I bought this watch for my husband, who has always been entranced by the classic simplicity and clarity of the clock face seen in Swiss Railway stations. This watch, reversing the white background of the Swiss railway clock with an updated black background and white dots, retains the remarkably clean, open, almost minimal modern look of the original design. Another welcome yet unobtrusive update is a magnifying crystal that enhances the watch's readibility even further. This analog watch is extremely easy to read, and keeps time as well as you would expect with a well-made quartz movement. There is a touch of luminosity in the watch face and hands. My husband does not have a big, beefy wrist, yet the sizable diameter of the watch does not overwhelm or overburden his arm. He also likes the simple, solid leather strap. Men seeking a classically simple functional look, without an abundance of details and moving parts (like even a date feature), will find this watch a pleasure.
