First, even the description doesn't match the photos. The band is clearly brown in the photos and I doubt it's leather. If anything it's a bonded leather that doesn't look good and won't last long.
The dial was not blue. It wasn't quit red either so I'm pretty sure I didn't get the red version by mistake. The dial is a wine/burgundy color. In person it looks very unattractive and doesn't go well with the band and I don't think I own any wine colored clothes that would go well with the watch.
It didn't come with a box either as the description stated.
The case feels way too light to be stainless steel when compared to other watches I own that I know are stainless.
There's a subdial at 6 o'clock for seconds which is completely redundant since there's a second hand. The big seconds hand is necessary because of the tachymeter bezel. The two seconds hands are not in sync. You can even see that in the photos.
It's nearly impossible to set the time accurately as there's no way to stop or set the seconds. On most mechanical watches the seconds hand is either stopped on it's own when you go to set the time or it can be stopped by turning the crown backwards (back hacking). The only way to set the time accurately is to wait for the watch to lose energy and stop, then set the time and wind it and you can get close. Even then the accuracy of the watch doesn't seem that great. Some days it's been off a few seconds, others a few minutes.
The case back says water resistant but if you unscrew the back there's no o-ring so I wouldn't think it could even handle being dropped in a sink.

However, please be aware that:
* there are no instructions provided
* it ships from china, so it takes time to get there (10 days)
* my little dial for the seconds is off-sync with the main, seconds-dial (by about 4 seconds) and I haven't been able to figure out how to get it in sync
* clock WILL stop when you don't wear it for a day and you will have to wind it (i hope i'm turning it the correct direction)
It was $13 and looks like a much more expensive watch. I would _highly recommend_ this watch, even with the small issues.
Negative - no instructions, did not like the strap, but it can be replaced.
The good: watch actually works! The winding rotor seems operational and date changes. For $10 price that's quite an achievement.
The ok: looks predictably gaudy with case finishing that is not going to impress anyone. There are two seconds hands and they are out of sync. Did I mention it's $10?
The bad: crown broke off after first 12 hours of use of the watch. Will not take it to watchmaker as they will likely charge more to reattach the crown than this watch is worth.
Once again, for $10 this watch performed quite admirably.
Also did not come with a black gift box. But the Watch does work, I ended up contacting the seller due to some of the issues and they were very helpful in getting everything resolved. If you are looking for a inexpensive automatic watch and not worried about a gift box or exactly what color watch band it has then I would definately recommend this watch.
