I bought this watch for my boyfriend's birthday, and he loves it. I watched the watch online for a long time, hoping the price would come down, but instead the price has been gradually increasing. Eventually, I just cut my losses and bought the watch at a higher price than I had originally seen it, and it was still well worth it. My boyfriend wears the watch all the time, and he can't get enough of it. He says the blue surfaces look vibrant in the direct light, but in darkness, you can hardly tell that the watch has blue tones at all - it's very dynamic. He also LOVES to look through the glass surface on the back of the face, because you can actually see the automatic movements charging the watch when you swing it. I highly recommend this watch.
