Excelent wrist watch for the price. – Fashion Auto Mechanical Steel Wrist Watch with Date Display Reviews

Pros:
Excellent price for a good automatic mechanical watch. The build quality is ok, not the best. But I don't think anyone was waiting for a Patek Philippe for this price range. It came in a little box that seems to be pretty protective. It's stays running for more then half a day (around 16 hours) without the need of moving it to give it some energy. The winding mechanism is quiet.
Cons:
Pointers are only visible at night/low light if you get a strong light really close to the dial and keep it there for some time. And Even by doing this it doesn't stay bright for much longer then 30 seconds. The finish on the crown isn't that good, so it's a bit rough to the touch, almost "sharp".
Other:
I really like it. As I said. For the price this is an excellent wrist watch. Feels great, isn't gigantic nor small. If you have a small/thin arm, keep in mind that the band comes adjusted for a really big arm. It's easy to re-adjust it though. The rotation of the bezel mimic the rotation you have on diving wrist watches (it rotates counter-clock wise only and have the 10 to 20 minutes mark to use with the scuba), but the clock isn't even water proof. Diving with it would ruin it.
Bottomline:
It's a nice watch, looks and feels like it was much more expensive, all the mechanisms works and it's acceptable in precision (1 to 2 late minutes in a week). Good one. Buy it!
