First, when I read comments on other watches I realize how often the term "automatic" is misunderstood. So let's get that straight real quick. This is an automatic mechanical watch. No batteries required -- the watch can either be wound manually, or thanks to the weighted wheel in the back it will wind itself as you move your wrist around doing... well, whatever it is that you do. That means that if you don't wear it for a day or so, it will stop and you'll have to wind it and set the time again. "Automatic" merely refers to the self-winding capability.
This watch is beautiful. Eye of the beholder and whatever but it's truly something special. The incredibly complex inner workings are partially visible through the skeleton faceplate, and I catch myself watching the spinny bits sometimes rather than reading the time. Additional components including the weight for the self-winding mechanism are visible through another opening on the back side of the watch. Any way you look at it, this watch exudes quality. The case is just... impossibly polished. You don't even want to touch it, it's so perfect. The leather bands (you get two of them, black and brown) are comfortable and attractive, glossy on the outside surface and natural on the inside with the company name branded there. It's definitely solid, thicker than other watches I've owned.Read more ›
The watch has a very thick stainless steel case--about as thick as my HTC Incredible 4G mobile phone. It is heavy, but not enough to be cumbersome, even on my skinny little wrist. It is a mechanical watch, so of course, it requires no battery; in the short amount of time that I've had it, it has kept very good time (better than my 8-year-old Raymond Weil mechanical). It comes with two watch bands--a black that comes installed, and an extra tan one. Both are leather, and while they seem a little plasticky at first, the pre-installed one loosened up pretty quickly.
As you can probably see from the product info, it has a see-the-guts-of-it "skeleton" design that I find attractive, mainly because I like things that work. However, a black ring around the inside edge appears to be made of plastic, which seems like a cheap shortcut even on a watch of this price.
But the only thing that really bothers me about this watch is that I can't see the hands! Granted, I started needing reading glasses a couple of years ago (I'm 48), but the hands are thin and black, and they just don't stand out enough on the dark skeleton face background. I tried looking down to read the time while driving, and I just couldn't tell the time safely. None of my other watches presents the same challenge.
In short, it's a nice watch, and a good value for the modest price, but if you like the look, you might check to see if you can get someone to daub some glow-in-the-dark on the hands for you.
As other reviewers have mentioned the hands are way too small for this watch. They get lost in the skeletal cutout and gears. In low light they are impossible to see. I don't understand why the hands are not bigger for this type of watch. Thicker hands would have complimented this watch and actually make it functional. This was the main design flaw in the watch.
The second flaw is that it is terrible in keeping time. It ran extremely fast and would be out of sync in a day or two. I was constantly setting the hands. A couple of times a week can start getting annoying. When I bought this watch I did not read any reviews about the watch not keeping time, so maybe the watch I received was defective.
The last thing was the black band broke a couple of months ago. It did not last a year, which is a pretty short life span for a watch band. Again, maybe I just received a faulty unit. It does come with a second watch band in brown, but I don't wear anything that would complement the band.
So for the past few months the watch has been gracing my nightstand. I could buy another band, but with the other flaws I am not sure if it is worth the effort.Read more ›
