Can't argue with this – Stainless Steel Band Self-Winding Mechanical Wrist Watch Reviews

posted by elporko on 03/18/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Very stylish second hand movement is smooth (though not entirely so) No need for batteries Looks much more expensive than it is
Cons:
No battery- means that you have to wear it or wind it, or it will stop. Not much of a pain though since it doesn't take long to set Glow in the dark tips of watch hands are barely visible even in pitch black Watch band is rather thin/cheap (which is the only thing keeping the watch from looking even nicer)
Other:
Bottomline:
This is probably middle of the road for 20 dollar watches you can get online. While the face is quite attractive and nicely contrasted, the band looks/feels fairly cheap. So, only get it is it's up your alley stylewise (which it very much is for me), if not, it's pretty much equal with most mechanical watches at this pricepoint.
