Citizen AW1018-55e – My first real watch

I got this Citizen AW1018-55e Eco-Drive Stealth Black Steel, 42mm from my mother for my 18th birthday (2012) back in Taiwan. It marks the day where I officially attained young adulthood.

Lew and Huey Watch Company

If you had to make and “elevator pitch” of Lew and Huey, what would you say?
