Watch Review

Dial & Case Design

A key aspect of this watch is that stunning skeletonized dial design that allows us to view the movement. These are some of my favourite watch designs and the use of the rose gold detailing on the dial makes this design work extremely well. The design gives this watch a very luxury feel without costing the world.

Type Of Crystal

Protecting the front and rear of the watch we have a specially hardened mineral crystal glass. This type of glass is treated to make it extra resistant to scratches and knocks, it’s also highly shatter resistant.

Watch Movement

The watch features an impressive Japanese automatic movement that can be viewed through the skeletonized dial or via the exhibition caseback. Automatic movements don’t require any batteries, and this model powers itself via the movement of the wearer’s wrist.

Watch Size

This watch has fairly reasonable size specifications. The casing diameter measures 40mm and has a thickness of 11mm. This makes it a great popular size that should suit most peoples wrist size.


The strap is made of a comfortable genuine leather with a dark tan colour. It measures 22mm wide and is perfect for this watch’s casing size. The strap fastens with a typical buckle style clasp that can be seen in the picture further below.

Extra features

A key extra feature of this watch is the stunning exhibition caseback that allows you to take a peek at the inner workings of the watch and its automatic movement. This is found in many of the Rotary skeleton watches and is one of my favourite features on a watch.

Water Resistance Rating

The water resistance level of this watch is 30m. A rating of 30m / 3 Bar / 100ft makes this watch suitable for everyday use. Splash/rain resistant. Not suitable for showering, bathing, swimming, snorkelling, water related work and fishing.
