A good watch with a few negatives.
on January 5, 2015
I've owned this Tommy Hilfiger watch for a month now and I can tell you that it's a good watch. It's not an outstanding watch by any measure, but it's a good one.
Firstly, I think the 42mm case width is an excellent size, fitting virtually any man. It's big enough to fit into the new "big watch" style currently in vogue yet not big enough to exclude smaller wristed men like myself. I think the case is very nicely polished on top surfaces while having a brushed finish on the sides. The white dial with the red-white-blue Tommy Hilfiger colors is very nice.
The watch movement itself was 15 seconds fast for the month - only average for a quartz watch. The Amazon page doesn't mention the place of manufacture for the movement so that probably means China. The faux, numbered diver bezel does not move and is obviously there purely for "decoration" and tends to detract from the watch in my opinion. The second hand is in a nicely contrasting red but does not hit the markers - not even close. I have more expensive watches that don't and cheaper watches that do but, as a watch buyer, I always look for it.
The 50 meter water resistance should be sufficient for this casual/dress watch if you get caught out in the rain or splash some water on it while doing dishes. I would not recommend immersing this watch - it's not a diver's watch. The band is certainly sufficient and is comfortable silicone with two keepers, but nothing special. I bought a Navy Blue/Red striped premium silicone band from Clockwork Synergy - 22mm Premium 2 Piece Ss Silicone Striped Navy Blue / Red Interchangeable Replacement Watch Band Strap which looks much nicer to my eyes.
It's a good and good-looking watch that has only a few things pulling it down to four stars like an average movement and some poor styling elements. But, it's a solid four star watch and I recommend it to Tommy Hilfiger fans.
