    Great for watch lovers - 7/17/2014
    By: from El Granada, CA

    I love this watch. It's a "vintage" watch, and it's the best looking one I've seen. After looking up mechanical versus quartz movements on the Internet, it was interesting to find that watch afficionados prefer the mechanical movements. It's apparently because of the greater craftsmanship that goes into making mechanical movements in the first place. So it's nothing to do with the fact that quartz movements are more modern and reliable.

    Fine Quality and Looks - 6/30/2014

    This is not only a fine looking watch, but it is also easy as it is an automatic winding watch and my husband is so enjoying it.

    Thank you, Orvis! - 6/11/2014

    When my "dress watch" was reassigned to daily service, I took the opportunity to upgrade its replacement to a self-winder, like those which gave me good service decades ago. Although I've only worn it on a few occasions, it has exceeded my expectations and suspect it will outlast my need for a chronometer! Even though i'm 60 pounds lighter and 3 shirt sizes smaller than when I retired, the face diameter does not appear overly large and the tightest adjustment on the fine leather band accommodates my wrist. If a smaller-faced model were available, my wife would want one as well.

    Time to Boast - 5/28/2014
    By: from Gainesville, Florida

    This is the second time you folks have asked me to review this product. I don't mind doing this again because I think this is the best watch I've ever owned. My friends have given me great compliments, the last being "beautiful and masculine." The strap is really special but my wrist is thin and I'm down to the last hole with the end of the strap sticking out, but that's okay because I love my watch!

    Time to boast! - 5/27/2014
    By: from Gainesville, Florida

    This is the best watch I've ever owned. I've lost count of the compliments given me about my watch. "It's so beautiful and so masculine" was the latest. The watch has to be worn full time for about three days for the automatic winder to do whatever it does to keep the watch running, but Orvis tells you this in the instructions. No problem. It's was kind of cool to wake up those first three nights and see the hands glowing. The band that comes with the watch is a beautiful stitched leather, but unfortunately my wrists are narrow and I'm down to the last hole with a bit of strap sticking out the side. I wish Orvis made a strap that would fit me better. But who cares! I love the watch and the strap is still very good looking, even if it sticks out a bit. By the way, I never wore a watch to bed... ever, but I just don't like being without it.

    I like the timeless design and ruggedness of this handsome watch. Along with being an instant heirloom, its highly accurate too. Ive gotten several comments from folks on its good looks. Great watch.

    Great Purchase - 3/8/2013
    By: from Scottsdale, AZ

    I really like this watch! It is difficult, these days, to find a good looking, self-winding watch that is reasonably priced. This time piece is all of that and more.
