Watch is beautiful but runs slow and band started falling apart almost immediately
on May 1, 2015
I've had this watch since Christmas 2013. As a timepiece, it is beautiful and feels solid. I wear it very often and I've only managed to get one scratch on it but I am sure with some effort I could figure out a way to buff that out. Have never had any problems with loose internal pieces or any water or fogging. So we're still at 5 stars.
First problem though, it runs slow. I have to move it forward a minute or two every few days to keep it in synch. Other than that the self winding feature works as it is supposed to. Of course, a watch is supposed to be accurate so we lose a star there.
What about the band? The first band lost stitching on one of the loops within the first two months. Then the next loop did the same. I wore it like that for another few months and some cracks started appearing on the underside of the band. That's when I decided to swap to my other band. That one started cracking within about 4 months. Me being me, and because it was on the backside of the strap, I continued to wear it. Well, it's gotten to the point where it has so many cracks that I'm afraid it's going to fall off and so I now have a watch and no band. There goes the other star and I'm checking out Amazon for a decent, but affordable, band.
