A present for my 65th this watch is everything I have ever wanted in a timepiece. Special mention for the lovely clear glass with its curved edge which feels so luxurious. The strap is made for a giant but having small links it can be adjusted to a perfect fit by a jeweller, who also showed me that the two sides of the linked bracelet are folder over and locked individually rather than trying to press both sides together at the same time. Although my senses may be fading I find the day date section easy to read and the "tick" barely discernible.
Only one small gripe, I thought the hands might be luminous, sadly not but maybe they don't do that any more. My father had a WWII brown faced Rotary pilots watch with huge luminous blobs that set off all the Geiger counters in one of the Defence facilities where I worked as a lad

I chose this because it was a classic, simple design and I was buying it as a surprise. I was even more satisfied when I received it as it looks even better in real life!
I would recommend this watch to anyone who wants anything that is not too big and flashy, but wants something subtle and classy.
