Absolutely stunning watch. top quality!!!
I'm thoroughly enjoying my watch. The quality and finishing is easily the equal of much high priced watches I've owned. The dial is absolutely stunning in the flesh! The strap was a bit too big for my small to medium size wrist (could do with being a bit shorter and/or having a few extra holes), but that's the only negative. I swapped the strap for a WatchGecko bracelet with flat end links that I think matches the watch well. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase.
In a market crowded by diver knock-offs, big brand copies and cringe-inducing fashion watches this is a refreshing and tasteful design. The bronze porthole style suggests a diver bezel without being too technical looking. The black MoP dial is free of date complication, word clutter and the branding is not intrusive providing a window on the inky depths - in keeping with the marine theme. Applied indices and pencil hands closely matching the bronze are a nice touch. Lume is very good as is the strap. Everything I’ve been looking for in a watch at a very good price.
The watch is magical. The dial is like a black pearl. That means that the radiance is quite delicate. It needs some bright light.
Simply a piece of art, thank you!
