Excellent buy and I am very pleased with it. Looks and feels expensive. Its overall appearance is a combination of tough, beautiful, and classy. The face is just the right size; not too small or large. IMO, all proportions of this watch, both as a whole and among its elements, are very good. It has a lot of textural variation, which I like very much. The band is high-quality silicon rubber that is anatomically shaped, rather than a straight rubber strap you must attempt to form into a curve. It is soft and comfortable. Best of all, the strap isn't a mile long. I do not have small wrists, but I hate buckle watchbands that are seemingly sized for ankles. Both keepers on the band are moveable. The skin side of the strap has a subtle pattern to provide ventilation. The stem is easy to grasp and manipulate. There is no pesky date to maintain, which I prefer. We have dates all over the place these days and I can't easily read the date on a watch face anyway. It arrived with the stem blocked in the stop position so I know the battery is (nearly) at capacity. In typical "affordable watch" fashion, the second hand does not quite meet the markers exactly. This is a pet peeve of mine with watches; the only one I have seen that is perfect is my TAG Heuer. The 24-hour clock notations are very handy.
