Bad: I suspect it may be a franken; dial color/indices are a little casual for ultra-formal wear; not sure if crown is original style or not

But as I said before, I'd always wanted a respectable watch with a green face and this has a very very nice one; pictures can't really capture the very subtle starburst which is quite attractive. I probably overpaid for it, but it makes me happy, so whiskey tango foxtrot.
very nice sir....
