Other: The bright white "cross-hair" dial on this Amsley is without a doubt its most standout feature - We love the funky art-deco numerals and trapezoid-shaped date window! Red numerals on the date wheel add a subtle pop of color to the piece, and the matching internal crystal magnifier reminds us of the legendary Universal Genève Polerouter. These details paired with a deep rose gold-tone case make it a unique watch that's hard to beat for under $350.
