As for the watch, I am very very pleased with it. It is a very sexy looking watch, and the movement looks very smooth. The watch itself is thick and has a nice, hefty feel to it.I also liked that every surface on the band and watch was shipped with protective plastic on it. I had to take some links out, and that was no problem. It took me about 15 minutes. After 12 hours the time is still dead on. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this purchase.
