Pretty nice for a ~$65 watch

Shawn Elliott, amazon.com
24 January 2012
  • Summary: I've seen several people here complain about their watches not keeping proper time. Hey guys: MECHANICAL WATCHES ARE ADJUSTABLE! If your watch consistently runs fast or slow (not counting the normal inaccuracy as the weather changes and the parts change size), then take it to a jeweler and ask them to adjust the escapement. There are two adjustments that can be made, one to re-center the rotating pendulum and one to lengthen or shorten the spring that makes it oscillate.

Solid product altogether

Justin, amazon.com

  • Summary: A little smaller than i expected, but a great value for $65.00 or so. The packaging was fine, there were no problems with it whatsoever. You should wind it every day, and its fun to watch the gears inside move. It looks like its worth a lot more than it is, and you should buy it.

Nice watch

adam somerfield, amazon.com

  • Summary: It's a fun little watch, and it's held up so far. It keeps pretty accurate time, but mine looses a minute every couple days - not a problem though, just what you'd expect from any mechanical watch. My only real qualm is that the stem sometimes pops up and changes the time when I put it in my pocket. Although it's easy to tell when this has happened, you still don't know what the real time is. It doesn't happen that often, though, and otherwise it's a good watch.

More Than Expected

Kin-of-Hannah, amazon.com

  • Summary: This product was purchased for my father, who celebrated his 83rd birthday. He has my grandfather's Elgin, but it just resides in a display. Since he is not warm about products from China or France, I have to check gift items closely. With no markings on the watch or packaging, I felt I was in the clear. Once he had open the gift and wound the watch, I was relieved. The movement was so smooth you would think it was Swiss.

  • Summary: I bought this beautiful watch for my SO and he loves it. So far it has been right on time all day long. He receives multiple compliments on it whenever he wears it and we love watching the mechanics do their thing on the inside. I have no regrets on this purchase.

Really Nice Pocket Watch

Eric C., Amazon
8 January 2013
  • Summary: If you're a pocket watch fan, you will love this piece. It just looks like it's expensive! The details are very nice, the movement is smooth and it gets lots of compliments. I love to look at the time but sometimes end up taking more time just to watch the inner mechanisms do its thing.
