Watch Review

Dial & Case Design

The watch features this brilliant open heart exposed skeleton dial design, it allows you to view the inner workings of the automatic movement and gives it this impressive luxury finish. The hours and marked by slim PVD gold plated batons, the hands are also PVD gold plated. The casing itself is made of stainless steel that’s PVD gold plated to match with the dial finish.

Type Of Crystal

On the front and rear of the watch, we have a protective mineral crystal glass. This glass is specially hardened to offer extra scratch and knock resistance. Mineral glass also offers a great level of shatter resistant, better than sapphire glass in fact.

Watch Movement

At the heart of the watch is a popular 21 jewelled Miyota movement. Miyota are well known for their accurate and reliable mechanical movements. Automatic movements never require batteries as they’re powered by the movement of the wearer’s wrist.

Watch Size

when it comes to the sizing of the watch, everything is pretty standard. It’s classed as a men’s large watch as it has a casing diameter of 40mm and a thickness of 11mm. This gives you a slightly large, but not too thick casing, ideal for most men.


The strap is a dark tan colour and made of a genuine soft leather with a 22mm width. It fastens with a standard buckle clasp, the clasp itself is also PVD gold plated to fit in with the rest of the watch design.

Extra features

A favourite feature of mine is the exhibition caseback. This allows you to take a peek at the inner workings of the 21 jewel automatic movement through the rear casing of the watch. There’s an example of an exhibition caseback further below.

Water Resistance Rating

This watch has a water resist rating of 50m. A rating of 50m / 5 Bar / 150ft makes this watch suitable for recreational surfing, swimming, snorkeling, sailing and water sports.

My Final Thoughts On This Rotary GS00345/02 Review:
