Most chronographs appears to have been designed by a testosterone filled Special Forces wannabe, bristling with bezels to allow you to count down the timer of the fuse on your grenades, all done from an improbable depth of water which the watch will allegedly withstand. This is different, it has a very clean, minimalist design. The white face is slightly off white and the watch is well finished, but the lugs are a little too sharply squared off - shirt cuffs might suffer from rubbing against them. It keeps perfect time, (although as is often the case with chronographs, the stop watch sweep hand does not automatically reset to the 12 o'clock position - is this to prevent the date window being obscured? Not sure). The only thing that detracts from the elegance of the design is the thickness of the watch, but for about £300 you cannot expect a Patek Philippe.
