Very Intricate Watch,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mens Mechanical Skeleton Watch Hand Wind Up Silver Dial Black Leather Strap MW-07 (Watch)I really like this watch - the design is very intricate and you can see the gears moving through the glass case.
This automatic watch, i.e., no battery, winds itself by the movement of the wrist. Once it gets going, you can see the gears moving through the glass dial. The face of the watch, where it is not see-through glass, has some very intricate, stylized etchings. Swiss Movement is also etched on the face along with the watch maker name. It has Roman Numerals at each hour mark.
The silver face and watch case make this a very elegant watch (if you prefer gold, there are very similar watches on Amazon that have gold cases).
For such an intricately designed Swiss watch, it is priced very reasonably. For this price, I guess they had to cut corners somewhere, and that would be the watch band. Although it is leather, it is very stiff. It would take many a wearing to break-in this leather to make it soft and supple.
For the great design, its Swiss heritage and the extraordinary value at this price, I rate this watch 5 Stars.

The watch's description says it has a winding mechanism, but you say it's an automatic? Watches with automatic movement don't require winding.
