Summary: Thought this was a good looking watch at a great price. It came in a very nice case, presented like a more high end watch. After taking it out of the box, the disappointments began. The strap was of poor quality, being rather uncomfortable on the wrist and then tearing after about a month in my rotation of watches (usually worn once a week...making it about 5 times). After the first month, the battery died.
Summary: I have a couple of this manufacturer's watches. I love them. But if you need a spare part (e.g. one of my watch bands broke) you will not get a response from their support. I just replaced the battery in one of them and it still doesn't work. At this point, I'm not even going to bother with contacting them because they don't respond to support issues anyway. Buy this only if you're ok with it probably being nonfunctional in a year or so.
Summary: I have purchased this watch over a month ago because I liked the look of it as well as the specs: Swiss quartz, sapphire glass, 660ft/200m water resistance, one-year warranty. Ever since I received it it stops working around midnight, and sometimes also during the day, most of the times when I take it off for a while. I have tried to contact Golana for help twice but have been completely ignored by their customer support so far.
Summary: Poor quality on the watch, the battery died on the second day, I recommend not buying this Apparently its a swiss made watch, personally, i strongly feel it doesn't live up to the SWISS MADE standards.
Summary: I bought this watch for my son. Delivery was prompt, external packaging excellent as usual with Amazon. However the internal display case was not pristine and I felt that possibly the watch was a return item although it clearly was brand new. This is a big,chunky heavy watch. I wear a Rolex Submariner and this is quite a bit bigger and heavier. My son was delighted with it but a problem developed with the leather strap, the loop snapped.
A great value watch which your friends will think cost loads

Summary: I own many watches, and I feel Golana offer a superior build quality and finish to anything else at this price point. The looks are a little bit like IWC, and maybe a little of the imposing case size of Panerai, however the overall style is functional as opposed to flashy. Highly recommended.

Summary: arrived really quickly. looks good quality, well made though probably a bit big for me. just check size carefully befofe you order. its something different from the normal makes you see. easy to operate, set and see in the dark. dont actually use it for diving but when i'm lobster/crab fishing so its dunked in the irish sea and the odd bash against the boat or on the pots and it stands up well.
Summary: Produit de mauvaise qualité, après quelques jours d'utilisation la boucle de fermeture du bracelet s'est désolidarisée. Deux jours après c'est incident et alors que je n'utilisez plus la montre c'est arrêtée de fonctionner!
