Decent but delicate

Summary: I've had this watch for 3 years now. Two years in a mount and the side dial broke off doing nothing spectacular. but 10 bucks at a watch repair shop has fixed that. As far as time keeping, after about a month of so it is normally off by around 5 minutes. Aside from that, I've loved the watch. I love the style and function of it. 5th star would be earned if nothing had broken by this point.
Full of style and hope but short on performance...

Summary: The watch is 42mm and it's finished in a very attractive and eye pleasing rose gold finish. It's a big face watch but they make it work well. The first week I wore it, I got rave compliments from three of my co-workers. Aesthetically it's well designed and ergonomically functional. In terms of performance and accuracy, there's a big gaping hole. Like other reviewers, my particular watch is not very accurate; it loses 25-30 seconds a day.
Summary: I'll say it before and i'll say it again. It seems like the bad reviews are just defending high end expensive watches. After a few hundred dollars you stop paying for quality and you start paying for name recognition. There nothing wrong with that . But don't knock a beautiful and accurate watch like this.
Summary: This watch is quite beautiful. But after only *four* days of wearing it, it stopped working. Just like that! I hadn't banged the thing or anything. Fortunately, I sent it back for a full refund. So disappointing!
Summary: Based on information from its box, they just motivate for positive reviews promising additional year of warranty. Small golden ring and two digits were not glued to clock dial! Worst quality control you can imagine.
Summary: I really like this watch. It has a nice big face, with large numbers. Very easy to read the time. The watch crown is also easy to pull out to adjust the time/date. On a lot of watches, it's a "nailbreaker" trying to pull this out. Love automatic watches. Would definitely purchase again.
Summary: This watch is more beautiful than the pictures. But of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. My watch gains 20 seconds every 24 hours. Multiply that by 365 and you will see it gains 120 plus minutes per year. I was informed my the NY office that this is within the acceptable tolerance for this type of movement. So, if you are looking for accuracy, I suggest you stay away from a mechanical automatic movement.
Summary: Rec'd many compliments while wearing this watch. However, it lost 10minutes per day, so I gave it a week for the automatic feature to "kick in?", then followed AMZN's instx on returning it. Within a reasonable time, I rec'd the 2nd one, which keeps time OK. It has a larger face than I had perceived the online image, but the rose gold colored base apparently attracts attention as unique?
