This watch consistently retails for between $100-$135 on the internet. When it went on sale for a week here it went down to about $65. A good deal but I passed. Towards the end of the week I looked at it again and was shocked to see it listed for $19.99!! I have no idea how or why that happened but I tend to think it was a mistake on Amazon's part as this watch was part of a group of other watches by Armitron on sale on the same deal page and maybe two prices were transposed or something. In any case you've never seen anyone click the "add to cart" button so fast. Ha.

As far as the watch itself is concerned, it's a beaut. Stylish, interesting and heavy. It's fun watching the movement do it's thing. It's an automatic so don't expect it to be as accurate as a quartz watch, but it's still within a 30 seconds every couple days from what I can see. Fine for what I use the watch for. This is one of the best deals I've ever gotten on Amazon and I couldn't be happier.

This watch has an amazing design. The plates above the mainspring, balance wheel, pallets and stem have been cut open so that most of the moving parts are on display. The back is an exhibition back, and the screws on the are anodized to be a blue color. The rotor also has a nice hole cut into it, so that you can see through the watch in many places. This is a beautiful watch to look at.

The band has solid links with a fold-over-pushbutton-safety clasp that works nicely. The movement hacks and hand-winds.

This is an inexpensive mechanical watch, so there are some issues with it that don't detract from the 5-star rating:
The seconds hand isn't a driven hand, meaning that it isn't in the middle of the gear train between the mainspring and the escapement. That means that it might be a little loose, and have a jerky movement when the seconds hand is falling. This is a SeaGull ST16 movement or clone, with all of the issues that come with it.
The other main issue is that the finish isn't great, but is definitely appropriate for the price this watch is selling for.
The lume on this watch is so ineffective that it might as well be white paint, which covers the hands and dots.

Neither a con nor a plus, this watch doesn't have any complications, so there is no date, 24 hour hand, day of week or other indicators, but skeleton watches with those features aren't nearly as beautiful as this watch.

Summary:
If you are looking for a beautiful skeleton watch to be a nice piece of jewelry at an inexpensive price, this is a very hard value to beat.

Really neat watch (the movements are cool to watch). The self-winding mechanism works well, and (if so needed) the manual wind works as well. A fully-wound watch will keep running for over 24 hours. The first one that I bought had a problem keeping correct time with the hour hand, but Amazon was very helpful and replaced the faulty watch with one that so far is working beautifully. Would purchase again!

Bought this for my Father-In-Law and he loves it. You can`t go wrong with Armitron and this skeleton watch is one of the nicest there are. Especially for the price.

Bought for grandson, don't get the wrong idea because he paid for it. Haven't heard any complaints so must be top-notch .

Originally found this at Walmart, but returned in and bought it on Amazon.com for about 50 dollars less. Love this watch..very heavy and solid. You have to wind it several times, and it seems best if you wish do it several times a day on the first day, then it keeps time as long as you wear it every day

it's a very nice elegant watch, I do like it, but as I write above, no adjustment links included. I bought this watch as a present for some one else, and now I have to be dealing with Armitron for an extra links. This service should provide solution, at least it's what I expect as a costumer.
