Some involved impressions
A long time, I wore the full-dial tempered steel variant of this watch. My general initial introduction of the watch was “exemplary” however by one way or another stylish and somewhat on the advanced side. The jewels are a pleasant expansion to the dial since they get the light and draw the perfect measure of shimmer. The applied Roman numerals at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock are shading facilitated in rose gold plate or steel with the case, similar to the long, thin hands – making for a truly pleasant, adjusted look.
One of the pleasant things about the full-dial watch is that it is fueled by the FC-303 development and furnished with a helpful date sign at 3 o’clock. I love the way that the date marker is in reality enormous enough to peruse without being obtrusive. As to the size of the watch, I think the 36mm is extraordinary for a little, slight wrist. Despite the fact that I commonly lean toward a bigger watch, this one made its own traditionally exquisite and female assertion on my wrist.
