Too Green-Too Black

Summary: The photo is unlike the actual watch I received. The face is much greener and the numbers are black instead of the silver shown. I was hoping for a more subtle effect. I returned it with no problems from Amazon.
Summary: Overall the watch is nice. It isn't too large, has a good clean look and the construction seems solid. However, the strap is bad. I returned my first watch because one of the strap fasteners broke after a few days. Now I'm on my second watch and after a couple months, the strap is starting to crack and fall apart. I don't take it on/off frequently and I keep it clean. But it just seems the strap is of poor quality.
Summary: This is just a FYI to anyone thinking of buying this watch. I did, for a number of reason, one of which is I liked the large white numbers on the black face of the watch. Well, when I received the watch, the numbers were not exactly white. The picture above, and others of this model, clearly show white numbers, but the watch I received had goldish, shiny, metallic numbers. I emailed the seller, Kenmar Watches (sold through Amazon), and asked about it.
Summary: This watch is perfect for a casual/classy look. I havent worn a watch in over 10 years, but my wife bought this watch for me for my birthday and I love it. It looks great and keeps accurate time without costing hundreds of dollars. Some people will over spend on an unattractive watch just to show it off, like some sort of status symbol. For the price, quality and look of this watch, I couldn't be more satisfied with the purchase.
Summary: For a $225.00 list price watch, the rubber wrist band is a piece of crap! In about a month's time I had to buy a new leather strap because the one that came with the watch completely broke down. Even more disappointing, when I wrote the company, they didn't even bother to respond. I won't buy another Wenger watch, period!
Summary: i just bought this item as birthday gift for myself its size is too suitable for my thin arm, (it looks as a quite big size, although it is medium) at the picture it appears like there a gray gradient color, but actually it is a little greenish. (that is why it is 4 stars) the strap material looks very elegant, i hope it is durable (after two months of use) the battery is drained.
Summary: I really like this watch. I had gotten away from wearing watches but a situation came up where I needed to start wearing one again. I am a fan of most anything Wenger, my briefcase, some of my pocket knives, and now my watch. The quality is fantastic. The time stays completely accurate and the band is very comfortable. I rather like the size of it, even if it is a little beefy. If I had to replace it, I would replace it with the same item.
Summary: I am a fan of Wenger and I have a few of their watches.This one is x-tra special...sleek like the most expensive sports car...definately realiable as it a Wenger...my only wish is if it were to be thinner...it will certainly look like having a little UFO on your wrist...so cool...
