Watch looks beautiful; however I think the blue color detracts from the overall appearance. Had I seen this watch in person, I would have preferred the black version. However, now that I'm looking at it for two days, I'm sorry to say I wouldn't purchase it at all. The hands are difficult to find in the skeletonized backdrop, the luminous material in the tips of hands isn't all that luminous (even after hours of exposure to both sunlight and incandescent light -- and I mean up to 24 hours at least)! I found it a bit heavy, but that may be because I would have had to have in sized it down to fit my 6",1/8" wrist, which may not have been possible. One other point, while it has a push/pull crown, this Automatic is very difficult to pull to set time and date -- a fingernail splitter -- no exaggeration! Trying to wind this watch brings the same result, but this time to two fingernails! Bottom line, I am returning this watch to O.o tomorrow! Stuhrling does make fantastic watches; this is just not the right style for me! Thank you for your time!
