Very poor design – Leather Band Self-Winding Mechanical Wrist Watch Reviews

posted by esteve on 02/03/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It's very cheap and feels sturdy. Looks nice (a bit flashy, perhaps). Less than a minute retard in two days.
Cons:
The design is very poor. Has a fake speedometer (the outer black ring) and two fake small spheres (the chronometer and another one with no discernible utility) Most of the sphere is transparent letting you see the inner wheels and springs. Unfortunately, the hands are very thin and the same color than the machinery, sou it is impossible to know the time at a first, quick glance. Depending the time, I have to put the watch a feet from my face and look at it for half a minute.
Other:
The same watch without the speedometer and with a plain sphere with visible hands would have been much better for me.
Bottomline:
Buy it if you have a very good sight or if you don't mind what hour is it.
