James Dean would wear this watch
9 September 2011
Summary: Got this as a gift. I receive compliments daily on it. I really like the look, and it's overshadowed all of the annoying features about this watch. It's basically the epitome of form over function. Even with its quirks, I still wore it pretty much every day. However, the battery just died after just 9 mos, which has caused me to reflect on all the problems with the watch: PRO: 1. Looks slick 2. Seriously, people ask me the brand all the time so they can buy one. CON: 1.
Summary: After having used this watch for some month now I tend to find it a still better buy. It runs smoothly (crashes a few times like all digital items), and the form and design attract me more and more. The Bang & Olufsen of watches more or less. Recommended!
Summary: Before buying this product please read and take note of my bad experience with this watch. First of all, this is a very unique, stylish, and useful watch that I did love for the time I wore it. Unfortunately I had to go through two of them in only 3 months. The first one I ordered shut off randomly on the first day I received it and no support or troubleshooting could reset the system. So after returning that defective one I got my second watch and was very pleased..
Summary: It is a beautiful watch, it is better looking in person than on the site. It is also very easy to use and view. You can change or set something literally at the click of a button. The only drawback is the timezones are only in 1 hour increments and I am in Afghanistan which is at a 30 min increment. I have it currently set for Dubai and NYC and NYC is 30 min off because the watch does not allow you to configure.
Summary: Very cool watch, attractive, but the design makes it wearable only for people with large wrists. The watch and band are directly integrated together without a flexible joint, so the polyurethane band does not flex for the first half inch on either side of the watch. It would only be comfortable for someone with a 3 inch wide wrist or wider. Had to return it as unwearable.
Summary: I bought this world time watch to replace my Nixon "The Connect" World Time watch. Upon receiving the watch, I was impressed by the packaging - very nice box, and when I opened it, I was excited how the watch appeared. Sculptural, curved to fit your wrist, and really cool looking. Ok, aesthetics down, I wanted to see if functionality met my needs. I pulled out the instructions which are laughably terrible...
