Showing 1-7 of 7
A new Skeleton in my closet????
29 October 2011
Summary: Judging by the experiences of several other reviewers, this watch has some unacceptable issues, which one does not expect for a relatively expensive brand. However, I have not found this to be the case with my watch so far, nor do I think it is cheaply made (I purchased the one with the black band and silver case).
Summary: This was a gift. The recipient says it's a beautiful watch, but that you need to have another watch on your other wrist if you want to know what time it is. It's functionally junk. The company does not answer their phone or email and their voicemail box is "unavailable". Amazon has a great return policy, unfortunately I bought this watch more than a month before it was gifted, so it went past the Amazon return cutoff. I won't make that mistake again.
Summary: The watch is stylish and fun but the build is clearly cheap. Somehow the Akribos name suggested a quality product. Don't be fooled by the MSRP the build of the timepiece is worse than a fossil. A month after purchasing it I accidentally pulled out the pin and had to fix it by primitively banging it against my desk. Not the proudest of this purchase.
Summary: Can you imagine this? This watch runs 5-6 minutes faster per hour, 2 hours a day! Its movement works poorly. If you just want a watch with a beautiful appearance but poor performance, go for this one.
Summary: I ordered this watch not knowing what to expect since it's my first with Akribos XXIV. This is a very classy watch, sits well on the wrist and catches attention easily. The pictures doesn't do justice to its look... Though not crazy about the strap's material but still classy. I will recommend this for anyone who is a watch freak like me and enjoys good comments!
Summary: The watch is very nice looking. It really turns heads. It suites best with a suit or a classy shirt. The only problem I found is his movement. It's automatic self-wind so... I couldn't leave it for 2 days off my hand.... or it gets behind. I guess the mechanic spring must be loaded for it to work perfectly. I'll give it 5 stars because if you wear it it runs smoothly.
