Nice, clean watch
on 9 December 2012
I bought this watch in the Black Friday Amazon flash deals for £37.50.
I really like this watch and it is very comfy to wear all day. I don't usually wear watches as i generally don't like the feel on my wrist, however, the nylon Nato strap is very comfortable and i can wear it all day long without it annoying me, something that i cant do with Leather and Metal link straps. In fact i have a Mondaine pocket watch for this reason.
2 things initially attracted me to this watch. One was the simple, clean design and face, there is no clutter or stuff that is never going to be used and it is nice and easy to read the time. The second was the price. This watch comes in a very nice box and 4 straps are included. Straps direct from Nato start at £10 each, so for me, £37.50 was a no brainer.
The watch feels well made and has a good solid weight to it, but it is by no means heavy. The tick is quite loud, but this doesn't really bother me.
I have worn it nearly every day, and so far so good.
I have seen one review saying that the strap is too long and it overlaps. I too have relatively narrow wrists and have it on the smallest hole, but the great thing with Nylon straps is you can fold it over the second loop and back under the first, to keep it nice and secure and out of the way.
Overall i really like this watch, It makes a nice everyday watch that is relatively smart and very comfortable. I think the rrp is steep but £94.50 feels about right.
