i struggle with this watch. ive owned it twice. every time i see it, i love it...then i buy it, and the newness wears off and i never wear it. then i sell it, start cycle over again a year or so later.
Its a classic and the price is pretty reasonble. I came pretty close to buying one about 2 years ago. My 2 issues are the movement is a bit ordinary (ETA) and some times I feel like I wish it were just a little wider. I find the Santos 100 too large and clunky. A friend of mine has the Santos Galbee XL and it looks great on his wrist. When I try it on it feels like it should be just a little larger.
Clearly its not the right piece for you if it doesn't get wrist time. One of my Rolex watches needed a new home when I realized I had not worn it in probably 4 years.
Respectfully I have to disagree. I think its a pretty decent solution to giving the wearer a date. I like it better than losing the 3 or 6 o'clock marker, which was done on the smaller sized version and on the Tank Francaise. But to each his own.
