Lemon of a design
on June 5, 2006
I'm on my second defective watch of this style, having just exchanged the first one. The first watch worked fine for a couple of months, and then the date stopped advancing. Sometimes I could get the date to advance by pulling the stem all the way out and adjusting the time, and sometimes the date wouldn't budge except when the stem was halfway out. Once reset, the date might advance for a couple of days before stopping again, or it might not advance at all - it was hit or miss. The watch did always keep time, and the Indiglo feature always worked. I exchanged it for a new watch of the same style, and this second watch stops every night at 11:15. My guess is that this is when the date starts to advance. When I wake up in the morning I can advance the time and the date forward and reset it by pulling the stem all the way out, and then it will tell the time during the day but it will usually stop again the next evening at 11:15. Once it stopped at 2:30 or somewhere thereabouts, but it usually stops at 11:15. Again, the Indiglo feature works fine. I like the styling and big numbers, but having a watch that doesn't tell time kind of defeats the purpose.
