Lovely xmas gift!!
16 January 2012
Summary: This watch is beautiful, I purchased it as a christmas present for my boyfriend and he loves it!! He has worn it everyday since he got it. lol. He gets alot of compliments about it and everyone wants to know where he bought it. I would definately recommend this watch to any man, its affordable and has a really sophisticated and stylish look, you can wear it to work or when stepping out for a date. Either way its a great buy!
Summary: Bought this item thinking it looked like a nice watch. It arrived very quickly and certainly does look nice. The numbers are simply too dim to read easily unless you turn it just the right way and there is a lot of light. I can't understand how some people said they can read it just fine in dim light. I did see a review that said he replaced the battery and that fixed it. I replaced the battery and it did not get better at all.
Summary: Great watch, I'd definitely buy it again. I've had this watch for a few months now, and the only downside, as people have mentioned, is the lack of a back light. The time is pretty difficult to see when it's dark outside, but you can usually get away with tilting your wrist in weird directions to see some kind of contrast. I've gotten many compliments on the watch regarding how stylish and 'interesting' it looks.
Summary: Love the size of this watch. It's thin so it fits easily under my dress shirt sleeve. I get LOTS of compliments on the design. But button to see the date is a little hard to press, because it's even with the side of the watch.. but I have a calendar on my desk and phone. :-) I'd buy this watch again if I needed to.
Summary: I saw this watch at Kenneth Cole's website and then ordered it from amazon. I get more compliments on it from coworkers, customers and generally anyone I interact with. Ther reviews point out it's missing a backlight but I dont find tha to be a problem at all. The screen does well if you are a little clumsy, as I am, and occasionally drag it on a wall. Like my other KC watches, I anticipate this one to last for years.
Summary: I have had this watch since 2007 and I still love it. I've had to replace its battery twice over the years but it's still kicking! People have asked me about this with a lot of interest. Its unique square-shaped design is hard to find. The build quality is so great that after all these years, it still looks pretty good.
Summary: My dads had nothing but problems with this watch. I bought it for him bcuz I love the way it looks. Its very modern, and I love the big print. Anyhow, so this watch will not have the right times on it when my dad looked at it occasionally, so that it makes it not dependable. Finally after a year of going through this, I took it to the watch repair shop for him for a new battery and they said that the reason why it would stop working, is because if you press the back...
Great look, but no warranty -- which it unfortunately needed. Twice.

Summary: This is a nice-looking watch with an interesting visual design. However, having owned two of these watches and seen them both die the same way, I should mention this product's two major design flaws. The first is obvious -- no illumination function. Why KC wasn't able to include a feature found in almost every electronic watch since the early 80's, I'm not sure.
Summary: This is the second watch in this style that I have purchased. I wanted a second one so I could have it when the first becomes old and worn looking. I really like the thin and unobtrusive face of this watch, I also like digital. After searching through thousands of Grandfather Clock sized wrist watches, which is the current trend, I found this very nice slick looking watch.
