For the price, is a cool watch that tells the time. The complications are non-functional, just painted on the face, but I wouldn't really use them if they worked. I like the big watch look, so I like it. I was able to adjust the time with no issues. The screw-on stem cover is also just for looks; it doesn't keep any water out. The button is also just for looks; it doesn't do anything except let water in. I expect that the non-SS base metal will start corroding due to skin salts after some wear, but will not be very noticeable against the black finish. The cheap-o band is too large, I had to drill a couple of extra holes so it would fit my wrist.
Update: The watch works fine when it is sitting on the counter, but when I wear it, it unexpectedly stops from time to time; replacing the battery did not help. I talked the Youyoupifa people into sending me another one, but that one came with the minute hand loose from its spindle. I'll have to take it apart and see if I can reattach it. Pretty poorly made, but only $7. Usually you get what you pay for.
Update 2: I was able to get the minute hand back on the replacement watch and found that the problem with the original watch was that the crown was screwed too far onto the stem. Now I have two watches that work fine and I get compliments on the looks.
