another cool feature of the watch is that is sweep stops or "hacks" when you pull the crown out. Speaking of the crown, it is a screw down. the fan blades turn as the sweep moves and the date is set via a push pin. and the strap is excellent! Orginal MSRP was 185, and I got it for 50% off. I guess in another few months if still available they maybe furhter discounted.
