The quality of this watch is excellent, and so far it seems extremely accurate. The bracelet is one of the best I've seen, and very comfortable.
Luckily, mine fitted perfectly out of the box, but be aware that it doesn't come with any extra bracelet links; if you have large wrists then I'd recommend getting in touch with the helpful people at Iguana Sell before purchasing, to make sure it will fit (or you can get some extra links supplied with it).
I got a great price too; my only regret is that I didn't wait until Black Friday, as now it's even cheaper!

This pen looks and feels even better than in the pictures. The ‘Honeycomb’ marble finish along with the gold trim are quite stunning. I chose an extra fine nib as I write in a small space in a daily diary and it suits me perfectly - very pleased
Love this pen. As an avid collector this was a grail pen for me and it is already a favourite. The feel of the lava barrel is like no other, and the workmanship excellent. Highly recommended.
The Sailor 1911, Large, is perhaps, not as big as you may consider; it is not small by any means, rather more, a medium sized pen. That said, this will sit well in anybody’s hand (except the most diminutive). Finished in a high gloss, black resin, & this model, accented in Rhodium - you can select the gold or Rose gold, but my preference is for silvered cap bands, clips & nibs.
In all the fountains I possess, Sailor has to have the most beautifully decorated nibs on the planet - & I am not alone in that assertion: laser etched engraving, then finely polished, make this writing instrument stand out in the crowd. As with many Sailor models, it comes in a variety of colours & three sizes - Standard, Large, & ‘King Of Pen(s)’, & accordingly, vary in price range.
The model I chose is outfitted with a Medium Fine 21K Rhodium plated nib, with the smallest degree of flexion (this is not categorised as a semi-flex/flex nib - all Sailor nibs are of a Hard designation); if you’re careful you may be able to squeeze a little line variation out - but do not push it ! Feedback with this nib is more than with, say, a Medium, but it does offer both fine & medium lines, dependent upon the attitude of blade to paper (angle).
The writing experience is pleasant & consistent; build quality, superb.
If you favour a piston-fill mechanism, the Realo range - in both ‘1911’ & ‘Professional Gear’ is readily available, but again, commands a commensurate price tag.
Delightfully engineered writing implement.
