Great looking watch, but quality control seems a little lax
on 19 February 2015
I chose this watch because of its looks and simple styling.
The watch arrived pretty quickly, but I soon realised that the item was not new - it had signs of use and was impossible to configure. I immediately arranged for a replacement - I was quite angry about this. Returning the watch was very straightforward and a replacement was soon received. However, there was no apology offered.
This time the watch was obviously new and was a synch to set up. I am now a happy bunny with a great looking watch. Some reviews say that the strap did not adjust far enough for a slim wrist, well, I am very light boned with slim wrists, but was able to adjust the strap enough to get a perfect fit on the last notch on the strap.
One of the previous reviews mentioned that the watch face is only readable in good light - this is true. However, the white dots on the outside of the face are actually luminous. Unfortunately, while it's easy to read the hour positions, the hour and minute hand are not luminous, so it's still impossible to read the time in the dark - this is a mystery - why have the luminous dots and then leave the hands impossible to read in the dark - this is definitely a minus point.
Overall, bearing in mind the first delivery probably being a returned item, and the lack of luminous hands, I can only give this item 3 stars. Such a shame for a great looking watch.
One aspect that slipped my notice until now. The date window on the watch I received is much smaller than the example image featured on the amazon page. This makes it difficult to read.
