Summary: I got this little beauty for Christmas. It's a fantastic looking watch and just feels like a quality piece. The main reason that I wanted to write this review however, is just to say that the watch looks bigger than 40mm IMHO. I actually went to measure it after I initially put it on, because I thought Amazon's specs must have been mistaken. I believe the unadorned stainless steel bezel just makes the watch look bigger.
Summary: The description above is incorrect. The most notable is that this watch comes with a SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL, not mineral! I've had this watch for a few weeks now and love it. Some of the beauty comes from the slightly recessed chronograph dials, 1/10th of a second timing, completely Swiss made, excellent luminosity. Would buy again and again. Excellent deal for the price.
Very nice watch with only one minor disappointment

Summary: I've worn my model 24071 almost daily for two years and it still looks (and works) like new. It's earned more than a few compliments from people who would not ordinarily notice a non-glamorous man's watch. It has no bezel to consume face space, so the hands and letters are large and easy to read. My only complaint is that I thought the subdial at 3 o'clock would track hours; it instead tracks tenths of a second.
Summary: I have purchased this watch twice. I love it that much. My first one I purchased years ago and I accidentally ruined it myself while changing out the battery...silly me. I recently decided to re-purchase because I love this time piece so much. To me, the 40 mm size is a perfect fit for my 6 3/4 inch wrist. The weight is just right. Indeed, this is the most comfortable watch I have ever worn. It can also be worn with just about anything, save for maybe a tux.
Summary: The picture from the site was the current model, I received the 2007 model. Stopped working after a few days. I checked the return policy for the store and once out of the box, they would not take the watch back. The Swiss Army warrenty was good, so I had to send my new/old watch in and they fixed it. Won't buy a watch from them ever again.
Summary: I've now had the watch for a little more than two months. I was apprehensive buying it from a non-authorized dealer. However, the seller provides an equivalent warranty and has been in business for years plus I called them and talked about how I would handle a warranty situation. No red flags from the conversation.
