Perfect for petite-sized wrists!
on May 28, 2014
I loved the idea of a solar powered watch. I'm happy it's eco-friendly, but primarily I don't want to have to replace the battery - just another thing to add to my to do list. So I "charged" it the first day according to the directions, which meant spending most of the day outside in bright sunlight. The watch also charges in artificial light as well. So far, so good the watch has kept perfect time. I was also searching for a watch with a leather wristband. Many of the metal wristbands look awkward when I have to get a majority of the links removed. My wrist is very small and this watch fits perfectly! I was pleased to find out that the hour and minute hand glow in the dark. The only problem I had was setting the date. It took me two days to figure it out because the day kept jumping ahead. Fortunately, I realized that the booklet the watch comes with has detailed directions on setting the date. Additionally, this watch does have a second hand, which is very convenient. My only issue is the wear already showing up on the leather band. I wear it almost every day so hopefully this is just the initial wear I'm noticing from breaking the leather band in. I highly recommend this watch: it's reliable, stylish (the two-tone matches everything), and if you're looking for a gift for someone the packaging is quite nice.
