This Akribos XXIV gentleman's stainless steel watch is sure to impress with its casual distinct look. This timepiece displays GMT on the inside dial with checkered pattern that ads sophistication to this beautiful watch.
CONS: Note that this is a large case - the description reads "43mm" but I measure it as 44mm edge to edge. The movement itself is actually quite small, so the viewing window on the back is only 24mm across; also, the watch is thick and of heavy weight (90g including strap).The band is a leather strap with a tang buckle, discretely stamped "Akribos XXIV". I have very small wrists for a 6' tall man, so someone more burly might need a strap replacement (it's a standard 22mm strap and could be easily replaced).Nothing on the face or hands glows or luminesces in any way.PROS: My personal opinion is that this a very fine looking watch (and is my current favorite), and I like the solid heft of it and the oversize face. The counterweight for the automatic movement is very light - not normally noticeable. Fully wound, it remains working for over 24 hrs; mine loses about 1min / day - not great, but acceptable.While this watch won't "fool" your watch snob friends, it does a passable job of looking like a fine watch costing 10x-100x more (cf IWC Portuguese). Overall, a nice watch at even several times the current price.
