When I first opened the box I saw that the leather box in which the watch came in, was scratched. I thought nothing of it, I figured, "it's just a case." However, this was the first sign of a cheap product. The very first time I used it, let me repeat, the FIRST TIME I used it, it ripped. The leather strap got a small rip in it as soon as I tightened it. There are black markings along the gold plate. The wist strap feels like cardboard and it all looks flimsy. But hey, it was only 20 bucks. I suggest going to JC Penny and getting a nice watch for $30-$40 if you want one for every day use. This one will not last long. But if you just plan on wearing it one time for one outfit, then by all means, I recommend it. But definitely not an every day watch and I would not recommend that you give this to someone as a gift.
