My boyfriend is not the type to go out and buy himself semi-high-end items. He's had the same watch for years before me and it's just so "high school!" Now that he's a professional/exec, I thought it was important for him to look like a million bucks, and this watch completes the picture.
I chose this watch for a number of reasons but one of which was that the brand is considered middle of the road. It's not super "fine" and overboard, but also not something cheap that'll break in less than a year.
Definitely get this for the "geeky" set, as he loves the "skeleton" aspect of this watch with all of the visible moving parts. I was stuck on deciding between the yellow gold/black combo and this one, but this won out. Who doesn't love some on-trend rose gold?? While some might think it's feminine, I really find that it's more of a masculine coppery look and the bright blue center really sets it off. The brown leather really makes it more casual - the equivalent to "dressing down" an outfit by including flats or sandals rather than heels. (That comparison was to help the ladies out in their decision.)
While the face was a little larger than expected, and my boyfriend is on the skinny side, it really didn't affect the overall look. The leather band really does a great job of making the watch look less chunky.
I had no idea, but this watch is powered by a crank OR by just wearing it! My bf flipped out because if you just wear it each day, you barely have to worry about cranking it. You also don't have to pop batteries in it, etc.
He gets complimented daily on this watch. One server at a restaurant called it "schnazzy" and asked where to buy it.
Seems quite durable thus far. Comes in the fanciest of cases. I'd by a female version of this watch in half a second, and I don't even like wearing them!
the description of this watch says it is hand-wound, but the photos of the back clearly show an automatic winding mechanism, could you please clarify whether or not this is an automatic watch?kalzenith on Dec 6, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello, kalzenith. I'm sorry for the confusion. This is indeed an automatic watch. Thank you for shopping with us. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 6, 2013
Hi there. I purchased this watch for my bf and it does both. This watch provides you with a crank/winder and is also powered by daily movement. Its got the best of both worlds.vatrit on Feb 25, 2014
