A simple and elegant watch that actually looks better than the photos. The ceramic bezel is a nice touch and the polished finish is a nice contrast to the flat black face of the watch. My only reason to give this watch four stars and not five is the exhibition case back. The Miyota movement inside isn't all that attractive and the rotor isn't finished in any way to make viewing the inside of the watch worth the effort. A solid case back on this watch would not be out of place. The rotor also makes a noise when spinning which I think is something common to this movement. The motion of the seconds hand is perhaps not as smooth as a Seiko movement but that isn't a big issue. The watch strap is better than most of the straps I have seen but that isn't really saying a lot. It does suit the watch and I can live with it. Overall I would have to say that I am pleased with this watch and will wear it often.
