Great - inexpensive watch
on January 22, 2013
I bought one of these from Amazon and am frankly delighted. It does exactly what I wanted or needed in a 'bang around' watch. Only better than I anticipated.
I own a lot of watches, as they are realistically the only jewelry I wear, and I like to know the time. There were a few questions and issues listed on the owner comments and I was concerned about the band length and one other 'issue'.
As measured while on the watch, the length of the band from the end of the buckle to the end of the strap is 9.5 inches (24cm). The last hole measures out at 8.25 inches (21cm). The smallest hole on the band measures at 6.125 inches or 15.5 cm.These will give you the approximate circumference of the band. If your wrist measures larger, wear it and it might stretch enough to fit. Otherwise ...
I have fairly good size wrists - I fit at the third hole from the end of the strap. After wearing it for a few days, the band is fitting more loosely. It is after all, nylon and it will stretch a bit.
Now for the other issues ... the Indiglo feature is astounding on this watch! It is bright and clear and highly legible. The face on the watch is large enough that in the dark it looks like a street sign. The other thing which concerned me was the lens / watch face. I couldn't ascertain from the pix or the description but - it is slightly recessed in the bezel by maybe 1 to 1.5mm. So - scratches and dings should be kept to a minimum as long as I'm not wearing while doing any blacksmithing.
I am completely satisfied with this watch and during summer with the sweat season ... I'll just wash the band in a light solution of ammonia to get rid of the oils and the dirt. It's that simple.
