Top critical review
It's a watch, an $8 watch, that's about it!
on November 24, 2013
I got this watch for a cheap but shiny throw on accessory for dressing up. First thing I noticed is compared to the other watches I purchased this one is much smaller in size, so just be aware of that. I didn't see any measurements, and a review said it was a big watch.. it is NOT that big.
When I looked closer I then realized a couple of the "crystals" had fallen off in the bag. I'll probably try to glue them back in. When I tried it on a couple other things I noticed: Links are poorly assembled, so there will be much arm hair pulling if you have said arm hair! Secondly, there is no release button, so it's pretty tricky to get it off of my wrist, I had to slide my finger in between the band and my wrist to separate the clip.
Lastly, it's pretty obviously this is a "faux" watch, and with the price it shouldn't be much of a surprise, so everything except the seconds, minutes, hours, and the dial are fake. Also, it ticks pretty loud and I had to store it in box so it did not bother me when I'm trying to get to sleep.
With all that said, it is only $7-8 and offerred on prime, so I'm not extremely upset with my purchase. If I can handle loosing some arm hairs I'll probably wear it a few times if I can glue the crystals in.
The face itself looks fairly clean, and it has held the exact time for over a week now, so it definitely works.
I'd say if you just want a cheap throw on for only $8 I would say go ahead, but just know you get what you pay for!
