At 46mm wide, the watches are large - and shiny. The aluminum cases have been done in a glossy finish in seven different colors. In addition to the above red watch, the 314 Hercules collection is available in blue, carbon (blackish), gray, pink, violet, and yellow. These colors make the watch suitable for men and women, but the overall design is more on the masculine side (I guess not in pink though). The dial is fine, but the hands are too short. This is likely due to the large size of the watch and the quartz movement used. There is a serious problem these days with hands, because quartz movements can only accommodate hands that weigh a certain amount. Larger dials mean the necessity for larger hands, and the majority of quartz movements out there can't handle the weight. I really can't wait until new quartz movements come out that can handle larger, properly sized hands.
The 314 Hercules Aluminum watches come on rubber straps with a price of $325 each. Not too bad for a summer color injection.
