I treated myself to this for christmas as my old one was only a cheap one which had become tired and batteries weren't lasting very long in it.
I love the dial which is easy to read and I liked the fact it had the date on it, sadly the date is very small and hard to see, especially in low light.
The other down side for me is the pin! To put it on when you are wearing your uniform is awkward as it pins left to right and my old one was right to left as you look down on it. So when putting the watch on my uniform I have to remember to put the watch on before I wear my uniform. Having said all that I still like this watch and know it will last me till I retire!
