Love my Kenneth Cole....
on July 19, 2016
I purchased this to replace my orginal KC1514 from 2009 at was a gift and I received many compliments over the years. The Capacitor (inner spring) broke this past year along with the water resistant seals, so I feel that I got my money's worth out of the original watch. I did get an estimate to have the above items repaired which came in at about $100, the orginal watch had some scratches and markings, so I decided to replace the old one. The only difference between this watch and the production models to around 2012 is the dial...as another reviewer mentioned, this watch has a lighter black circular grooved display with chrome Roman numerals, the orginal looked a bit more classy as it was a matte black finish. I combed every watch retailer on the internet to find the identical model, which to the best of my knowledge is not available. In all fairness to Amazon, the photos representing this particular watch are accurate, I cannot say the same for other merchants.
My original Kenneth Cole worked fine until this year.
Some key points about this Automatic watch:
It can be wound manually by simply turning the crown counter clockwise, I mention this because it will wind itself somewhat through the course of an active day, however you may find it helps to just wind it about 10 - 15 times if necessary, but I would not recommend any further winding.
This watch always ran a bit fast, about a minute or so over the course of a month, that's very reasonable in my opinion for an automatic watch, and honestly this is not a super high end watch, yet I get dozens of compliments of those that think it is.
The watch appeared to be brand new without any signs of being refurbished as another reviewer pointed out.
This is truly a unique watch that is stylish and I've not found anything quite like this skeleton watch, especially at this price point. It originally sold for $165 at Macy's back in 2009, so picking it up for less than $100 is fantastic.
I only hope the longevity of this model will hold up as well as the original.
Overall I have had no issues other than the slight design change.
Bottom line...this a fantastic watch and makes for great conversation!!
