Fell in love pretty fast and pretty hard. Love the vintage-look and clean dial. Rubber strap is something people complain about but it's fine for me. Simple. Keeps all your attention where it should be: on the watch. I would prefer this in 42 and not 44 but 44 fits my 6.5 wrist, although it's just about at the limit. Up close, the black paint used in the engraved indices on the bezel look a little sloppy up close but I can't tell if that's QC or stylistic. Either way, it's not enough to bother me.
