The Black Hole.
on 2 February 2014
Recieved this time-piece some months ago now and it's OK but really no more than that. Firstly, even if it were to cost a few more pounds, I am convinced that the hands should be luminous so that in the dark of the night I would be able to see the time without turning the light on. Luminous watches are, after all, available for the last fifty years, so why not this one? Secondly, the graduations that mark the non-dominant figures on the face (1,2,4,5 etc) which seem so visible in the advertising artwork, are virtually invisible. This makes it hellishly difficult to time something precisely - even simple things like boiling an egg! Lastly, for some reason, maybe it's me but I don't think so, the watch keeps slipping around on my wrist - something to do with the fact that the buckled side of the strap is much shorter than the 'holed' side. Never found an explanation as to why this should be so but the fact that it keeps slipping around is damn annoying after a while.
I have to concede that it looks stylish, but, in this case the style comes at a price. Overall, I would not recomment it.
