Picky me says with a power reserve of 50% you obviously did stop!

On first glance I did originally think this watch too big and mentally put it in the same league as the circa £20 fashion watches from the likes of Sainsburys and Asda.

However, I do like the power reserve watches and this may just make it onto my wish list, albeit some way down the list of priorities.

Some days, I look at the Becketts, and I think that there had to be a more elegant way of incorporating the power reserve into the dial. But other days, I look at it, and I just think that the rest of the dial is so interesting and multi-layered that I can easily overlook the fact that the power reserve isn't perfect to me.

I actually read that you want to keep those types of watches within the middle ground because otherwise the springs are overexerted at the outer extremes.

Still my favorite out of my 4 CWLs. I like that strap that you have it on. I'm looking for alternate strap ideas for mine at the moment.
