Decision made to return it about 30 minutes after receiving it

Extremely disappointed with this one.
I picked it up as a Lightning Deal for $45. It had a clean, classic look to it. I'd find out it also had a problem keeping time.
The watch packaging and presentation were great. In fact, they seemed better than the watch, itself. Although it appeared as it did on line, I have to say, it had kind of a cheap feel to it. I realize there are all grades of every material. (Keep in mind, too. It was a slim design. I wasn't expecting the heft you'd find in other watches.) The leather strap seemed more like a synthetic. The clasp seemed more plastic than medal. The big issue was the watch's inability to keep time. I set it 3 times shortly after opening it. Within five minutes, it had lost 2 to 3 minutes. (On the third attempt, it seemed more like 4 minutes.)
I know, it could have been a battery issue, but I didn't think it was worth exchanging. Within hours, I dropped it off to a UPS Customer Center to be returned.
NO COMPLAINTS about Amazon.com. Refund was credited shortly after the watch began its journey back.
Bottom line: The watch wasn't worth it at $45; I can't imagine paying more for it.
