bought this from amazon as a gift for my better half, he has since gotten many compliments--submerged it in water--went hiking--slept in it. Looks good, keeps good time, cool retro styling and thankfully fit his wrist perfectly without fussing with the extra links. I think having a date on it would be good but that would detract from simplicity i suppose. Pretty heavy watch. Got it in the white stainless. Bought it first from a different store online which was a mistake because that battery was dead and the watch was defective. This one was perfect.
