Recently my contract at work finally became permanent so I've got a bit more job security (also a slight promotion).
To commemorate this I wanted to get a watch that was that little bit nice than what I currently have with a better movement. As well as something that looks a bit smarter whilst still having the versatility to be dressed down.
As I have tiny wrists I've learnt via other purchases (one of which I've already sold) that if I want a watch that I can comfortably wear all day it needs to be below 38mm diameter and 46mm lug to lug. The Atlas is 36mm diameter and 43mm lug to lug.
I've had my eye on the Vaer quartz watches as they have a good selection in 36mm. When they announced the Atlas it not only had a blue dial but also a date window as well so it seemed to tick all the boxes for me.
Finally decided on the jubilee bracelet (with some help of the fine people here at Watch Crunch).
Was a bit hesitant ordering as I'm UK based, but the delivery ended up being quicker than domestic UK orders I've had in the past! Also the tax was more straight forward than I expected.
The watch itself is incredibly comfortable on my 16cm/6 and a quarter inch wrist. It's a good weight with the bracelet, not too heavy but still feels solid. Had to take out every single removable link, but I still have one micro adjust position available if needed come winter. Also the primary blue silicone strap is excellent.
Might do a review in a month's time.
