This was a retirement gift for a colleague who likes watches and sailing. I thought this being water resistant to 50m together with the rubber type strap, it fitted the bill as a suitable gift. On top of that it's a Breil..."don't touch my Breil!" Admittedly this was purchased during Amazons Watch Deal Week so I consider I got a bargain price wise. Not sure I would have paid the RRP price. Came packaged in the Breil box, within a cardboard box, within the outer postage box, well protected, arrived well within estimated delivery date. Ideal packaging for a gift and the recipient of this was very chuffed. The dial is a lovely blue colour and the hands, number bars and red second hand are clear. Looks and feels a sturdy yet trendy, sophisticated watch.

This watch is huge, but Breil specifically indicates 47 mm case, so the fault is exclusively on me. I won’t be able to use it, but returning is not an option now. Overall seems a nice watch for casual use, suitable for informal wear or during vacation on the beach… for those with a generous wrist diameter!
