This is my third watch from Island Watch, and I was expecting my next order would be another Seiko. But then these NB Yaeger watches appeared out of nowhere, and this auto chrono really popped out for me. So clean, so readable, without any fancy-pants flourishes to the hands or indexes, and without the brand name taking up large dial real estate. It really looks distinctive and all business. Good snap to the chrono pushers, day/date, screw-down crown, nice flat crystal with glare reduction, and a nice thick leather strap, it's comfortable and modern looking. I have two other Valjoux auto movements, in Fortis and Sinn cases, and glad to see NBY offers them as well. Comes not in a box, but a luxury leather pouch, which is most appreciated. Well done.
