The picture of this watch doesn't do it any justice, it's actually much nicer in person. The chronograph is easy to use and handy. It's good sized and has good sized numerals. But the best feature is the Eco-Drive. The other day I was at a respectable jeweler and the best they said they could do for a price on the exact same watch was $195, so don't bother with local jewelers, they can't even begin to compete. A couple things to be aware of are that the watch band is a bit short and doesn't offer many holes for adjustment. So if you are a dude with a big wrist, you may need a different band. Also, the band is pretty stiff at first, I just took the band off and washed it once. It seems to have loosened up now. All in all this is an awesome buy.
