Good value - Good looks
on June 2, 2013
Add a little class to your look with a wrist watch. I know, now-a-days everybody just uses their phone to tell the time. That isn't the point though, this is as much of an appearance item as it is a practical one.
The watch is a quality build. The metal frame is well weighted and has a glossy burgundy brown paint coat that matches well with many clothing combinations. It also keeps time accurately, I set it when I got it 3 months ago and haven't had to reset it since. The size is perfect (even for my tiny frame) and the numbering is large and easy to read. Overall it is a slick looking watch that works for everyday use.
I have a few gripes with this watch though. My biggest complaint is the "glow in the dark" paint on the numbers and hands - it works, sure, but only for 20-30 seconds. Basically you won't be reading the time in darker conditions because they don't hold their glow, at all. It also would have been nice to have a date function. The strap is obviously of lower quality but once broken in, works just fine.
Overall this is a quality watch for those looking to purchase one to wear everyday. This product will add class to your appearance and matches well with most clothing options. You will also save time and effort (and phone battery) whenever you feel compelled to check the time. The build quality is solid, and besides the fact that this is a basic timepiece, I'd recommend it to anyone in the market.
I have now had this watch for well over a year and I do not regret the purchase one bit. Unfortunately the strap just broke off while I was doing some laundry. I'm honestly surprised it survived this long, I have absolutely beat the hell out of this watch. This thing has been on my wrist almost every day for the past year, except for when I lent it to my girlfriend while she was in jury duty (she loved the watch because of the large numbers). I will definitely be purchasing another one of these in the near future. Until then, my girlfriend and I will be thinking of a way to repurpose our dearly departed friend.
