Looks great, but stopped working,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stuhrling Original Men's 460G.331516 Classic Delphi Avon Mechanical Skeleton Black Leather Strap Watch (Watch)
First of all, let me say that if the watch hadn't stopped working properly I would have rated it as 5 stars. I absolutely love the way this watch looks, feels, sounds... Hell I'm sure I would even like the way it smelled if I had the inclination to sniff my wrist from time to time. When I received the watch it came in a nice box with all the packaging you would want to ensure the watch arrived damage free. Inside the box there was also paperwork verifying the authenticity of the watch which was a concern of mine when I made the purchase. The bracelet started off very firm, but that's pretty normal and after under a month of every-other-day wear it has softened up and feels good.
At expected that the watch would be hard to read just looking at the picture online, since there was so much to distract the eye and the markings were so small around the edge of the face. I am happy to report that is not the case. The markings are just big enough to be easy to read without encroaching on the beauty of the movement.
Unfortunately that brings me to the only bad thing about the watch, and why I gave it only 2 stars. I received it on March 1st, and like I said above I only wore it every other day at most. When it wasn't on my wrist it was in my watch box in my closet away from any potential danger. When it was on my wrist it was treated very delicately; I never banged it against anything or even violently shook my arm. Even so, here it is March 25th and it has stopped working properly. The watch is running at more than double time, moving about an hour in just under 30 minutes. Obviously this is now unusable as a timepiece, and I am already in the process of returning it.
As always though, Amazon is amazing with their return policy and is already overnighting me a replacement watch. I will update this review with my experiences with the new one.
