Product Description

While you would be hard pressed to find a Buffalo nickel in your pocket change nowadays, there is a history to this nickel. The Buffalo nickel took the United States from pre-World War I, through the Great Depression and to the beginning of World War II. Any coins found from circulation are rare, and because of design flaws, most are hard to date without out destroying the integrity of the coin. Before the Buffalo nickel there was Charles Barber's Liberty Head nickel, which had been in production since 1883. This coin had not been well received, but under the Coinage Act of 1890, a coin's design could not be changed until after it had been in circulation for at least 25 years, meaning the lackluster Liberty Head had to be used until 1909. In a May 1911 letter from his son to then Secretary of the Treasury, Franklin MacVeagh, it was advised that a new nickel could become "a permanent souvenir of the most attractive sort." MacVeagh didn't want to pass up the chance to change the coin. However, MacVeagh completely bypassed Barber, and started looking for a new design and designer. James Earle Fraser was chosen and work began. On March 4, 1913, coins from the first bag to be released into circulation were given to President William Howard Taft and a group of 33 Indian chiefs during the groundbreaking for the National Memorial to the North American Indian located in Fort Wadsworth, New York. Designed by artist James Earle Fraser, the Buffalo nickel features an Indian head profile on the obverse, or front, and the image of a buffalo on the reverse, or back of the coin. Instead of drawing from memory, Fraser used an assemblage of three chiefs, Iron Tail, Two Moons and Chief John Big Tree, who had previously posed for him. Similarly, the bison, Black Diamond, from Central Park Zoo was the model for the reverse. At the time, the words "In God We Trust" were not a requirement of nickels or pennies, and therefore are not seen on the buffalo nickel.

    I read a few reviews from people who said the watch looks great but the minute and hour hands stopped working or even fell off. I thought they were the exception and that i'd be fine. I bought the watch, it looked great and good price. However, less than 2 months after having it the minute and hour hands constantly malfunction. The watch will stop working and i'll have to reset it, or the watch will randomly be 2 and a half hours ahead of the time it should be for no reason. Very disappointing to not have a reliable watch.
    Steiner will fix your watch within a year, but you have to pay 10 dollars plus shipping to send it off to them. I don't have much confidence that they would be able to fix the watch completely given other reviews and my own personal experience. Quite a frustrating time piece because it looks dynamite, but doesn't work.

    Great idea to insert a historical coin into a watch dial, and I have to say the picture look awesome. Price is great too, although after seeing the watch I do wish they would charge a little more if it could bring some polish to the look. The strap is very cheap looking, but that can be easily remedied to by buying a leather replacement. The other improvement needed is the crystal, which feels and looks cheap plastic. Also, the hands don't contrast enough against the coin. I like the case, it does have an old-fasioned class to it.

    This is probably a 2-star watch, however I really like the patriotic feel imparted by the real coin and I am giving it 3 stars.

    This watch is very nice looking, with a nice band and face. For what I paid for it, it was a good deal. It would be an even better deal if the watch actually kept time. Fortunately, I no longer use my watches to tell time - I just need something on my wrist so it does not feel bare.

    Watch looked great except difficult to read dial because of watch shininess. Watch worked fine for 3 months. After 3 months, second hand would snag on minute hand and watch would halt.

    This watch came with the minute hand loose so that it would always point in the direction that gravity would pull it. There was no problem returning it though. It was delivered on a Wednesday. UPS picked it back up the next day and the replacement was delivered on Friday.

    This watch looks great indoors but the coin is too glossy to be in the sunlight. It would have been much better if the coin was distressed as it appears on the webpage.

    All in all I would say that I like this watch. It makes a good novelty for under $50, and Amazon stands behind it.

    I really hate to write a bad review on this watch, but unfortunately, all of these August Steiner coin watches have problems.

    They look unique and have a great appearance. That's where good ends and the problems begin. I've owned 2 penny watches because the first one broke, but even before that it had several issues with the hands getting stuck, the band broke all in less than a year. The Nickel Watch band broke also in less than a year. Then I accidentally dropped it and broke the Crystal, that part is my fault and expected with a drop. But the entire watch came apart. Any any decent watch, I'd have most likely just needed a new crystal. I've had both of the broken watches apart and they are extremely poorly and cheaply made. I've also noticed that Nickel was heavily polished to the point of severe loss of detail. I really like the idea behind these watches, I just wish the company would put more quality design, parts and manufacturing into these. I'd gladly pay more for a quality product. Unfortunately, I will not be buying any more watches from this company.

    The picture of the watch looked great, but when i received it , it did not look like the picture. It was very lite and the nickel looks so fake almost plastic like. Im very disappointed especially since it was supposed to be a b-day gift fo my boyfriend's, dads 60th and i paided to have it shipped in two days which cost more. This is a dont buy for me. What a wonderful 1st time buying experience on Amazon.
