This product is WONDERFUL if you don't care if it works
on March 6, 2014
I saw so many mixed reviews about this watch, but decided to take a chance on it. And for the first 24 hours, I wasn't disappointed. It's beautiful, and kept time really well!
You know, right up until it stopped working the next day. First the hands all stopped moving even though it was properly wound. Then my husband played with it, just resetting the time and such, and the hands started moving again. Well, the second hand did. And occasionally the minute hand. (Like, every couple of hours.) But the hour hand still wouldn't move.
Thankfully, I was able to get a refund without having to return it. I'm going to take it to a shop near us to see if they can fix it, but they may not be able to because the metal inside is too cheap. But seriously, if you want a nice-looking cheap watch for a prop in a play or with a steampunk costume or something, this one is AWESOME. So beautiful! But if you want something functional, don't bother.
