Summary: I ordered this watch to fulfill the need of both a skeleton and a swatch in my collection. The skeleton movement is not as distracting as I thought it would be, and the ball at the end of the second hand is a nice touch that helps me track the second hand better. I honestly didn't expect anything from the lume on a $130 dollar watch, but I have been pleasantly surprised with my first few tests.
Summary: I read a few articles about automatic and I would recommend you do so as well. One of the articles said that you have to adjust your watch frequently because it is not as accurate as a quartz watch. I really don't think this is much of a problem. I probably adjust my watch about once a week, and it is usually only off by a little bit.
Summary: It's smaller than it looks on the pics!! If it was a 5mm larger it would be the perfect watch. When I just received it, I thought it was a chick's or kid's watch. I'm getting used to it's size now. It looks really cool, it's shinny and attracts attention. Este reloj se ve grandioso y la caja de Swatch es ideal para ponerlo en exhibición. Tomen en cuenta que en vivo el reloj es más pequeño de lo que parece en las fotos.
Summary: Worth the $ spent. Longtime skeleton swatch fan. Lots of compliments and well built. All three hands glow when exposed to light. No reference marks for #'s on dail execept for tiny dots for 12 3 6 & 9 on bezel. Did have to have a couple of links removed from band for a better fit done by any jeweler. Even the back of the watch is transparent. Very cool and would buy again.
Summary: I read the other reviews, and I can tell that most people buy this watch because it is stylish. While that is not a bad reason, you should have full disclosure. A) This is an automatic, mechanical (not quartz) watch. They are inherently less accurate than quartz. This is the technology we had before quartz burst on the scene in the 1970s. As a result, expect that it can be off by as much as 30 seconds per day.
Summary: Bought a Body and Soul "special" edition, of course more expensive and in Europe. Lasted about 2 years. It says 30 meters, but the crown is not screwed down. Once in a while there is rain. The crown eventually froze and when trying to turn it broke off. I loved my swatch, it was beautiful, wouldn't have traded it for the more expensive automatics.
Summary: I love the look of skeleton watches, and I've looked at every single kind, and this one is probably the best one for the price. A lot of other skeleton watches here on Amazon are designer watches that are made in China, not the excellent Swiss craftsmanship that you get with this watch. This is a mechanical watch, which means it is nowhere near as accurate as a quartz watch. Mine gains a few minutes every month, but that's OK...
