What you can't see
Reviewed by MW from Virginia on Thursday, May 11, 2017
I bought this watch a few days ago, I can't speak to ongoing reliability but I can certainly speak to initial quality. What you can't see in a picture is just how comfortable this watch is the wear. I have several bracelet watches ranging in price and none come close to this comfort. Slept with the watch on and forgot I was wearing it. I have read several reviews of the Filson (Shinola) watches here and at different sites. Yes, $1000 is probably too much for this watch, but not as overpriced as most folks think. Glare coated sapphire crystal lenses are pricey, this bracelet and case are at a very high level of quality. It does not have an automatic movement, that is about the only difference between this watch and those costing many times more than the initial price. I am not buying this watch as a collectors piece I intend to wear it and as such not having to fiddle with and maintain an automatic movement is fine by me. The design is beautiful to look at and the viewing angles are plentiful. The Super-LuminNova hands perform about as expected (well). When I got the navy dial watch I was so taken that I ordered another with a different color face. You will not be disappointed when you consider the sum of the parts and see what you can't see in the picture.
