Looks Great and more expensive
on 8 February 2014
I bought this watch due to it's great looks and very low price. I had no great expectations, even though Seconda manufactures some great quality watches.
The watch comes in a simple yet a smart looking black cardboard presentation case, and includes an "Instruction Guide and 2 year Guarantee" and a paper "Bracelet Gauge".
This watch looks so lively, with a vibrant red and black bezel and classy dial. In fact it looks much better in real life. And I was blown away by the precise second hand alignment with the ticks!! I have not seen such precision from watches costing ten times the price. Maybe I am lucky and have a one off. I have measured any drifting in time over 3 weeks and it still is spot on.
The bezel rotates anti-clockwise producing a solid clicking sound. The watch diameter including the bezel is 4cm, and the watch fascia 3cm.
My wrist circumference is 19.5cm, and I needed to move the adjustment pin 3 notches tighter (1cm) in order to have a comfortable fit, so the Seconda should fit wrist sizes up to 21 cm maximum.
Call me cheap, but I must admit that I really love this watch :)
Update 14th May 14: Another point worthy of mention is the 50m water resistance. I have tested this thoroughly and use it for swimming.
Uploaded a couple of photos to show how it looks on wrist, and precise second arm in relation to tick on dial.
A cheap yet good looking quality watch which functions very well .... and if you have a look at the Rolex Submariner or GMT Master, you might find some similarities (as far as looks go) :)
