I bought this watch in dark wood for my boyfriend and he LOVES it! He says that it's a normal weight for a nice watch, not too heavy. He doesn't have any trouble telling the time, he loves the back light that it has. The only issue he has is that when he takes the watch off, it pinches his arm hairs and pulls them out. He just has to be careful and slow when he takes it off (which he doesn't do very often). He has gotten tons of compliments on his watch and he loves it. Best gift I've given him!
