If this thing had come with a regular leather band, I would have been fine with it. Now it doesn't want to stay clasped and tight, so I've given up and put in on the shelf.
After only several months of light to medium wear, the metal mesh wristband did start to fray. It started to poke me in my wrist and get caught in my clothing, tearing some of the fabric on occasion. I have since not worn the watch, although the condition of the mesh band is a reflection of user wear, not necessarily due to poor quality.
I also had difficulty adjusting the clasp to properly fit the band onto my wrist. I imagine this is due to the clasp being on a metal mesh band.
For those seeking a how-to tutorial on adjusting the clasp, youtube 'Adjusting clasp on metal mesh watch band' [...]
Fitting it to my wrist was a whole different matter. My wrist is apparently smaller than what manufacturers expect, and I almost always have to shorten the band or move the clasp. Moving the clasp to make the watch fit more tightly was difficult enough (no hint of how to do this in the "instructions"), but even after figuring out how the clasp should work, it seemed next to impossible to close without breaking the watch. I called the 800 number on the watch's box and inquired how to move the clasp. The lady said she would email the next day a diagram of how to move the clasp.
Meanwhile, I consulted a local jeweler. He thought it'd work exactly as I thought it would (and, as it turns out, exactly as the emailed diagram would show the next day). But we still couldn't close the clasp. He was afraid he'd break the watch if he applied any more pressure, and I fretted at home over the same thing for the next two hours, becoming more frenzied and frustrated by the minute. Then I headed for my tool drawer for a large hammer to achieve some satisfaction at least, but opted instead to try using pliers. I was determined to close that clasp, even if it ruined the watch. When I boldly pressed the pliers around the clasp, it snapped gratifyingly into place, a motion that could not be completed by pushing with fingers alone, as both the jeweler and I had repeatedly tried earlier. Once I knew this, I was able to open the clasp and adjust the length of the band easily and satisfactorily.Read more ›
The watch would be great if the band didn't develop shards of snag points. The band has ruined many sleeves and got blood out of my wrist more than a regular physician has done in a year! I am stuck with a useless product unless the seller reaches out to either send me a new mesh band or replacement watch. Amazon is not providing me a means to contact the seller to rectify this situation therefore it leaves me to posting this here.
The watch itself is a lot thinner than I thought it would be, but my judgement is a bit skewed from having worn a big clunky Invicta chronograph watch over the past 3 years. The slimmer and lighter profile of this new watch is a big difference from what I'm used to, not that it's a bad thing.
As for people saying the watch is hard to resize, I figured out how to do it by hand with no tools at all. The trick is to slightly pinch the sides of the piece on the mesh strap and pull hard in the direction you want to move it. There are little tracks in the band, and you'll feel it snap each time the piece slides and comes to a rest in each track. I took mine in 4 slides smaller in less than a minutes.
I've not seen any flaking, but I've not worn it very long either. For the price I paid, even if it did flake, I'm still not going to be too unhappy.
I'm giving the watch 4 stars for now, and will up it to 5 stars in a few months, if it holds up.
