I bought this initially as a possible gift for my groomsmen and I am really impressed at how nice this watch looks. My finance was sceptical at fist but once she saw it, she too was also blown away at how nice it looks. It's light weight and goes well with any outfit so you can dress up or down with it. Not sure about how long it'll last but I think if you take care of it (it's wood so one would think to take care of it) than it'll last a long time. Can't beat the price and it was packaged with care.
