It's a handsome watch! It keeps perfect time and I love the functions and appearance of it. It's no bigger (in fact it's slightly smaller) than the last watch I wore, not too big at all. It worked perfectly straight from the box (excellent packaging by the way). It is everything you would expect of a watch with a Swiss quartz movement. I love the way the subdials work - in "ticks" rather than slow continuous movement. The strap is supple straight away; it needs no breaking in period. Good instruction manual. I love everything about it. I spent a long time choosing it, looking at literally hundreds of watches and their descriptions/specifications and I 'm so glad I opted for this one!
