this watch is much nicer looking in the metal. i was also worried about the bracelet being too polished. the bracelet works fine for me even though i generally do not like a lot of polishing on sport watches. the lume is magnificent. the blue is gorgeous at night. the bezel is top quality with incredible lume as well.
the watch is heavy but wears comfortably on my wrist. one of the lugs is slightly uncomfortable when touching my wrist, but this is to me not getting the fit quite right.
i purchased from rob topper and am very happy with the watch and their service.
