nice size and stirdy feel
on 4 September 2013
I received it yesterday so i can't judge the long term quality of the watch. This is more a first impression review.
It's a lefty; so the crown is on the left size. I am righthanded myself and i wear the watch on my left wrist. Therefore the crown doesn't dig into my wrist.
The band are still rather stiff, but i'm sure they'll work out fine over time. It's nice leather but could've been better. Especially the second strap holder is bound to fail in the near future.
Onto the watch itself:
The case is a bit on the thick size but acceptable. It's a pretty heavy watch but that's ok; makes you less likely to forget you're wearing it.
I like the size/diameter of it; it's big but not as big as a U-Boat or TW Steel. I find those a bit too much for my taste. The black face with white numbers and yellow accents really works for me. I haven't tried the luminous features of the watch yet but i recon they'll work fine. The chronograph works fine by using the two function buttons next to the crown.
The glass is 100% flat; not like some other watches who have some curve in it. I hope it's tough enough not to crack or scratch too much, but time will tell. It's should be a hard mineral glass so it should be fine.
The watch comes in a large yellow case which is nice to store it in i think. It came with a pricetag of MSRP $525.00 which i find too expensive for this watch. I understand it used to retail for around 450 but i'm glad i picked it up for around €100,- which is really good value.
I'm hoping to enjoy this watch for a long time.
