The elegant design of this watch attracted me to it right away. I love how they’ve integrated the luminescent points (hands and hour markers) into the dial. At night, it appears more compact and easier to read. And it’s a manually-wound watch. I don’t know about you, but I love winding my watches at the end of each day.
