Hi -- I just bought this watch retail, and enjoying having it. A nice feature is the blue flash the ordinarily black looking hands give when the light hits them just right. As engineer, I'm also attracted to the precise markings on the outer edge of the face and the legible hour markers.
You may notice from the photos that the minute hand does not fall exactly on the minute marker when the second hand touches 12. The minute hand falls about 40% short -- see the close up. I'm not sure it's actually going to bug me, but I am wondering if this is something easily adjusted. My other mechanical watch doesn't have enough markings for me to notice whether this is typical. The jeweler was very nice, but it would be a long drive to go back (Seattle to Edmonds).
Also this will be the first time I've worn a metal bracelet since I was a kid. The jeweler helped adjust it for my wrist but even using the half link we couldn't seem to get the size exactly perfect. I opted for barely too tight because the alternative was the watch riding up on my hand. Does anyone have any experience with this? As I understand it, wrists change size throughout the day anyway. Is there such thing as a 1/4 sized link?
