Much nicer than expected! Absolutely thrilled!
on March 15, 2012
I purchased this watch for my 80 year old father after he told me a story about wanting a Mickey Mouse watch with moveable hands when he was a young boy but coming from a very poor family, he never got one. Although now he could easily afford to go out and buy himself one, he never has. I got this for him for Christmas after looking all over ebay and several other sites which were all extremely expensive and it was difficult to find one that had the moving hand action. When I found this, it looked perfect, especially the flexible band (which is all he wears). The price was nowhere near the range I had been seeing ($39 I believe or somewhere in that area when others were hundreds of dollars), so I wasn't actually expecting anything special. However, when it arrived, it was gorgeous! Solid, tough and beautiful as well. Although Mickey Mouse is definitely in there waving his arms around throughout the day, it doesn't look like a "kids" watch, but rather, an adult watch. Very stylish and functions perfectly.
My father was bowled over when he received it and his eyes welled up. He stared at it for a long time, looking it over from top to bottom and then put it on. He took his older more expensive watch off right there and put on his new one and smiled for the rest of the afternoon. My father is a very dignified man and always looks his best and one would think that a Mickey Mouse watch would make him look silly but he wears that watch every day with pride and can't help but show people when he meets them. This was hands down the best gift I've ever given him. I would absolutely recommend this product and the seller as well. The craftsmanship is beautiful and I actually feel like I got the better end of this deal.
