Raymond Weil Maestro Automatic Moon Phase: Negative Aspects
Although I have a lot of positive feelings for this watch, and as I said, I really like the dial, there are some negative aspects.
- The case of little small. I think that one or two additional millimeters would help achieve the perfect size. Interestingly, the relatively small size of the crown, which has a distinctive logo RW, scratching his wrist. I’m not sure that this is due to the fact that I wear a watch too close to the arm, but the softer edges of the crown would help to avoid this.
- While I can close their eyes to the relatively small size of the model, the following are my two complaints have arisen from the moment when I got the watch. The belt is not made of real alligator. Brown is great, but who wants to fake skin in the classical clock? Raymond Weil should either abandon the pattern in the form of an alligator or use the real leather strap.
- While I once again forgive Raymond Weil for rare jewelry mechanisms excuses for the weak rotor decorations I have not. In addition, I found the rotor excessively noisy. This noise is not annoying, but I hear the noise of metal when the rotor rotates. Not sure if this is due to lack of lubrication, or that the rotor comes to sides of the body, either due to the fact that he was a little free, but it is definitely noisy.
- Finally, the model is completely invisible at night. Watches Raymond Weil Maestro Automatic Moon Phase are not the luminescent coating, so at night time cannot be determined without the need of lighting.
