Nice looking watch that you can wear daily without feeling too bad if it gets a few dings
on December 31, 2013
Bought this watch as a Lightning deal and I must say it was a steal. It came in a cool (if somewhat over the top) yellow shock-proof case, which was a plus. The watch itself looked quite nice and I have gotten a few compliments. My only complaints:
1) The crown seemed a bit too easy to turn, so that after you set the time and push it back in, it twists a bit and the time gets moved too. You thus have to push the crown back in real careful.
2) The watch is quite hefty. But it's to be expected I guess, since it is a big metal watch.
A word to prospective buyers though - the watch band is very large/long by default (on top of having a big watch body). You will almost certainly need to re-size it unless you have HUGE wrists. And even when re-sizing you can only take off 3 links from each side (6 total) because the other links closest to the main watch/bezel cannot be removed. This is because the pins that attach them are not exposed. After taking off six links you can make the band just a bit tighter since the connection of the band to the clasp is adjustable a couple notches. So this watch is not for those with small wrists. As a rough guide, if on a regular leather/rubber watch strap you need to go tighter than the fifth or fourth hole nearest the watch body, this watch will be too big for you. As it is, my wrist is just at the limit.
