Got this watch TWO TIMES - both times something was wrong
on July 9, 2015
Beautifully designed watch face but HORRIBLE craftsmanship.
First time I got this watch, the knob wouldn't change the date and when I tried to change the time, the minute hand jumped (i.e. not a smooth motion so impossible to set it to a precise minute). I requested a replacement. Amazon made that extremely easy. Great.
I should have learned from that first time that I should keep the Amazon box in case I want to ship something back...
I got the watch again. This time, the date and time were perfectly adjustable. I almost took the protective plastic off the watch face. But then, I tried to adjust the clasp to my size (and I admit, I have very small wrists). I had no reason to believe this wouldn't work because the clasp adjusted to my PERFECT size the first time. However, this time, the indentations in the stainless steel band that allow you to set the clasp in a certain place didn't extend as far as it did for the first watch I got, meaning I couldn't make the watch as small as I could the first time. So... the band is too long and the watch flops on my wrist. No way around it.
Also, the box/packaging that it came in the 2nd time was much nicer than the box it came in the first time around. Weird.
It's so pretty I'm going to try to make it work by taking it to a watch shop to see if they can make it fit my wrist but it has an adjustable clasp and more importantly, the size was right the first time I got the watch! I shouldn't have to take this to the watch shop. Ugh
