Gorgeous Steampunk watch
on 4 May 2015
I have to say that this watch looks so much better in the flesh its highly polished insides gleam in the sunlight, and so far it has kept great time, I have not had to alter it in four days. The strap is a soft leather which is very comfortable to wear, which makes a nice change in these cheap watches.
Although this is an Auto wind watch I still give it half a dozen turns every morning in order to keep it topped up, and so far its been fine.
There has bee some negative reviews but these have been mainly about how the watch runs, and I wonder if its because people aren't sure how to use a mechanical watch. When it first arrives you should fully wind it by turning the crown clockwise until you feel resistance, to set the time you can gently pull out the crown and turn it anti-clockwise which will turn the hands clockwise, you should never turn the hands anti-clockwise as this can damage the watch. If, like me you take your watch off before going to bed its worth giving it half a dozen turns in the morning to keep it topped up.
I have bought a number of these Chinese watches recently and I have to say this is one of the best, its a beautiful accurate timepiece that boasts self-wind, water resistance and a decent leather strap, I only paid £10.00 for this watch, but it would have still been worth the money if it were three times this price.
