Pros:
the title says it all.
this one is the same watch as sku16037
with the obvious differences in appearance.
but the difference is really attractive.
it is huge.
i'll note the basics:
chrome plated brass case, w/ss screw on case back
w/rear window.
brown padded leather strap w/gator skin
pattern and ss buckle.
the white face with goldtone mechanicals
really pops and catches the eye.
it should be as accurate and as smooth as
the other watches in the "tachymetre" series.
very great looking watch,
it gets oohs and wows everytime someone sees it.
the price just make it that much more attractive.
Cons:
none at all.
although it is very prone to the rear glass breaking.
this one arrived intact with bubble wrap
around the important parts.
(by request)
Other:
very nice, exspensive looking.
do not tell any one what you paid for it.
no one will believe you.
DX is ahead of the coming trend of mechanical
automatic watches.
DX has had them for months now.
i have just came from the local "mart" store
where i saw a display featuring 10 or 15
new mech autos.
probably because of the huge
environmental awareness thats being pushed on us now.
they are labeling these as GREEN because
they don't run on batteries.
so there is new interest in old technology.
the prices on the "mart" store watches ranged
from $80 to $130.
they are also Chinese made.
i bought it because i think they are cool looking,
didn't realize i was being GREEN too!
Bottomline:
this series of watches is so attractive.
of coarse it's not going to have the accuracy of a quartz,
or the accuracy of a multi thousand dollar rolex.
but they do very well in accuracy.
the sku16037 i've has since late oct 08
is accurate to about 10 seconds a month now.
i wear it a lot.
it seems like the longer i wear it the better it runs.
get one or two if you like it.
they're worth it.
