When I opened my watch box, I gasped and the first words out of my mouth were "Oh, holy sh*t" The watch is truly stunning and I love seeing the gears turn through the glass back when I wind it. One of the most surprising things about the watch is how little time it loses. I wore it for 4 days in a row, and despite the movement moving at 21600 VPH (which is still relatively high), it lost maybe 15 seconds over those four days, which is much better than my more expensive watch with a 28,800 VPH movement. If I had to be really picky, I would say that the box and strap feel a little cheap. However, the inside of the band is nice and soft and feels really good on the wrist. I think the leather strap is wrapped in something equivalent in function to a veneer for wood (I could be wrong) which gives it a nice look but makes it feel a little plasticy. On the flip side, this leather band is much more resistant to scratches then my other ones, which is a huge plus. I love looking at the watch, and watching the dual balance wheels and escapements work is mesmerizing and super satisfying. I was in between this one in the black, but ultimately went with the rose because it is a bit less common and goes with my outfits better, and I couldn't be happier. All in all, BUY THIS WATCH!!!
