Awful value for money, make sure you really, really want one to pay this amount for a plastic clock
on 2 November 2014
You pay for the design not the quality. It is a vastly overpriced cheap plastic clock.
Mine arrived with the second hand rattling around inside the case, I decided it was less hassle to fix it back on rather than return the clock as faulty... Even taking the battery cover off shows it's a standard cheap quartz module the same as you see on budget clocks. Removing the back reveals a low cost plastic mechanism. All in all it's very much style over substance. Inside and out its all thin and cheap plastic.
I do like the mechanical calendar function as it reminds me of clocks I had as a youngster, so I paid for nostalgia and that's why it gets a higher than deserved rating of 2 stars, if I reviewed this product on value it would get a single star.
If you like the look and specifically want this design then you may be able to justify it to yourself. If you think you will be getting a quality product because of the price you will be very disappointed. I'm keeping mine but I'm too embarrassed to tell anyone how much I paid for it; they'll think I'm crackers!
