Summary: I love this watch! Looked long and hard at a number of watches to replace my 20+ year old Seiko that died. Finally settled on this one. Bought from Amazon because they had the best price and because they have a great return policy. It is very handsome, and looks much better than the stock photo. Have had it about a month and it keeps great time (as a quartz movement should).
Summary: Amazon sent me the wrong watch. When I called them, they said that the watch I have ordered was not in stock. How they could then have confirmed that the watch I had ordered had been sent is difficult to understand.
Summary: I have had the watch for a couple months now. It looks great and keeps spot on time. I like the second hand having red on the end, it makes it easy to see. The hands are large enough to easliy see, day or night. The numbers are white with a very small silver outline. The hands are easy to see at night and retain the glow for several hours. The band has gotten some scrathes already but that is expected unless you never put your wrist on any surface.
This classy, sleek-looking, comfortable watch does the basics simply and compellingly

Summary: I'd eyed this classy, sleek-looking watch for over a year and then - when it dipped to more than 30% off the list price - I took the plunge. I'm happy I did. It looks and feels great. I'm a fidgeter, but I've not thought once about this watch from the moment I strapped it on. It's super-comfortable. I'm one to easily find something to irritate me about a watch. In this instance, I have nary a bad word to say. The size is perfect for me.
Summary: Pros: * reasonable price * high build quality * 40mm case is not too large but yet not too small. fits men with relatively not so large hands. * looks great (but this is subjective) * accurate Cons: * date is 'manual' i.e.
