I got this watch as a present (OK, I asked for it). When I wear it I keep getting compliments, mostly to the effect of "that looks like a very expensive watch." I was a bit wary of the rose-tinted gold tone, but it's fairly restrained. The wavy pattern on the face is also a touch of subtle elegance, and the blued hands are simply beautiful. The watch itself is a bit heavy, as are most self-winding watches, and I'm no fan of the oversized face look, but this watch can pull it off. The curved back helps keep it from being uncomfortable on my wrist. It keeps good time, really the only time I need to set it is if I haven't worn it for a couple of days, or at the beginning of months with fewer than 31 days, to adjust the date.
