This is my second LIV watch and I'm psyched that I pulled the trigger to get it. The dial is very easy to read, especially with the silver hands contrasting with the blue and black background. I love chronograph watches and having the day and date feature is especially handy during this pandemic when every day seems to be the same.
The leather band is very appealing and with solid craftsmanship. I wash my hands very often and try not to get the strap wet, but it happens, so time will tell as to how the leather will hold up. I am a little surprised at how short the actual band is. My wrist size is pretty average, and certainly not large. I'm currently using the 2nd to last hole on this band and with this leather strap, there is only 1/3 to half an inch left sticking out of the loops when the loops are pressed up against the strap buckle. Usually I have at least an inch or more to tuck into strap loops.
If you have a large wrist, consider getting a canvas, metal, or rubber strap instead. I will likely be changing to a canvas strap.
I still rate this watch at 5 stars and love wearing my Rebel-DDC Cobalt!
