WOW! From the time my husband and I saw this watch we knew it would be perfect for him to wear to work. He is a sales manager at a men's clothing store so he needs to have a watch that is dressy but also functional and stylish. We found this beauty at a Fossil outlet near where we live for $80 as a factory refurbished watch. Originally this watch prices between $270-$295. I mean it is Armani after all.
The face of this watch is absolutely stunning. It has the Emporio Armani logo at the twelve 'o clock position with silver illuminescant hands making it very easy to tell time in dark situations. It is light beige with a dark brown or bronze ring with beige roman numerals for telling time. Outside the bronze ring are the seconds listed in black making them also easy to see. The bezel, the ring outside the glass, is a texture polished stainless steel to add depth and gravity to the overall look.
There is an analog date counter at the six 'o clock position telling you what the date is which is great because he is worse at remembering the day than I am! He says the date counter is his favorite feature of the watch even more then the look.
The case is a round polished stainless steel with a real brown leather band and a brushed stainless steel case back with the Emporio Armani logo stamped on it with model number. It has a very antique or classic look, which when we were watch shopping, was something he was looking for. With the large displays it's also easy to show this watch off. The crown, what is used to set time and date, is also textured polished stainless steel.
Now to the guts of the matter. This watch has a full quartz movement, meaning it will keep time very well. He has never lost even a second with this watch. And it is also water resistant up to 50 meters. That's about 165 feet. That means this watch is going to be durable over time and it's ok to get it wet.
Overall, this watch at the price we paid is a steal. I think he would even pay full price for this watch he likes it so well. I personally have never seen a men's watch I like nearly as much as this one. There aren't a million gadgets on this watch. This is a watch mans watch. Functionality and styling are number one. This timepiece works great, looks great, and will be a staple in your wardrobe due to its timeless styling and top notch quality and durability leading to a lifetime of wear.
