I love this watch very much. I am physically challenged and have a watch fetish. I have been wearing this now for 2 months. Since then, this has been the only one I wear. I also have a compulsion to buy watches that catch my eye. I first spotted this on my brother's wrist and was impressed by its larger look compared to my other watches. I own over 2 dozen watches but this is the only one I wear now. My watches vary from mechanicals to solar powered. Up until getting this watch I had been struggling with my automatics, which, due to my lack of physical activity, always stopped running after a few days. And all I could do was manually get them moving again by arduously flicking them side to side for over 4 minutes! I had put up with this for 5 years until I finally realized I was wasting my time and energy on these laborious watches when I could just wear a completely maintenance free, quarts watch. this watch was the answer to my problem, watches that required too much physical work. the very large dial facilitates time reading as well as giving me a more stylish and less disabled look. Another advantage of this watch is its very affordable price. This brand, Akribos is now available at ****. Although last year when I purchased it only a few online stores carried it.
Maybe only 4 1/2 stars. This is getting more prevalent now with everything I buy. No directions come with it. Why directions you ask? I was ready to send it back because it date wouldn't work right. Then I thought it may be thinking it was AM instead of PM. I set it again by turning the hands by 12 hours and lo and behold it is working properly now. If it included a small paper on how to set it up I know people would be much more happy. It is a fine watch!
