The good and the bad
10 November 2011
Summary: Good: nice watch movement considering the price, fun to wear, light weight, good size, sapphire crystal, swiss made. Bad: quality appears poor even though it might not be, loud ticking from movement, loud winding from movement, for me it is to small as a fun to wear watch, hard to read dials, poor illumination, plastic case... Hmmm, fake leather strap.
Summary: Phenomenal watch. Especially for the price. $171 for a Swiss automatic chronograph? Are you freaking kidding me? Keeps great time. Everything works perfectly. Nice and light without a cheap feel. Hands down my favorite watch. Highly recommend. No complaints whatsoever.
Summary: The watch looks very nice. A BIG issue however: you will need to have a significant arm activity in order to activate the automatic engine. It really requires a lot of energy to be loaded - and doesn't last very long once you leave the watch (something like 8 hours). Disapointing (as you have to manually reset the time then).
Summary: After 2 months it is still my favorite watch. I own about 20-30 watches and this one is the one I wear the most. I also have the blue and clear version. But this black on silver still looks better than that. I highly recommend this watch.
Summary: As a collector I have always followed Swatch and became a consumer of several of their mechanical models. Years ago I thought it would interesting for Swatch to introduce a mechanical chronogaph but I also figured that such a watch may lie outside the price point that Swatch is known for. When I learned that Swatch finally did make a mechanical chronograph available, let alone at such a reasonable price, I became very interested in acquiring one.
Summary: To get a Swiss automatic chronograph (based on the legendary Lemania 5100) for this price is amazing. Plastic case and some parts are no big deal-this is a bargain. It may not be a rugged everyday watch if that's what you're looking for but it sure fits the bill for a fun, casual timepiece which is stylish and unique. I had to take a star away due to the fact that the dial printing on a couple of prominent numerals was a little sloppy-but only noticeable under a loupe.
Summary: This is the lowest priced auto chrono on the market, and it shows. I can live with a cheap bracelet and case, but the movement was very poor. The chrono triggers are very punchy and do not give a satisfying click. The chrono mechanism was defective, so that each reset wound back the hour counter by 1 (rather than returning to zero). Terrible watch.
Summary: I love this watch. It's very unique since it is the only automatic chronograph of it's kind. The movement is the same movement in some Tissot watches but the style of this watch is very different, probably one of the sportiest automatic chronographs you can get. The case of made of a very hard durable type of plastic which might turn some people off but I've had mine since October and have had no issues with damage or scratches in the case.

Summary: I've received this watch from amazon very quickly in good condition. The watch was in its original big plastic swatch box wich is very impresive though cheap. The watch is very big. Is the largest watch I have ever own but even my wrist is not large it looks very nice somehow. I'm impressed with the quality of this watch. The time keeping is excellent for an automatic. The chronograph functions are perfect. It is easily readable. It's got a sapphire glass on the front.
