I've had this watch for a few months now and it doesn't appear to have lost a second. It looks and feels like it cost alot more than the adverstised price and I have at least one person comment on it everytime I wear it. The only thing that needs pointing out, and this is by no means a downside is that it's not only enormous but also very,very heavy. I quite like that fact but obviously no good if you're slightly built or have thin wrists. I, like many men really like watches and have bought many over the years and this is by far the one I've liked the most. Mainly for it's stylish simplicity.
