Really nice smaller watch

Summary: My husband does not have big arms or hands and we have been looking for a smaller dress watch for awhile. Since most mens' watches today are enormous, heavy, too thick, very much in the way, it has not been easy to find a watch that was the right size and had a brown leather band and had the look he wanted -- but this one has it all. The downside, if this matters to you, is that the calendar is that little dot right above the 6 and it is small, can be hard to read.
Summary: I'll give this watch 5 stars in the category of attractive quartz watches. It doesn't look like a cheap department store watch on the wrist. As someone else pointed out it's really a Cartier Tank clone in some ways. But the fact that it's a borrowed design doesn't detract from its classic appeal. I really like its size. It resembles an art deco timepiece from the 30s or 40s, but it's a tad bigger than most watches from that era.
Summary: I'd recommend this watch to anyone who wants to add some class to their wordrobe. It reminds me so much of a watch my grandfather wore. The smaller case size and roman numerals give this watch a very timeless, classic look. Yet, the "three-prong" lug keepers for the strap make this watch unique and keeps it from being just another Cartier Tank rip-off. I only have two small criticisms. First, it takes a while to set the date when you first get it.
Summary: This is a beautiful watch. It is small, unlike the popular "wrist anchors" worn by many guys today. I like simple elegance, and this watch delivers. This watch look very nice with a suit or business casual. It is a versitle watch. The band is mock alligator and is also nice looking. I saw this watch in a mall store for $165.00, so it is definitely priced right and is a good quality timepiece.
Summary: I bought this for my husband. He loves it. It is a very beautiful watch. The color of the face is great and the band is better that it looks. I had looked at many sites for this watch and this was the best price for the exact same watch. He was happy and so was I. I would recommed this watch to any man for any occassion.
Summary: This is a classic look watch, not heavy or big, reminiscent of the wind-up Elgin my father wore in the 40's-60's (battery operated now). Very attractive and comfortable, and fits close to the wrist (not thick). It is a man's size from about 10 years ago, so do not expect it to be large (study the photo's of the item for size). I am 62, not ready for the huge watches, the weight, the thickness that has got to find things to hit, or the prices for them.
