The Valiant is nicely finished; the picture doesn't do justice to the watch At. All. The watch is very nicely appointed, yet is not in the least garish. Its features are tasteful and understated. Overall, the watch boasts classic styling, which I appreciate, yet retains its "up-to-date" look. The choice of hand shape is very sleek and retro looking. I also appreciate that the term "automatic" on the face is written in a more vintage script. Its styling is quite versatile, in that it would be equally at home worn with Jeans, business casual, or a suit. Even though the numbers are Arabic, I think this watch could also go very formal -- matching adequately with evening wear, thanks to its silver face, black numbers and black leather strap. The lugs have elegant styling that set them apart from simply being "part of the case," lending a more detailed, dressy look to the polished stainless case. The face is a brushed, yet glossy silver, providing a sharp, contrasting background for the black numerals and minute/second markers, as well as the black hands. The black leather band is embossed to look like alligator, and sports white, contrasting stitching, which lends a more casual look to its otherwise more dressy appearance. The buckle is polished and matches the case.
The back of the watch is not a skeleton viewport, but is solid, polished stainless steel, and sports Hamilton's crest logo, which is a very nice touch from what one usually finds on the back of a watch case -- very decorative and classy. The crystal is domed sapphire, adding to the vintage ambiance, and is positioned flush with the edge of the case, which adds to the sleek look of the watch. Similarly, the hands are quite narrow and sleek, and the numerals are crisp and unadorned with serifs or other adornments. Overall, the watch presents a very crisp look, including the crown, which is beefy, but not too large for the 40mm face. My wrist is quite small -- about 6.5cm in circumference, and I was a little wary about the 40mm case diameter looking too big (my other Hamilton is a 38mm and is big enough). But with its sleek styling, it wears "smaller" than the typical 40mm watch, yet still features a large enough face to allow me to read the time at-a-glance.
The ETA 2824-2 movement is smooth and reliable -- a tried and true workhorse for which replacement parts will be available for years to come, should they be needed. When I wound the watch out of the box, the crown was tight and substantial, the detents crisp and well-defined. The watch does hack at the second detente, which makes accurate setting a snap. the watch wound very smoothly (although, with the automatic winding feature, you may never have to hand wind it, unless you don't wear it for a while). At full wind, the watch has, I believe, a 40-hour reserve. The date setting (at the first detente) was, likewise, crisp and beefy-feeling.
Since the watch is brand-new, I don't have any idea about its initial accuracy out-of-the-box, but I've been wearing it for about 3 hours, and it's still spot on with GMT.
All-in-all, I'm extremely pleased with the quality and styling of this watch. It has personality without calling attention to itself. It is unique in its appearance, and very, very crisp-looking. If you're someone who wears many different styles, this watch will prove very adaptable, although I will say it's not at all a "sport watch," or an "outdoorsy" watch. This is, in every sense, a gentleman's watch that is stylish, yet unpretentious.
When it arrived, I called my son, 6 years old at the time. I showed him the watch with everything stopped, completely immobile. I shook it a couple of time and the second hand started to run. I explained to this child with wide open eyes that the goal would be to keep this timepiece running for ever. I will give it to him when I'm dead, and he will pass it on to his off spring, etc. He nodded silently, very impressed.
Then I lived with this watch. It has a gorgeous face. It doesn't look cheap at all. On the contrary, it seems sophisticated and elegant. And it stays that way because of the sapphire face plate, it still doesn't have a single scratch! I never felt the movement of the winder inside, it is so smooth and well made.
The story goes that I went through a divorce. A mean, nasty, revengeful one. I started to developp a rash on my wrists. I couldn't wear my dear watch anymore, even if I put it on my left side. My skin was peeling with the band. I fought long and hard. I stayed in contact with my children, I got custody half of the time with them. But the feelings were raw in the family and my watch stopped working. I was wearing at my belt, it banged against something...
I took it to a two bit watch repair man who told me that he couldn't see what was wrong with it, but he could send it in California to get it looked at. It would cost $276, just to get it diagnosed.
Ouch! I left it in the bathroom drawer of the small Appartment I was renting at the time.
It stayed there 2 years. I was broke, and broken.
Then I moved to a new home. Each one of my children had his/her own bedroom, the neighborhood was beautiful, my business improved, my divorce got finalized. My luck started to turn. After two years there, I met someone, an amazing lady I completely fell in love with.
I started to do some research on watch repair man in the city. I found someone that promised to repair it.
He looked at it, told me the watch had a little screw loose inside. He needed to go in the flesh of the mechanism to tighten it. The whole thing would cost me $60.
My wrist band was badly ruined and probably infected by the rash I had developp three years earlier. I decided to get a new one, a different one.
And here we are now. I wear this watch everyday. I was careful at first to switch wrist every two or three days to let my skin breathe and not encounter the same problem as before. And it has worked like a charm. Everyday it gets a good work out, I am a professional drummer. I take it off at night to let it breathe. It tells the time very accurately, maybe a little ahead, one minute or so, every month. I can live with that. I can also live with my wonderful children, I can live in peace, finally, the rest of my life, with this wonderful watch. And my son can wait. He's 11 now. I told him the moral of the story, after the watch stopped, then started working again: life will throw you some formidable challenges, and it's all right, you have plenty of time to solve them, as long as you keep moving and you don't give up.
