I purchased this watch for my boyfriend as a birthday gift. The photo doesn't do it justice! It is a rather large watch, but according to my boyfriend, "just as chunky as my Fossil." The second hand movement is continuous and it's really interesting to look at all the tiny components inside. The strap is a durable rubber material, and according to him is very comfortable. The watch features automatic winding, but if he doesn't wear it for a couple of days it does stop running and needs to be reset. If you don't wear the same watch every day, just be careful when you put this one back on. It is also waterproof up to 25 feet, which we tested while snorkeling. Still ticking! He also gets compliments on this watch all the time by friends, acquaintances and even strangers. Great buy!
