I really like the design of this watch and have received many compliments. The face is thick and feels sturdy and the strap is leather on the inside, and silicone on the outside (giving the appearance of leather). I think this was done to make the strap last longer.
My biggest disappointment with this watch is that the accuracy of the watch went down the tubes after 2 months of accurate time keeping. One day it just stopped randomly, and it doesn't matter if wind the crown or shake it, it hasn't worked right since. It will keep time for 5 - 30 minutes then stop, then start again, then stop, or slow down. I wish it had a battery.
To set the time, you must pull the crown, which is standard for watches. But I get different results each time I pull the crown. Sometimes, it will click when I set the time, and sometimes it does not restart when I push the crown back in. After reading other people's reviews I am starting to question the quality of the parts.
The watch comes with a warranty and I mailed the watch off to be serviced. Shipping fees to mail off the broken watch cost about $20 (including the fee to mail it back). This watch doesn't seem to be a good value for the money.
