George I said EXACTLY the same thing to Don last night. I LOVE to dial and all the complications and way the numbers and words are displayed. I can do with or without the diamonds but EVERYTHING else is super hot.
Only big problem is that it is to small for me as you mentioned.
I believe my father is buying on (or bought one already) so I might actually get to see it eventually.
yeah the rocks are nicely done so it wouldnt hold me back
normally i dont like diamonds on a watch (too fancy smancy for me) but this watch rocks - personally if it was 43mm it would be a go
absolutely gorgoues and has the Master calendar which for me is a must have set of complications which i currently dont have -sort of a grail for me
Most Eco-Drive watches are equipped with a special titanium lithium-ion secondary battery that is charged by an amorphous silicon solar cell located behind the dial. The titanium lithium-ion composition precludes it from being affected from the regular charge/discharge cycle of other types of rechargeable batteries. Light passes through the covering crystal and dial before it reaches the solar cell.
Depending on the electronic movement model, a fully-charged secondary power cell could run with no further charging anywhere from 30 days to 3,175 days (8.7 years). If kept in the dark for too long, some movement models engage a hibernate mode, where the hands of the watch would stop running but the internal quartz movement would still keep track of time. If an ample supply of light is given, the hands would move to the proper positions and resume regular timekeeping.
