My wife is obsessed with Zebras and products with zebra stripes. No, she won't go out in public with complete zebra striped and matching outfit (at least I hope!) but she owns many zebra striped purses, jackets, paintings, etc, so I decided to be an enabler and add another to the collection!
How the watch looks is great. There is definitely nothing wrong with how the watch appears to others. It doesn't look cheap and it is definitely solid feeling.
However, there are definitely a few things to notice. The clock hands act a little fun. While it definitely keeps time in general, the hands don't exactly point to the right time all the time. It is as if the gear mechanism was created sloppily. However, it IS indeed keeping time, the hands just point on a slight deviation for whatever reason on occasion. The CZ accent stones are adequate. They look good enough to just glance at. The one thing is, when you do examine the watch, all the stones are not placed in entirely straight. Most of them are, but there are a couple that are either shaped irregularly or just placed a bit diagonally. So it looks awkward to someone with such attention to detail as myself, but for practical purposes they look good enough. Finally, some may want to switch the band out. It is obviously meant to be cheap. While it is indeed soft, and when I tried it on it felt fine, my wife disliked it because it caused her wrist to sweat underneath it so we switched to a metal band and it was fine for her.
I want to rate this more a 4.5 instead of a 4 or 5. It is definitely not perfect, but I can't really fault this for a 4 either since you CANNOT complain for something that costs just about $10 with shipping and looks and feels this decent especially for the purpose of just having another zebra striped item. There aren't too many zebra striped watches at this price as I did a lot of looking around on the web. However, I am definitely glad I made this choice!

Ordered several as Christmas gifts, they are even cuter than in the pic. Very satisfied, would purchase again. I ordered this through Amazon as I have done many times and was once again amazed with the service.
