Size is right. The design shouldn't startle young children. Price seems reasonable, especially with the coating. Don't know why more companies don't do this. The coffee beans take it over the top for me. Dark roast beans make me think dive watch. Sign me up.

Do the coffee beans come with the watch?

I quite like these guys. They do a casual watch which looks pretty good and there's a quartz option:

<9mm thick, which is nice.

Not sure about the masturbating horologer though. First time I've seen the SW200 described as "state of the art".
