I LOVE the look of this watch but PLEASE be careful if you need to adjust the clasp! The watch comes with no instructions on how to do this so I went on line and found a YouTube video that helped me out. After I adjusted it, I am now having trouble closing the clasp securely so rather than risk having it fall off, I haven't worn it.
I had wanted one of these for Christmas, two years ago, and for some reason I ended up with another, but didn't forget about this one. I was poking around Facebook recently and saw it for an incredibly nice price at Overstock.com (a wonderful source for men's watches) and decided to have another look. The watch comes in a number of color and band combinations, as well and round or tank face, which actually makes the final choice pretty difficult, as you many find yourself wanting more than just one.
The one I chose, the 'Uptown Ozzie Genteel' is a beautiful timepiece. The band is nice, and of good quality. The face and numbers are at a perfect contrast of background and number color. It's not particularly heavy, so you really aren't very aware of having it on your wrist other than when you need to either see the time or simply show if off. It definitely exudes an image of a watch that you paid considerably more for, and indeed from other sources I have seen it at full price (and that's not on the inexpensive side, at all!).
The only two points I took off to take it down from excellent to good are things that you may be completely unbothered by. It's a tad larger than you might think, which would actually make the larger size too big (for me). The clasp is a bit fussy to work with, but when closed it is firmly closed. In the longer run, that's probably an extra point in favor, but .....
All in all I am completely happy with it. I do like watches that tend to be out of the mainstream. To me, like socks and neckties, watches are some of the last bastions of individuality that one can have in this 'same old, same old' world of ours, and this one fits the bill. I'm sure it won't be long before I get the black on black one, but in round face.
I purchased this watch for my Dad and had it shipped to him in South Carolina. He had a speaking engagement on Father's Day and this was his gift. When I called him Father's Day morning he could not contain his excitement. He loves this watch!!!
