What a great watch. I spent some considerable time trying to wiegh up the pros and cons of those watches available through Amazon, primarily for their competitive pricing! First and foremost I required a watch with a date function and that this is a day/date model is a bonus.
But to the watch itself and not only looking the part, but with it's leather strap is both comfortable and adaptable making it easy to loosen, when the weather gets too warm - obviously living in the UK this won't be too often. The rotating crown is ideal for timing the eggs and the luminous hands are easily readable in the dark.
One point to note is that the image provided by Amazon differs from that on the watch recieved. The styling of the 'hour', 'quarter hour', 'half hour' and 'three quarter hour' are not angled as shown and the red trim underneath the ''Rotary" logotype is missing. This aside, this is a fantastic watch, weighty, stylish, & looks good on the wrist. Oh, I forgot to mention the satisfying 'tick', that is not one that will keep you awake, but put your ear to the case and it's there.
So basically, at this price, this watch is a bargain.
