It's a beautiful looking watch that's really grown on me. Maybe a future purchase for next year :thumbup:

Especially like that face/strap combo.

Congratulations on this award. I think the word "quintessential" is aptly applied to this watch.

That is a great looking watch. Sleek and classic. I'm usually not a big fan of pr-indicators as they often tend to mess up an otherwise clean dial, but that sure does look good. Also you can never go wrong with a white dial and blue hands. Thumbs up!

Well done indeed. I'm a little intrigued as to what is meant by Easy Wearing.

Versatile and adaptable? Not too big or too small? Inoffensive?

My dad used to buy "Easy Listening" records. Unobjectionable but hardly set the pulse racing.

Val Doonican more like! :D

Surely such crassness is hardly something to aspire to?

A very nice-looking watch. Not for me, but still a pretty watch. The "easy-wearing" might refer to the power reserve. It won't stop if on the shelf for a few days so you can grab it and wear it without the hassle of setting it.

Yes CW, that is a bit of a future classic. A lovely watch and certainly not marred by having the new CW logo on the dial.

That a nice looking watch, with an unusual place for the power reserve. Very clean looking, tempted to add this to the list for a dress watch.

I was thinking "Classy" but quintessential is a great word too!

Congratulations. I have been eyeballing this watch for some time. It looks like a watch costing much much more than its asking price.
