I bought this watch for my wife for Christmas 2011 because she really wanted it. After receiving the watch, it had an issue where the hands would not pass properly over each other. The battery is still good, as the hands are still trying to move, but are unable to. We returned it, and got another one, however it did the same thing a few months later. If you are looking for a watch with a silicone rubber strap, choose something else. Unfortunately, I am just outside the return window, so we're stuck with a overpriced bracelet. Hope no one asks her the time!!!
