First off, I've had good experience with Columbia products in the past, but this one is the worst thing I've had the misfortune to purchase and not return before the time ran out. First off, the face is HUGE, at least 2/3 larger than the Weekender Timex. Secondly, the band might as well have been made by drunk children. It is flimsy, the locking portion is too badly made to clamp the watch down if you're being even the slightest bit rough with it, and the springs that it comes with bent just trying to take them out. If this thing has luminous paint on the hands, I would ask the manufacturer if he is night blind. Also it ran out of battery about 2 months after I bought it. Buy anything besides this monstrosity, even if its not a watch. A sundial on a cloudy day would honestly be more effective and probably more fashionable that this beastly thing.
