All measurements are approximate and may vary slightly from the listed dimensions.
Men's watch bands can be sized to fit 7.5-inch to 8.5-inch wrists.
This watch is powered by automatic movement which means the winding of the spring occurs automatically when the wearer moves his arm. However, it is recommended that you manually wind the watch at least once every two weeks. It is also important to adjust the time once a month as automatic movement can gain or lose a few minutes per month.
Case : 48 mm D x 13.5 mm W; Strap : 9 in L x 24 mm W
At first i wanted the 'Davinci' model, but instead i purchased this item. It's my first automatic (unlike the 'davinci') watch, and i love it. it's simply a piece of art on your wrist. the bottom of this watch is equally attractive, if you ever get to take it off, whic you won't for the first week. Only other way to improve on this exact design, would be to add luminous dials.
I love everything about the aesthetics of this watch. The hand and gear movement is very nice. Band is easily adjustable and comfortable. As another reviewer noted, having a luminescent dial would have been useful, but oh well.
The one big complaint I have was that the watch stopped working a couple weeks after I received it. After reading reports of Akribos' customer service being terrible, I found a local company that was able to repair it for $30. The repairman mentioned one of the hands was falling off the center post (I saw someone else had this problem too).
After getting it repaired, I have had no more problems with it. It is my daily wearer.
This is a beautiful watch. Great value. As a watch collector I am very happy with this purchase. It doesn't need a battery. Just wear it and it winds itself. Very tired of putting on a watch only to find the battery is dead. You'll never have that problem with this one. I have many watches and love the fact this one doesn't need a battery. Totally recommend.
Cool design & choice of materials, colors, & textures. The skeleton design is eye catching & gets many compliments. However, I'm not a big fan of the automatic winding feature & function. Unless you want this watch for daily wear rather than formal wear, I found the watch stopped between uses. Also the instructions supplied were minimal at best. There was no indication as to how much or often it should be wound. I have a collection of watches so I don't always wear the same watch & that means every time I want to use this one I have to set & wind it. Otherwise this watch is very cool & the Overstock.com price seems fair, but I would never pay the advertised retail price for this watch.
My wife gave me this watch as an anniversary present earlier this month. I love the watch, it is quite beautiful and just what I was looking for. I have had two problems, first the band broke and second the watch has stopped self winding. I was able to find a replacement piece for the band and have it working so I still wear the watch daily. Every morning I wind the watch by hand because the self winder doesn't.
If I didn't have these two problems with the watch it would be the ideal watch for me. I have called *** and left them a voice mail and have left them a message on their site. So far it's been two weeks and no response from them. Please call me or email me *** as I love the watch but want a working one.
