Pros

Since polo is quite a strenuous sport, watches worn by its players have to be as durable and resistant as the men. Such is the reason why Pablo Mac Donough created this new masterpiece: a strong and heavy-duty timepiece that will still be as good as new even after a rough game of polo. While this is the second collaborative watch with the Argentinian polo player, this particular piece has a more functional design than the first and it has comparatively stronger durability. Beyond the posh sport, hikers, travelers, and other athletic and adventurous men can wear this watch wherever and whenever making it a truly versatile piece.

Cons

As useful as the watch is on the field or on the court, it’s not as helpful when simply telling the time. Compact with transparencies and a multitude of screws and bulbs, the dial presents a complicated and complex face that relatively obscured the time features. Wearers can find it confusing to tell the time with almost all the features of the watch evident on the face. Additionally, the numerals and hands are not as visible, making it more difficult for the owner to simply tell the time.
