Great looking and so far it’s keeping time better than more expensive options
For the price this is a stunning watch that omits the gaudy over done glitz that so many manufactures use these days. It feels nice when put on, it has a nice heft to it which I like, I avoid those lightweight plastic watches, not because they aren’t any good but rather I just want to feel that weight of a watch on my wrist.
This really is a beautiful looking watch. The finish detailing is very well done, similar to that found on watches that cost a good 20 times more. The face details are excellent. The only thing that worries me is the same thing that worries me with any watch that has gold plated pieces. Often only after a period of time can you tell how good the plating is, whether it scratches easily or simply wears off by rubbing against a shirt sleeve. That said, I have watches that are in the same price range which still look great after years of use.
For the price I cant complain about it’s accuracy, I’ve found that in the 6 weeks I’ve been wearing it that the seconds may have dropped or added a few (I didn’t look that closely when I set the time on it) but at the minute level its right on.
The bracelet seems to be well made and taking links out of it is no different than the high end watches I’ve had over the years. The clasp is a double lock to make sure you can’t snag it on a coat sleeve or anything else and have the watch drop off the wrist.
Only negative thing I have is that the bezel used for setting the start time for a dive is too loose, it needs to be a bit tighter as I found it can be easily turned when not expected. It does rotate only counter clockwise (the safety feature that ensures you don’t stay underwater longer than allowed) like it should.
