Nice looking watch

Summary: The best thing about this watch is the aesthetics. It is simply beautiful to look at, and top marks on that. Now on what a watch is meant to do, I give it two stars. The reason for this is that first, I had to return the watch twice. Secondly, the replacement watch, which is the third one, has suddenly stopped working. As most people will imagine, I am not impressed. There appears to be a fundamental flaw in the watche's mechanism which has not been addressed.
Summary: I am a woman with an average sized wrist (neither birdlike nor chunky) and have been looking for a man's watch for myself for months now. I purchased the Obaku gents silver dial brown leather strap watch and I absolutely LOVE it. It looks great on my partner too - totally recommend either for men or for women who like a chunkier watch.
Summary: Very smart, very slim watch on a plain brown leather strap with a buckle. The watch case is a matt finish, as is the buckle, so looks quite restrained on the wrist rather than leaping out at you by being big and shiny. The date window is tiny, and I definitely need my glasses to read it, but it adds to the balance of the face.
Summary: The watch strap detached from the face after being worn about only a few times. Rather than being attached around a spindle, the leather strap is held in place by two small screws. This clearly makes it very weak at this point. Very disappointing design flaw. Amazon excellent on providing speedy refund.
Summary: Would have preferred a watch with Roman numerals but this one meets my needs in all other respects - good value, slim and elegant. Nice quality leather strap too, if a bit long for my wrist so I had to cut to length. The date window is so tiny as to be useless but that's not important to me.
Summary: Ich gebe zu, die Uhrenmarke Obaku hat mir gar nichts gesagt. Mag sein, dass ich Banause bin, aber ich bin mit Marken wie Seiko, Citizen, Timex, Swatch, Skagen usw. "großgeworden". Bei Amazon habe ich dann diese insgesamt ansprechende Uhrenserie entdeckt und just diese cremefarbene Herrenuhr zur Probe bestellt. Sie ist von der Optik und Haptik fantastisch. Das Armband ist aber brauner, als nach der Abbildung zu vermuten!
