Top quality, materials and price - this watch is a winner for men
on November 15, 2013
This Charles Hubert Paris pocket watch is a great product.
We ordered and received it in about a week. So far, seems as advertised. It came in a nicely packaged box and then inside a luxury watch box. The stainless steel finish on the watch was shiny and without scratches. The easy to read dial with numeric numbers versus roman numerals stood out nicely on the black background we selected. The pocket clip chain came separate, but looked nice and attached with ease. The unit was off on the exact time when we got it, but we re-set it and no issues since. It is heavy to the hand, but from a standpoint of quality not too heavy to handle.
Make sure you hold down the top bottom each time while opening and closing the watch face - DO NOT push down and quickly let it up as the opening and closing of the watch makes a loud/hard clicking sound. Doing this causes the watch to work harder to open/close and could break the mechanism over time. Instead, hold it down, keep it down and gently open and close the face each time and then let the button up, You'll have a more gentle clicking sounds as it opens & closes. This will give longevity. We read up on it so, we do it right this time.
My husband has gotten a good 1/2 dozen watches in the last decade and really wanted a new pocket watch. I thought here we go ahead - we'll spend $60 to 80 and the piece will go within a year and not look great to boot? We'll buy more and all the same. But, we looked hard for the right piece this time and believe with our research the Charles Hubert brand will hold up well. We spent the $110 to get a good piece that should last this time. My husband uses it everyday so far. I'll try to post a follow up comment in a year if all a go still.
For now, a really good buy. Five stars.
