I purchased this exact watch a year earlier for my Sons 20th birthday. Needless to say, it was accidentally 'taken' from his college bedroom. I purchased the first at a Department Store for $50 more this the price today. This watch is a GREAT first 'adult' watch for a young man. It is not priced outrageously and it looks great. My son especially liked the 'black' face as compared to the ivory/pearl. It's a great gift!!
