Looks like they did a mighty fine job on these.  What's your impression so far?  Does it have a nice hearty feel on the wrist?  What kind of clasp on the bracelet?  

 

Sorry for so many question :boxedin:

No problem, I'll try to answer them, but since this just came in today, it will only be initial impressions.

Overall, the build quality feels extremely well done. There are no rattling parts, and everything works correctly. The bezel is very well done as well.

It's a heavy watch, and you definitely know it's there, but I'm used to larger watches, so this is normal for me. The bracelet is much better than I thought it would be, and is one that I'm keeping on it after trying it on, while I usually swap these out due to them not feeling well built. That isn't the case with this bracelet. The bracelet has a double locking, folding clasp, and is fairly comfortable as well.

Although these are just initial impressions, the quality so far is above what I expected in a $200 watch, and much better than similarly priced reps.

Back on the original leather, it is a perfect match.  Ordered another watch just for the canvas strap that I had on this one :facepalm:

I hate full price :lol:  I got this one at almost 50% off MSRP as listed at their own site but at Jomashop  with a coupon it was a great deal!

Very interesting — sub-dials at 3, 6, 9. Nice grey/yellow colors.
