26C07 Accutron Telluride Mens Chronograph Watch on Rubber Strap
26C07 Accutron Telluride Mens Chronograph Watch on Rubber Strap

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect Ana-Digi watch, July 30, 2011
This is one of the best watches of its kind and like another reviewer said, both analog and digital work perfectly together.
Works quite well and have had no problems with mine.
Not cheap but well worth the money if you are looking for a great ana-digi watch and this one has a backlight so unlike some of its competition it's quite usable at night.
Very good indeed! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bulova Precisionist, July 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Well done, Bulova!
This is one of those fascinating watches that doesn't cost a fortune just because it's somewhat different.
The main difference is the smooth second hand in a quartz watch that looks like a automatic and this happened with a friend of mine who liked the watch and by looking at it said that it was a automatic. He was amazed when i told him that it was a quartz watch!

The watch is quite nice and extremely precise, love that mineral crystal but would be better if it was sapphire however that would mean a higher cost and in this case, I find it quite affordable for such a nice watch!
Highly recommended and a great Amazon experience again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect limited edition watch from Citizen, April 10, 2011
This is a gorgeous watch!
Limited edition ( 2500 units ), has a saphire glass and its features are various and great.
Light enough, very confortable and in my opinion, one of the best watches Citizen ever made!
200m water resistant is a plus but i don't intend to ever swim with it.

Also, it has a alarm fuction but i never used it and in chrono mode, the second hand acts like a mechanical watch, smooth movement of the hand and it has to be seen to be believed! :)
Perfect watch or close to perfection.
This one is a keeper! Hope it will last a long time!
Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool watch, great price, September 11, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i had read a lot about these Orient mako watches, enough to get so curious to the point i had to get one and see for myself.
Price was great and delivery by Amazon US( via UPS ) was as fast as it could be! :) Great service from Amazon as always!

It's light enough to wear without feeling you have a weight in your wrist and keeps good time so far. Still, too new to make any conclusions about accuracy.
The day it arrived i had left home to beach so sadly it didn't go with me that day but will do so someday.
However i trust it will hold it's own below water without any problem unless you really want to go deep.

Watch face makes light reflexions on it's blue face, great and has to be seen( Youtube has some videos where you can watch this reflexion quite well ).
Mineral cristal makes some sun reflexion effect that i found weird at first but no problem at all and even seems curious, looks like it has spherical reflexions in some angles.

Looks more expensive than it is and seems to be a great value for such a nice watch so i do recommend it also.
I also like the yellow or orange faces but who knows, at this price maybe i'll get one of those later on.
Also available in black but since i already had a black diver Citizen automatic watch and no blue watch in my collection, this came perfect! ;)

My girlfriend liked it too and we're now thinking of giving one to her nephew as a present, at this price it's a great choice and maybe then i'll think about that yellow or orange model for me! :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice price for such a watch!, October 26, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this because i love this kind of watches and also because i hadn't had any Casio watch for years. Great choice!
Keeps good time and it's beautiful. 200m so it's ok to use it in water just be careful not to use the light button underwater. Don't know if anyone used this below water but other than this light button, should be ok.
Speaking of light, this has two leds that can illuminate a keyhole or the next few steps in a staircase, it's that bright and strong!!! Great!

I gave this watch to my son and he loves it!
The only complain i have is the rubber/plastic band, it's not very comfortable and too hard, more than my dive watches! ( these are hard enough but not this hard,you can buy a different band ). Also, you have the option to buy this model with a stainless steel band but it will be heavier.
The screw down crown is a good feature in this kind of watch.
Looks great and for this low price i think you will not regret buying one!
Amazon was very fast in delivering the watch, great service!
Would buy it again!

Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different! Useful., October 26, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nice watch, different from all other watches i own.
Very useful features and very comfortable altough a big watch.
The indiglo green light is beautiful to watch! Has to be seen to be believed, smooth, perfect!

This is a somewhat busy dial so sometimes it's a bit confusing. Practice makes perfect and you do get used to it.
Big watch but fits well and it's thin enough to use when you wear tight clothes, so no problem with it.
I don't use the tide fuction but the temperature fuction is something i keep looking at and compass is also nice to have.
Very comfortable strap with a nice feeling to it.
Took some time to arrive...

Very good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great watch for it's price!, October 26, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this watch to use in situations where i wouldn't want to risk using another watch but found it so nice that for the price, it has no flaws!

It has light, chrono, alarms... for this price you just can't ask for more!!!
In such a cheap watch, so many features will have you smiling, great value!
Band is indeed very thin so maybe it will not last that much but by then you will be able to buy a new watch. At this price, that's a non-issue!

My girlfriend loved it too and said the same thing, she may well use it also.
Perfect for the price and very accurate.
Very light, as expected. A all use watch, will hold it's own in water also.
A good "friend" that will go everywhere with you without worries!

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun fun fun, October 26, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a fun watch and excels in that.
Everyone i showed this watch to finds it very cool and questions me about it.
It's the kind of watch you will keep loosing minutes just by looking at it, it's great to see it working since most of the movement is easily seen, seems to be alive. :)

Mine is actually very accurate, i compared it to a atomic Casio and found that it doesn't loose time as i expected, not bad at all!
Simple, you just wind it to keep it working, no extras but the extra in these watches is looks. It looks great!
In my case, the 6 is actually correct: VI instead of IV that some said it has. :)
It's such a fun watch to have that i forget it has a chinese movement, i don't care because it's so nice in all other aspects!

I have the golden version which is more flashy than i wanted because everyone notices it! Maybe the grey version is not that flashy.
Seller was great and watch arrived very fast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive!, October 26, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the sort of watch that will be noticed!
Some will love it, some will hate it and that is seen in these reviews.
Mixed reviews and for a good reason:

This is a beautiful watch, design is awesome, weight is somewhat light but it doesn't feel plastic and that's because it's stainless steel. Not heavy, like some reviewers mention but it i think that makes this watch very confortable exactly because of that.

At this price, i thought it was a good purchase, and i'm very happy with it.
Keeps good time, mine doesn't loose that many minutes as some said but this is not the kind of watch you look for accuracy, it's a fun watch to wear and in that case, it's very cool.
It's flashy, too much perhaps. I agree that this watch seems very ambitious since everyone will notice that golden "thing" in your wrist and it certainly seems like a expensive watch.

It has indeed a chinese movement so this is not that great jewerly many were saying it should be but it's not expensive and as such i think people are beeing a bit harsh when saying this is not a high quality piece. You get what you payed for: a fun, cheap enough watch that looks awesome. Design is above all other qualities with this watch but that's ok for the price and i can't find anything like it anywhere! That's great! :) It is unique and impressive!
You will not find another watch in this price range that looks like this. Compact and nice to look at, perfect for parties! ;)

Like our friend from Moscow says, be carefull when using the watch in dangerous places because it will atract attentions and seems very expensive. That could get you to be robbed with such a shiny thing in your wrist!

Pointers are difficult to see in anything but good light but then again, you buy this watch for looks, not function. ;)
Not the easiest watch to wind because crown is too close to case but other than that, i have no complaints.
Nice to have in your collection unless you only like superior, non chinese watches.
Very happy with my purchase, seller was very fast in sending the watch and arrived in perfect condition. Like many said, the wooden box is a delight and i use it ( as manual describes ) to keep some of my unused watches.


Accutron Men's 26C07 Telluride Digital Chronograph Watch
Accutron Men's 26C07 Telluride Digital Chronograph Watch

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, October 26, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This watch is a gem.
It's a mix beetween the Breitling B1, Victorinox or Tag formula1 Ana-digi but simple at the same time.
Very comfortable indeed, it's a bit thick and perfect in weight ( not too light, not too heavy )sits perfectly in your wrist.

The night light is a plus, something most other watches like this Accutron don't have. In daylight, the digital numbers are not that much visible but that gives this watch a unique style making it discrete, altough you can use it without the digital display on and then it's a classic "kinda" watch, very very nice. ;)
Has a daily alarm and a normal alarm which is a nice feature for a watch of this kind.
Can be used anytime except for swimming, but this is not the kind of watch you take to the beach or pool, imho.

Exceptional value, great watch!
Highly recommended!
