Quality watch without breaking the bank.
on January 7, 2017
This watch is beautiful, sleek, and timeless enough to be worn both casually and formally. This timepiece looks every bit as good in jeans and a hoodie as it does a button-up shirt, and the easy-to-change straps ensures that you can make it work for almost any sort of attire. Mine has the solid black nylon strap, but I'm excited to get different kinds for different clothing!
So, I want to address a criticism people have of this watch, and I want to address it pretty firmly since I now actually own the watch. There are people who claim this watch is so noisy it can be heard across the room. That is their actual statement. Across a room. There are others who say you might want to consider not wearing this watch because it may disturb the people around you. This is complete and utter nonsense. Complete nonsense. Now, does it make more noise than some watches? Most watches, even? Sure it does. Absolutely it does. You'll hear this watch if you hold it up to your face. But able to be heard from across a room? So loud it disturbs the people around you? Loud enough that it's going to break your concentration if you're sitting here? Please. Give me a break. That's hyperbole at best. This watch is not going to disturb you or anyone else unless you're wearing it as an earring. I have excellent hearing and I cannot hear it at all as I sit here in a VERY quiet room. This simply is not as loud as people claim it to be.
That said, I can't think of any real complaints. I thought for sure I'd be able to say "This watch isn't going to stand out much," but I've had two people at work point it out and ask where to get one. This is just one of those things in life that you buy and it does what it's supposed to do...and more. I'd have been happy paying what I did for this watch if it didn't light up at the push of a button. But it DOES light up (quite clearly, too.) I'd have been happy paying what I did for this watch if it didn't also have military time. But it DOES have military time. I'd have paid the price I did for this watch even if the bands weren't easily interchangeable...but they ARE. This is just a good buy for both watch collectors and people looking for a reliable, everyday watch. I'd recommend this for anyone, male or female.
