Summary: Updated 1/15/2012: The analog portion of the watch broke after 1 week of extremely light use. The analog hands no longer move or hold time. Orignal review 1/8/2012: It's stylish and a perfect size for medium sized wrists. The analog portion of the watch is easy to read, even in low light. It does not have a second hand, which means there is no annoying ticking. As one other reviewer noted, the digital portion of the watch is very hard to read in low light.
Summary: I prefer analog watches to digital and this watch gives both. Dial is easy to read. I believe it is a great watch for the price. The analog time is simpler to set than any other combination watch I have ever owned.
Summary: Nice watch, looks good. I didn't care for the strap so replaced it with a black velcro band. My only complaint is that the very tiny P for PM and the tiny bell for Chime are very difficult to see on the display, even in good light because they are so tiny. The PM issue is easily resolved by putting the dual time in 24 hour mode (military), so you don't need to see the P when setting the alarm.
Summary: This watch which looks formal, so it is wearable for work. It is also wearable for casual outings. Its digital display gives me date display which is must for me in a watch. It does not make loud tick-tick sound every second as it does not have a second-hand (unlike the Timex watches). This watch has everything in my checklist except a light. But I can live with it as the golden hands against the black dial make it very easy to read most of the times.
Summary: I bought the watch for knocking around on the weekends. The watch has accurate time and the set up time for both the analog and digit time clocks was not hard to do. I found the watch band which is plastic to be comfortable and goes on and off as easy as a better leather band.
Summary: I like this watch, but it deffinately has its fualts. For instance it is nearly impossible to read or see at night. Other than that this makes for a great watch, not so much for an adult but maybe more of a kid or teenager kind of a watch. It is alittle bit more plasticy than it looks but other than that i enjoy it.
Summary: Great watch for $15 and change. The gold numbers on black background are easy to see. The date and day function is nice and easy to read. The watch is lite enough and small enough in diameter that it doesn't hinder your wrist movement while working or typing. Just a real nice casual watch.
If you need dual time zones and an alarm, buy this watch

Summary: This is a neat, lightweight watch with multiple functions. Most dual time-zone watches are bulky and somewhat clumsy. This one is very neat. The second time zone can be seen in the window along the bottom of the watch. At the push of a button, that window can be switched to show the alarm setting, a stopwatch, or a "time elapsed" function for longer periods than the stopwatch covers. All this in a very unfussy, compact case.
