3.0 out of 5 stars NICE WATCH....but a slight dissapointment..., June 26, 2008
This review is from: Eric Edelhausen "Dorado" Men's Gold Plated Automatic Skeleton (Watch)
I saw the watch and base on the pictures , was very captivated by it. I personally own a BAUME MERCIER Capeland model and was expecting a awesome piece. here's my thoughts: I do agree with some reviews about the weight..it feels very light , like there is no substance to it...almost "plasticky". For a retail of $798..I was expecting a heavier watch.
Other reviews are correct about the time hands blending in with the background...IT IS VERY HARD TO SEE THE TIME. buy this more for the look , because you will definitely have a hard time see the time hands.
The packaging is nice with a nice box. The phamplets and manual are very simple, nothing special. No country of origins on anything it comes in. NONE, NADA, ZILCH.
I actually contemplated sending it bsck because i was dissapointed at first, i decided to wear it for a few days so be sure.
I found that IT IS VERY EYE CATCHING. people will ask you about it and if you need a conversation starter...this will work. I actually grew to like it and am keeping it. For $198 ( what I paid ) it's not too bad for a watch piece...i don't know if this will be an HEIRLOOM PIECE, i doubt it, but it is nice looking so for sentimental value it does have an appeal.
It is now part of my wardrobe with my other watches. if you are looking for a skeleton watch, this is not too bad of a choice...it will do fine. If you are expecting too much...this may not be the watch for you.
but $198 for this watch is fair. I guess I will recommend it.
