So.. I've been checking my Aquis regulary, and I must say that I'm deeply impressed.
Last time I set it was about a week ago, if not a bit longer.
It literally gained about 2 seconds. 2!
I've heared of Rolexes, IWCs (and many brands, you name it) that gain more than that.
Nothing short of exemplary.
Speaking about Rolex, I've recently got to compare my Aquis to a Rolex GMT master II, and while the Rolex face is hard to beat, I believe the bracelet on the Aquis
has better engineering to it.
I think I'm in the minority but I really do like integrated bracelets since they tend to have such a better feeling to them than regular ones. If the bracelet is this good I see no reason in the world to change it. The Aquis bracelet is maybe the detail that appealed to me the most when choosing the watch.
I still need to get that IWC Ingenieur one day... My gut tells me the bracelet on that one is a dream. Oh well, I have patience
Meanwhile, I'm deeply enjoying my Aquis, and it probably will stay that way for years to come.
Certainly couldn't have made a better purchase in this price range.
