I bought this for the sapphire crystal. Keeps excellent time and it’s comfortable. I own Seikos and Casio G Shocks, but this is the most comfortable watch I own.


I like the simple yet versatile appearance. It could be worn in a casual or a more classy way and I like that. The price is certainly a bargain… Simplicity with style about sums it up.


I like how this watch is clean, simple and classy… I also like how the clean dial has some interest with the step between the ring and the center, in spite of the low profile. Great design.

    I have always known that many of the movements in various watches were the same. But it is nice to know there is someone with some sense in their heads who seeks to educate the public. For too long we have paid far more than we needed to because a particular brand wanted money for their trade name. I don’t mind if I am getting quality, but if I can have the same quality watch for far less by avoiding trade name premiums, I am happy to do so.
