This review is from: YouYouPifa Specials White Skeleton Dail Brown Leather Strap Automatic Mechanical Watch (Watch)
This is a beautiful skeleton watch that is aesthetically pleasing with the detailing on the silver plates and the bold contrast of the blue hands. The clockwork inside, from the winding clutch to the constantly turning sweep wheel, is worth admiring and certainly keeps me entertained when I'm watching it before an appointment.

If you're a novice to automatic watches (meaning self-winding) like I was, it'll take time for you to get used to remembering to wind the watch once or twice a day. If you're prone to fidgeting, a manual wind watch is the thing for you as it'll give you something productively fiddly (as you are in no danger of overwinding).

I find that between the silver and the leather band, it offsets the "bling" factor of the bright gold and can be therefore worn casually. However, the straps proved too large and bulky for me (as a woman) and I ended up replacing the band with a gold bracelet that made the watch look too fancy for casual outings, but it's good for work, evening outings, and more formal occasions.

This doesn't have the look of a traditional woman's watch, but if you do like a more masculine look with a delicate beauty brought on by the clockwork, this will be a good fit for you, especially if you appreciate a full round face. But be warned it is fairly large. I have a slender wrist so it covers the entire width of my wrist and sits pretty high on top. However, I did get this watch with the intent that it be noticeable, so it only adds to its appeal.
