It is the technology of my first watch, where I was told to wind it very carefully because if I wound it too far, it would break. And this one will too, as many here have posted. The 'crystal' is plastic and will scratch easily.
So I unpacked the watch which includes careful instructions on winding. I followed it carefully, winding very gingerly after 25. At about 28 I could feel greater resistance, and I stopped. This is a hunter case, which means there is a hinged cover over the face. It is a 'demi hunter' which means there is a window in the center of the cover that lets you see the time without opening the cover. The watch is partially skeletonized, which means you can see the some of the mechanical works. The black hands can be seen easily through the window. The cover is stamped with decorative design around the outer edge and large roman numerals to make it easier to note the time without opening the cover.The back is covered with a design similar to the front. The inside of the cover is marked with overlapping round swirls that is sometimes called 'machine turning'.The inside dial is white, with smaller roman numerals.
Accuracy? I compared this watch with a 130 year old Waltham that belonged to my grandfather, and a Chinese quartz hunter case Elgin given to me by my daughter when she graduated from college, 19 years ago. The Waltham usually lives in a glass dome on a book shelf and has been wound perhaps once every few years since my father gave it to me 40 years ago. When I first got it, a local watch technician cleaned and lubed it.Read more ›
I agree with everyone else in saying that the pictures do not do this watch justice, it's beautiful! The engravings are very intricate and it's not too girlie.
It's a real clockwork watch that you have to crank every so often which in my case was a big plus. The ticking isn't loud but you can hear it and see the gears move which is neat.
The chain is sturdy and the clasp at the end does it's job well.
The instructions for winding were a little confusing at first but we were able to figure it out after a few minutes of messing with it--i think we were both too excited haha
It's not too small and has some weight so it feels solid.
It also does a good job of being a watch. After we figured out how to set it, it kept time with both of our phones and my own watch perfectly! The next day it just got a little ahead but that might have been from the winding, i'm not sure.
Overall a very nice watch! It's classy and tells time well just what a pocket watch is supposed to do ^-^
I do recommend purchasing the leather pouch for this. It's very handy to snap it onto your belt and then pull the watch from it whenever you need it. Very retro and stylish.
I've used the watch for about two weeks and it keeps good time. I check it when I stick it in my pocket in the morning and so far I've only had to make one adjustment to the time (I set it back one minute this morning). If you need a watch to time the nano-decay rate of some carbon isotope then this is not the right timepiece for you; but for regular daily use it is more than accurate enough.
For the record, this watch is what is sometimes called a "sidewinder"; that is, the pendant (the "winding stem") is at the 3 o'clock position rather than the 12 o'clock position. This is normal for a hunter-style watch, but I have at least one hunter-style watch with the pendant at the 12 o'clock position (like open face watches). It doesn't make any difference in the mechanism but may mean something to you aesthetically.
At any rate, this is a great watch. I hope to get many years of daily use from it.
I read reviews and had high hopes, but when the item came, it was already broken. The winding post broke off, probably due to the TERRIBLE packaging - The watch was in a small ziplock bag in a giant box - 12x6x8in. with 1 piece of air pack. It did not come in the box shown or with any kind of instructions/documentation. All this could be attributed to someone in shipping having no clue what they are doing.
The quality of the product however is definitely the manufacturers problem. The "Crystal" is plastic and the numbers on the front cover are painted on poorly. There was black ink on places that weren't supposed to have it and no ink in the recesses where the paint should have been. I think that if Charles-Hubert tried a little harder they would have themselves a great product. For now though, I will buy the fiance something else and will avoid their brand in the future.
