Unusable date function. Strap has more willpower than me...
on 7 July 2014
It is pretty. However, in practice there are some issues. Despite the large face, the date function is absolutely tiny and actually unusable when the date has two digits as they all run into each other.
The week number function is the main reason I committed to purchase and it's just about usable if you squint at the watch.
The strap is thick and stiff and feels like it will last, which is a pity as putting the watch on every morning is a struggle and usually involves a thigh. I worry I will crack the strap or pull it from the watch at some point.
If you just want an accurate and pretty watch and don't mind not seeing the date, this could be the watch for you - as I said at the start it is a good looking watch.
Finally, setting this watch and the moon phase is quite tricky and you will find yourself winding the hands round A LOT to do this. My fingers were actually sore by the time I finished as the moon was just a bit past the correct setting.
I'm afraid I can't recommend this watch...
