4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Looking Gunmetal Watch, 3 May 2011
This review is from: Golana Aqua Pro Black Swiss Made Divers Men's Watch AQ140-4 (Watch)
First thing is it looks very nice, although it is a little darker than what it looks like in the pics above, i was looking for a gunmetal grey/silver and this is the closest ive been able to find at the sub 500 mark. A nice chunky watch in weight and size, so some people might find it difficult to wear under their shirt, not a problem for me.

Only 1 problem I have with the watch was that the date changed over at 0100hrs/1 AM in the morning! Amazon contacted the manufacturer and emailed me with their reply:
"the tolerances is between 10 minutes, which means the calendar should jump 10 to 12 or 10 past 12, or 10 to 1 or 10 past 1."

Also within the manufacturers reply was the following, but i have no idea what they are on about!!!:
"The watch maker general way to set the calendar is, that if the date is changing within 1 hour, you normally set the hands in order to start the calendar change after 12 o'clock that the calendar has completely changed at 1 o'clock if you have a click change you set the hands in order to start the change latest 10 minutes before or after 12 o'clock"

So i originally bought this watch and returned it for this reason, BUT it was so nice a watch i thought I'd buy it again and hope i got one that didn't have the date change issue, except i wasn't so lucky. HOWEVER despite this on buying the 2nd time i have decided to keep it. I've had it 5 months and it keeps time superbly, the gunmetal finish still looks like new (so its robust, and i wear it every day), and even a few knocks on the glass face haven't caused a scratch. In addition there are numerous adjustment point allowing finer tuning of fitment without requiring the need for adding/removing links, i anticipate i'll need to loosen it for summer when my wrist circumference is a little larger. I really want to give it 5 stars, but cant because of the date change issue which for me now is insignificant.
