Nice Looking but Not Great on Durability - Good Price - Still Recommended

VESTEL MEN'S DIGICHORD DIG009 Black White WATCH REVIEW
Features: 1 star * - (minimal features)
Quality & Durability: 2 stars ** - (mediocre/fragile)
Value for Money: 3 stars *** - (reasonable)
Price: 4 stars **** - (good price @ $42.00 paid)
Appearance: 5 stars ***** - (excellent appearance also nicely boxed with display stand.)
OVERALL RATING: 3 stars ***
This watch comes in a fairly decent & nice looking dark blue box with well made pull out adjustable display stand. Each watch also comes with a useful guitar pick with Vestel Logo, which is a nice unexpected touch.
This is a very nice looking inexpensive fashion watch, both on and off the arm. (best suited for people with slightly beefy wrists IMHO) ..... *The strap is not all that long so if you have extra wide wrists, it could be a tight fit.
The watch has a SURPRISINGLY THIN PROFILE and is also VERY LIGHT WEIGHT, making it a real pleasure to wear. (Best Uses: Casual & Smart/Casual.)
If you are looking for a watch that has many features with all the "bells & whistles", .... you best look elsewhere!
THIS IS A VERY BASIC DIGITAL WATCH with TIME & DATE ONLY with a nice unusual Aqua Colored BACKLIT DIGITAL NUMERALS - THAT'S IT!
The Face and Outer Case of the watch is PLASTIC which certainly helps in keeping the watch very light and also very thin in profile, HOWEVER it can VERY EASILY be SCRATCHED and MARKED. The Band is made from a nice comfortable and decent looking polyurethane type material which looks and feels well made and well designed.
The back of the watch is made from stainless steel with an interesting design. Unfortunately the plastic casing makes the watch look somewhat inexpensive (which it admittedly is), yet it's STILL a very NICE LOOKING WATCH and one that can be worn proudly.
There are 2 buttons in front for TIME SETTING and DATE and 2 buttons on opposite side for illuminating the the digits in a beautiful Aqua Blue color. (one button would have made more sense IMHO)
Although the watch is rated to be waterproof, I would definitely NOT want to put it to the test, that's for sure! At best I would rate this watch as SPLASH PROOF Only .... and would NOT RECOMMENDED the watch be submersed in any depth of water, regardless what they may rate it as. (JMHO)
If your expectations are not too high, you should be very satisfied with this watch. You can't go wrong for the price!
In a Nutshell: SHARP LOOKING Fashion watch however NOT GREAT ON DURABILITY! - WATER RESISTANCE VERY QUESTIONABLE - WELL DESIGNED STRAP - GOOD PRICE - Best Feature: It's VERY SLIM PROFILE - RECOMMENDED.
