It's a beautiful watch - just gorgeous, really. I had one in hand that was offered at an exceptional price and it nearly became mine. Alas, I have a new rule that I will not permit myself to break: any new watch must be easily legible without resort to reading glasses. The small subdial for hour / minutes combined with the low contrast between the hands and the grey dial just blew this one up as a purchase option. And I was very disappointed, because I had seen any number of web pics where the hands really seemed to pop. Oh well, for those with better eyes than mine, I heartily endorse this watch.
