Nice review.

I don't have a problem with the caseback design; Mark wants the focus on the company, not on him. I also wouldn't want to see his face as a logo on the dial.

The clasp is a bit thin but I hadn't noticed until the reviewer pointed it out. The protective lugs on each side of the crown do protrude on the underside; I felt them when setting the watch. A minor detail but with watches, details matter.

The lume is very good; I would have skipped the lume on the lollipop. I like the design of the hands just fine.

The crystal does not meet the bezel but has a groove all the way around. A good place to collect dirt.

The bezel is a bit stiff to turn which I think is a good thing.

All in all, a very nice watch for the price.
