If you're cheap like me, this is the watch for you!
on November 12, 2014
I looked up the model number of this watch here on Amazon to try to find out what replacement battery the watch takes, because after 2+ years, mine died. I had to laugh when I got the search results page and started looking at the MQ-24's....I can't believe the face varieties! Descriptions tell what replacement battery it takes, but as far as I can tell, there's no way to open the case without demolishing the watch! :D
No matter...if it lasts 2 years, it's probably worth just getting another watch, at the current cost of batteries. I paid $6 for mine when I got it, and I have to say it was worth every penny! $3 per year ain't bad for a watch! It's gone up a little, but I'm ordering another one.
Being retired, I rarely wear a watch anyway, but it kept pretty accurate time when I needed one. Yes, it even LOOKS cheap too, with its rubber wrist band and obviously plastic case. And the plastic crystal scratches very easily. But who cares?! I have jarred, abused and mistreated this watch, and it kept on going.
This is definitely the one to get if you just want a CHEAP watch!
(For those who want to take this watch seriously: It is small...the plastic crystal is 1-1/16" in diameter; its weight is 6/10 oz. The maximum wrist diameter it will fit is 2-1/2", and the smallest is about 1-5/8". The thickness is just a hair over 1/4".)
