After months of shopping for a watch, which including looking at this watch several times, I decided the Xeric was the most interesting in style and design for this price range.
I initially planed on replacing the band, but after receiving the watch, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the band as well.
It's just an all around beautiful piece...
I'd happily give it 5 stars except for the awkward nature of actually reading the time. I did expect this since I'd researched the watch before hand, but didn't expect it to be so perpetually odd. It's definitely a conversation piece, but I'd prefer the conversation to not always start with, "what time is it?", and then have to explain why it's taking a second to actually answer.
Also, the hour hand is nearly invisible, unless in direct strong light.
I would suggest making it's location clearer in future versions.
I actually cheat and use the 2nd time zone for the hour most of the time... which, I'd like to add, defeats the purpose of having a dual time zone watch.
And sadly, I noticed a small scratch on the crystal the other day, which is so frustrating, since I've had it for probably 2 weeks.
Still, it is aesthetically beautiful, and I love it... Thanks!
