Ok, so I bought yet another gadget watch and tricked it out with a Hirsch band. I bought the watch off the Bay for $586, and spent another $90 for the band. I have a small wrist, and the watch looked clunky on the original thin band, but imho looks good with the Hirsch. Having owned an older version, I know I won't use the whiz-wheel unless I'm converting dollars to "dubers" while traveling abroad. Likewise, I'll rarely use many of the other features but love the fact that they're there when needed. This watch has a solid spot in my rotation.
