Some years ago my husband gave me this beautiful watch for my birthday. I'm not really a watch person so I really love that it looks exactly like a gold bracelet and unless you look closely you wouldn't know. The band is stainless steel gold tone about 3/8 inches wide and the watch portion is just 1/2 inch wide (yes, I got out my ruler so I could give you exact measurements). I wear my watch mixed in with my other bracelets and it blends right in, yet I always know the time with a quick glance. The watch is analog and runs on an easy replacable quartz battery. I trust the Seiko name and my husband has owned one or another as long as I've known him. He was a smart cookie to find this perfect watch for me!!!
