My new EZM 13 arrived this morning and so far I could not be happier! It's so hard to tell how a watch will fit, feel, and really look based on only online reviews and dimensions. But now that she's here I am really impressed!
I have small wrists. Somewhere in the 6.35" department. However I've never been a fan of small girly watches. I've owned a few U1 models over the years and loved them. Note for those comparing the two; the U1 is much bigger! Even with the distinct looking lugs on this EZM13, it fits my wrist just fine. Based on the fact that the strap can conform nicely it does not look too big at all.
This watch is fairly light and I barely notice it on my wrist. Maybe a bracelet would make it heavier. Some talk about the height, but it is smaller than any G-Shock I've worn in the past. In my books, anyone who complains of the weight of a watch needs to hit the gym. I want to know the watch I'm wearing is on my wrist!
I love the reverse side crown! Unique and functional. The dial is crisp and clear. Turn it into bright light and you can see all the hidden details. Turn it into the shade and you only see what you really need to see.
The bezel is awesome! While I do like 120 click bezels, the 60 click bezel on this has awesome spring action with perfect bite and feel. A real tool watch feel and everything lines up spot on!
It's too early to tell about timing. Really need to have it on for a week to determine that. In the four hours I've had it on it seems to have gained one second. I will say that with my aging eyes, the small second hand dial can be a bit hard to see a precise number. I am a bit anal about my timing. I know some folks are and some folks don't care. The first 24 hour test will tell me more.
Best part is I have 14 days to return it if it doesn't meet my satisfaction. So a big shout out to Main Street Watches, who's a regular seller here on WUS, for having great customer service and has been a pleasure to work with through this process.
I'll keep everyone updated as I continue my evaluation.
