Great Watch... Bracelet is Lacking in Function.
The watch itself and its packaging has exceeded expectations for the price point. The details on the watch are nicely executed as well. The watch keeps excellent time. This brushed finished looks good and is accentuated by the minimalist polishing. I can't attest to its ruggedness or durability that the watch is known for.
The watch is large, but wears smaller than the case size would lend you to believe which is a pleasant surprise. The thickness from caseback to crystal is noticeable however. The watch has presence, and some heft to it. You will know its there. If you have a smaller wrist (<7"), I suggest your try one on first before committing to purchasing this watch. Despite its size, I find the watch tasteful yet understated, and still has a presence to it.
The only complaint is the bracelet's clasp. While the bracelet itself is tasteful and comfortable, the clasp stinks. When you undo the bracelet, it fully comes part. To put the bracelet back on, you require the support of your thigh or a surface to lay the watch against while you attempt to thread the bracket on one end of the bracelet through the locking hitch on the other end. It took me several tries the first time I tried and I continue to find this operation annoying. I suggest you consider replacing the bracelet with a NATO strap simply for ease of mounting the watch on your wrist.
If the clasp weren't so aggravating, I would give this watch a 4, but because it came with this clasp, its a 3.5 stars. Read full review
