If you watched the video, you will know that the only issue I had with the Erroyl Heritage 300, which by the way is limited and numbered to 300 pieces only, was the sizing of the bracelet. As I talked about, this could have been just this sample, and the others are issue free. So far, after a few weeks, the links in the bracelet are just fine and I have had no other problems. The sizing was for sure a pain, but it happens sometimes. Hopefully Erroyl checks others over before shipping out to be free of this problem.
Beyond that, this is a gorgeous watch. The mirror polished case lends itself to luxury, and the royal blue dial is striking. Now, you might say, how good can it be? Trust me, some of my photos while I tried to capture it do not do this dial justice. It’s neither over branded nor overly flashy. It is just done right with the concentric circles and the right shade of royal blue. Applied chrome Roman Numerals and rectangle markers, along with a chrome handset complete the dial, along with the date at the 3 o’clock position.
The stamped caseback gives you that “royalty” feeling as well. There is a theme throughout this watch: Classic, luxurious, and minimal. The back uses 6 screws to attach and seal to the case, and the Royal 300 is water resistant to 100m. While this is probably not the watch you will be hopping in the pool with (unless you are a college student at a wild frat party and someone throws you in), it is nice to see more than a 50m water resistance and know you can get it wet without issue. I would still be careful as the crown is a push/pull, and hey, things happen. So maybe leave the water sports for the Rolex or G-shock (or slew of other capable dive or sport watches).
On my 7-½ inch wrist, the Errol Heritage 300 fits very comfortably, and I have found myself reaching for it in the past few weeks more than others. Maybe it is because I like the understated size, or maybe it’s just the blue dial. Four links were removed (angrily) for a perfect fit on my wrist.
Even with the bracelet link issue, which again, could just have been my example, it is hard to overlook the value here. At $300, in the micro brand world, there are not a massive amount of options. And of the ones that are, they rarely have both an auto movement in the form of a Miyota 9015, and a sapphire crystal. And these days, most everything is a sport watch, or a dive watch. Personally, this is truly one of the nicest dress watches I have seen at this price in quite awhile. When you factor all the components, the limited quantity of 300 being produced and the included DHL international shipping, it is a hard deal to beat.
