin).
Pros : Beautiful despite its size, great looks, keeps time well, love the display, simple and clean, Vestal people are easy to deal with. Its display is the best I've seen in the dark(the watchface is not lit, only the numbers glow).
Cons : Heavy (don't wear this beast to an event where you plan to clap your hands a lot, seriously!), surprisingly large, flawed band design, looks better on smaller wrists in my opinion, Vestal brand marketing is completely retarded.
All in all, I would not recommend this watch UNLESS you want a huge, tall watch and are aware of its shortcomings. Your band screws mileage may vary. This watch is still a pleasure to look at.
