A homage version of the intra-matic watch from the 1960s, this is a modern sized 42mm version. The contrasting silver dial is domed and the hands are curved to match in a wonderfully vintage way. The crystal is also domed and the case appears slimmer due to a step design that is well thought out and very comfortable to wear on the wrist. I have the bracelet version which is very well executed and solid. The bracelet is more of a 1950s style that is high polished and has 9 solid individual links across. There are two 3/4 length one piece links besides the clasp that can be used or removed independently for precise fitment. The links are removed via an easy traditional push pin design. Screws would be considered higher-end but the pressure pin is more practical. The butterfly clasp has tasteful circular graining and is solidly well designed. It closes very securely without play. The venerable eta 2892a2 movement is cleanly radiused and well finished giving it nice aesthetics without going over the top. ETA being part of the swatch group you could say the watch has a inhouse made movement. The price is a bargain. I haven't taken it off since I received it.
I bought this watch so I can have a daily watch with a black face. The case is huge , face and side. The titanium case lessens the weight of this massive watch. I have been wearing this watch on and off for about 3 weeks now and I can tell that the quality is up to par with more expensive watches. My only complain is that the band is too short, I wanted to buy a new longer band but I cannot seem to find the right one for the watch, and the lock has very sharp edges, it did catch my pants at one time and my arm but other than that I am quite satisfied with it.
Overall this watch is excellent. What you can't see in the picture is a handsomely-crafted honeycomb dial, barely visable but very elegant. Also the number designations on the dial are slightly raised, which gives the watch a nice look. The chrono function is easy to use.Tthe minor drawbacks are 1) the watch is probably 13mm thick. I have more expensive watches that have more complicatons and are half as thick; 2) it's very heavy; 3) the chrono function is hard to see; 3) the band is cheap-but looks ok (replaced mine-but it's not necessary); and the crystal along with the dark face pruduces lots of glare (I see the importance of having a sapphire crystal). Overall, I love it. The watch was delivered on-time, just as promised!
