Beautiful time piece
on June 21, 2014
My 17yr old was wanting a pocket watch and I had NO idea where to find one. I am really ignorant of time pieces, so I was using the Amazon customer reviews as a guide. Buying something like this sight unseen makes me very nervous. My son loves steampunk and my first inclination was to get one the ones I'd seen while browsing the watches on Amazon. Unfortunately the steampunk ones that I saw - while beautiful looking - had many reviews that stated that the watches stopped working after two weeks or so (second hands falling off, not keeping accurate time, etc) or that when the watches arrived they were made from cheaper materials than expected. I finally happened upon this watch and reviews were solid. Sturdy construction, beautiful to look at at, and if the reviews were to be trusted, accurate time keeping. It was CRAZY marked down, so I took a chance. It arrived in a nice box and it was really beautiful to see/open. My son nearly lost his mind when he opened it (very unexpected gift). It's been 10 days since I gave it to him and it's working like a champ. I will update this review if it stops working, but so far, so good.
