Classically Modern Watch... but really Loud
28 January 2012
Summary: I got this for my boyfriend because he had wanted it when it first debuted as an exclusive at Colette. It's a great looking watch if you don't really need to tell the time at any given moment. The black-on-black is sleek (pretty much goes with any outfit) but you really can't read the date unless you're somewhere brightly lit. Also, I had read a review on here that said it ticked really loud. I thought, "C'mon, how loud and annoying can a watch be?
Summary: This is the quintessential SWATCH, simple quality just like my first onie in 1987. I give it ten stars!!! I noticed some people said that it felt light with cheap plastic, but obviously never owned a swatch before. This is built the same as the older ones, and you also ordered black on black, what did you expect? Also noticed people complaining about the date window.
Summary: I have been using Swatchs for 20+ years and always enjoyed the quality and appearance. The black face on this model is so dark that you have to tilt the watch to get enough light to see. No way to ever see date box.
Summary: I like the look and function of the watch, but the black on black date is nearly impossible to read. The designers should have used the gray from the hands to apply the date. As long as you can keep up with what day it is, should be okay.
Summary: I really LOVE the style of the watch. I think it is one of the most stylish, chic watches you can get for under 70 bucks. I ordered it and really liked it however I was a little thrown off with the cheapness feel. I guess it might be a Swatch thing but the face of the watch was already scratched in a couple spots within a day of normal wear. The sides of the watch are made of very cheap plastic that you'd find on a Happy Meal Toy.
Summary: Liked the style of the watch, even though the day/date was virtually unreadable except at an awkward straight-on view in direct light. And the band was very comfortable. For me the killer is that the day would not set after the first day. Plus the watch arrived with no battery cover. However, I have to say that any watch Amazon fulfills is worth a try due to a stellar return policy and system.
Summary: I received a Black Rebel Swatch for Christmas. I love the watch. It's very comfortable and the styling is great. My only complaint is that I can't read the date. No matter how I hold it or what kind of light it just won't show up.
