If you like analogue and digital - this watch is a cheap option with a lot of functions and nice big numbers on face. Flourescent hands can be useful if the lights suddenly go out as they store the light and glow for a time when it goes dark, which is just as well because the light is pretty awful - it glows orange behind the clock face only appearing at the edges and it doesn't help that much - maybe if it's pitch black - it seems to be all about battery conservation these days hence the 10 year battery. The alarms and beeps are a bit quiet as well. I've just had much better but on watches where the battery won't last quite as long. I sometimes have real trouble accessing the date having inadvertently hit a button -being a vital function it should be readily accessible at all times I think. Still does a lot for the price though.
