This is a distinguished looking watch that will complement any wrist.
It also has some nice touches like the date being slanted towards the viewer, the recessed dials and the recessed seconds etched around the perimeter. It also has a permanent seconds hand - which you do not have on more expensive chronographs.
The negativity of other reviews comes from the chronograph - which it has to be said isn't the smoothest. However it does a job (when you press and hold) and it has never failed me, once I tuned into it's foibles.

Another compilation of Visage - which has a few teasers.
I have a number of the other compilations and I bought this spontaneously. I didn't even know another compilation had been released to cash in on the new album.

Good album of edgy power pop from 1985 - with a great track in 'Johnny Come Home'. They hit their peak with their next album 'The Raw and the Cooked'.
I had been put off by the bad reviews of this reissue. However I took the plunge and bought it - so glad that I did. Here's a few reasons:
- Sensitively remastered which brings out the detail that was previously obscured.
- Interesting sleevenotes.
- Lots of `new' remixes - some very good - 6 on (no8-single) CD for first time.
- Both FYC albums have not been reissued since the 80s, long overdue.
CD 1 43 mins
Extra tracks - OK, but you can hear that they don't hit previous heights
