I bought a silver dial version of this watch (my first auto chronograph) several years ago for about the same price and it has been a good watch (which is to be expected having a Valjoux 7750 heart). That said I have recently been contemplating selling it because of two issues with it: First it has always irritated my skin to some extent, particularly when the weather is warm. I have a nickel allergy, so perhaps the nickel content in this alloy is particularly high. This is honestly probably not an issue for most folks (and I have over a dozen other SS watches, none of which have given me any trouble of this kind). Secondly it is very thick at about 16mm. To put this in perspective I have another auto chrono that is about 14mm (a Longines Master Collection Moonphase...with several additional complications) and another one on the way that's 13.7mm (a Ball Trainmaster Worldtimer, so it, too, has an additional complication). 2mm might not sound like much, but it sure does make a difference when you're wearing it...especially if you want to try to fit it under a cuff!

Long story short: it's a good watch, with good history, and a great movement being sold at a great price from a dealer that I've had a lot of good experiences with, but know what you're getting before committing to buy.

P.S.: it might be 42mm, but it honestly wears like a 40mm so unless you have really small wrists (sub-7in.) I think you'll be fine with this one from a size perspective.

Would be all over this if I had a bigger wrist or the watch was 40mm.

Seems most deals here are on 42mm or larger and I have a very thin wrist Frown

Sometimes, they put copper in the stainless to make it whiter. Could your allergic reaction be due to copper?

The movement in this watch is exceptional--beyond a first class 7750--uncanny in its accuracy.

Sneaky buggers made an automatic chronograph that performs like it's quartz!

Bought this watch with rubber strap about a year ago and it's moving along very well. Couple thoughts:

1. Many compliments. Quality is very, very good for the price and it is noticeable by other people since the face "jumps out."

2. Doesn't hold charge for the full 60 hours. I'd say it's closer to 50 hours when worn for a week straight so it should make it through a weekend if you wore it during the week.

3. Fairly accurate. Mine runs slightly fast and gains maybe 10-20 seconds per 24 hours which is very good for this price. Rather have mine running slightly fast vs. slightly slow.

4. It is thick so not a very good dress watch, although I have worn it with suits and such and does fine.

5. Stainless steel part of the watch does scratch (like other stainless steel), but the sapphire crystal does the job and keeps fairly clean.

6. The movement is very smooth and has a satisfying sound and spin when you wear the watch.

7. Keep in mind these types of movements should get servicing. At this price, you can argue getting the watch serviced (about every 5 years), which will set you back 200-300 through Hamilton may not be worth it. Keep this in mind when you consider cost and whether you want to keep it around for a while.

8. Overall very happy, it is my main daily driver and am very satisfied until I make more money and can upgrade to IWC/JLC Smilie
