Great idea to have a good looking counter if only the single counter was as secure as the 10 dial. And you can't lock it so you can't rely on the single counter to not slip to another number - making it completely unreliable.
I ordered this item, after having received a Debra's Garden needle gauge which I wear as a pendant (and get glowing compliments every time I wear it!)I thought this would be every bit as pretty as the needle gauge, but this thing blew my away when it arrived! It is way more beautiful than I expected - and I know I will use it loads when I am traveling with a project where pencil and paper are not practical. Yes, it's a little pricey, but you will use it for years - and you can also consider it an investment in quality costume jewelry which will be the envy of all who see it.
