The inside of the cover is like brushed steel, with circle patterns and the face looked nice and simple, with a second hand. The numbers were easy to read and included military time in smaller red font beneath it, as well as minute conversion in small black just above them. It made it easy to tell the time at a glance.
My only qualm is the chain isn't a little bit longer and doesn't have a replaceable clip at the end.
When you pop out to set the time, the minute hand flops around a teenie bit so when you set the time you have to be careful how you click the set knob back in or it can move the minute hand a little. Not very accurate and really annoying to me.
However, yes, it's fine for the price I guess but I'm now looking for another pocket watch. It's not worth it for me to send it back so I'm donating it to a thrift store and spending more money this time for something with a bit more quality.
It will keep time fine for a few days, then will go bad, I'll reset it, it will keep good time again for a few days, then it will go bad again. Can't find any rhyme or reason.
Replaced the battery, but that didn't solve the problem.
EDIT: finally got frustrated, bought another one. It soon started doing the same thing.
A watch should do one thing: keep accurate time. This one doesn't. If you need a shiny $20 paperweight that will sometimes tell the correct time, buy it. If not, forget it.
Sometimes the cheap turns out expensive.
If I could drop my review down to one star, I would.
It most certainly did. It's practical for me because I'm forever doing things with my hands that kill wrist watches, but the pocket watch is out of the way, safe in its namesake. Furthermore, nobody expects to see pocket watches anymore as cell phones are quickly putting even wrist watches out of style. It's fun to see the looks I get when somebody asks for the time.
This design is basic with no bells or whistes. Time and date aren't automatically set or reset at Daylight Savings Time and there's no satelite in the sky telling my little watch I've strayed to far into another time zone, it doesn't even tell me whether it's morning or night but for me that works. It is perfect for first time Pocket-watch owners who want to see if the idea will work for them without forking out a lot of cash or worrying if it'll get scratched up.
I've enjoyed owning this watch for practical, aesthetic, and entertaining purposes. In fact, this simple little number has made me quite enamored with pocket watches in general. When the current battery runs down I intend to try and get it replaced. If I cannot I plan to simply purchase an identical watch to act as the functional staple in my new collection.
(by the way; I've tried but it doesn't seem to work too good for hypnotizing people into giving you cash. Sorry folks!)

I have to give this watch a "don't buy rating". If a watch doesn't keep accurate time its not worth any price unless you need a prop in a play. Read morePublished on July 4, 2009 by john strait
