  1. I like the execution of some SevenFriday watches replica watches sale more than others. The minute hand begins with a large wheel with spokes style design and has a smaller hand jutting out of it. The hour hand, by comparison, is a bit hidden replica watches sale underneath. It is not difficult to read, but isn't a model of legibility. The dial, like the case, is full of whimsical design elements that play out as a sort of satire on industrial design. SevenFriday watches don't take themselves ultra seriously because they aren't trying to be tool watches. Rather, they are trying to be rolex replica uk interesting, gadgety fashion watches for men who don't use the term "fashion" in their vocabulary. With that said, not all of the text on the dial or the indicators on the rear of the watch make sense–nor do they rolex replica uk need to. The dial of the SevenFriday P watches has some intentionally superfluous text and it is easy to criticize elements on the rear of the case such as the picture of replica watches sale the Scuba diver indicating the water resistance rating.
