Summary: This is a nice watch, no doubt. But it was not as pictured, or described. The watch face which looks like a nice dark blue on the picture, actually turned out to be a grey blue, almost purplish. Not attractive at all to me. Also the description says deployment clasp with push button. That is not what comes on this watch, which would have been great, instead it's just a buckle.
Summary: The watch is very nice, the strap is made of leather but looks like alligator or crocodile skin. It is nice if formal is your thing. What surprised me most is the day of the week and # display on the watch. The days of the watch are in English and Spanish, rotating between one language and the other (Monday,Lunes,Tuesday,Martes...)Nowhere does it say in the advertising that this watch is bilingual and I find it quite inconvenient when trying to set the day.
Summary: If you're looking for something simple and relatively inexpensive this is the right watch to have. The watch face is easy to read and looks superb. It's solar so no worries about winding it or having the battery die, as long as you wear it every now and again it keeps running. While the band could be a little better, for the price it's still very good and a band isn't difficult to replace regardless.
Summary: What do you want for $100? This is a fantastic value. A solar watch with a leather band. It works great. I've had mine for about a year now, and it hasn't skipped a beat. This isn't a casual watch. It is an understated tasteful watch that looks impeccably appropriate with a black, grey, or blue suit. If you ever find yourself in that sort of attire, go for it. Compared to other solar watches, the case isn't at all bulky. Day and date are easy to read.
Summary: I bought this watch from amazon from a seller who is based in USA & item shipped to UK. I had to pay custom charge which was not refunded by the seller. I used the watches few times only until it stopped working within three months without any obvious reason. Please do not buy this watch and waste your money.
Summary: Purchased this watch for my boyfriends birthday. even though there was a small issue with delayed delivery the company fixed it very quickly. It looks much more expensive than it is, and has space on the back for an engraving. Great present, he loved it.
