Summary: Great watch, amazing price, I picked it up for 55$ mid december and could not be happier with the quality. Easy to read, minutes on the outer loop, hours inner. Mine gains approximately 1.75 seconds per day, which is pretty good compared to other mechanical watches. The second hand cannot be adjusted by turning the crown, only the minutes and hours, so setting the second hand is not easy, or straightforward at all.
Summary: I got this watch for half what they are asking for it now, but would have still ordered it at the current price. It looks much better in person, than on the picture. I've changed the strap to a nice waterproof brown leather strap, but the strap that was on it is nice looking. I live in a very wet enviroment, so a canvas strap just wasn't a good idea for me. The face of the watch looks very modern, and masculine. It has kept good time so far.
Summary: Great looking and running watch...as long as it runs , which is never through the night. This self- winder is going back. Guess I should have known when several hours after ordering Amazon sent me an e-mail saying, "other people buying your watch looked at," Followed by list of winding machines for self winders from 39 to 99.
Summary: I am not a high dollar watch guy, but I do like a durable watch that will keep good time. My taste in watches is pretty broad, but not overly expensive. I have a Casio Pathfinder Fishing watch. For dressy occasions I have a titanium Skagen Ultra Slim from Denmark, and a Swiss made Raymond Weil. Heck I have a Mickey Mouse watch I love. I have used other Casio watches for daily use and worn them out, and have been getting tired of replacing batteries on watches lately.
Summary: I am into watches. I have several watches some really high end watches and some middle of the road. This watch looks, and feels great. I am impressed with how accurate it is for a self winding, automatic. The adjustments for the day and date and independent and intuitive. With all of the above and the super value price below $100, I couldn't help but give a 5 star rating.
Summary: The watch looks better than in pictures, subtel but still quite eye-catching. It's not a luxury piece that people would first pay attention to the watch instead of the owner, it's something that people will suddenly notice and then think 'nice watch...'. Echo the previous reviews, it's pretty small, the band is quite narrow too but should do good on a midsize man. PS: I got it on sale, $55, great value for the money.
Summary: I bought this over the Citizen because it didn't have leather in the band that would start to smell after he got it wet washing his hands. It's a fantastic everyday watch. He even sleeps in it. Seems like it will last him a while, and he couldn't be more pleased with it. I wanted him to have something in between his two dress watches and his huge Suunto that he wears to the field, and subsequently daily over his rose gold Skaagen.
Summary: I've owned this watch for about 6 months and it's an awesome watch. The watch is pretty good at keeping time as long as you don't constantly chase the correct time. When I first got the watch I would set it once a week (lose or gain about a minute per week). Eventually I just stopped setting it; it's been about two months since the last adjustment and the time is spot on. I suppose the watch gains and loses time but evens itself out over time.
