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. If movement stops, watch must be wound manually.
Case : 40 mm wide x 11.5 mm thick; Strap : 9 in L x 24 mm W
For a company that's relatively new, this is an excellent watch. Akribos is a division of Stuhrling, so if you're on the fence about the quality, you need not worry. The build quality and materials are better than what I expected. It is also simply beautiful to look at. My only complaint was the cheaply made wrist strap, which I replaced immediately. Other than that, an excellent choice!
Directly out of the box, I couldn't get this watch to work. Followed all the winding instructions that came with it, even took it to a jeweller to see if he could figure it out, but no luck. Too bad because it was a great looking watch. Returned for refund.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. poor
The connection between the end of the band and the watch broke within a week. This happened without misuse or rough handling! I feel that the watch is beautifully done and is worth the cost but watch out for quality. Other then the having to buy a new band after many attempts to reattach metal to metal pieces I had no other problems. 2/5 meh.

I get compliments on this watch all the time, 'nuff said.
Somebody mentioned it pinching the hair on your wrist. This is true, although not a big deal. It only happens sometimes. Good watch for the money. I was, however, expecting it to weigh a little more; feel a little more sturdy. No biggie, I'm very careful with my watches anyway.
The watch is stylish and looks cool, but it is a piece of junk. It is supposed to be kinetic (self winds with body movement) and only needs to be wound once every 2 weeks. Not true - it needs to be wound every day and keeps terrible time. It loses up to 3 1/2 hours per week. I would never buy another Akribos XXIV watch.
The product looked good on my (wife) wrist, not my husband's. It is really a pc of jewelry or definitely overstated for my guy. (to him). I liked the look. For the price (retail stated was way off), I think I should have returned it on time. I still have it but it has been 2 yr or less. It just would not stay wound unless you were shaking your wrist to do so all of the time and my biggest problem was that I knocked it off of the bathroom sink ledge and the main spring or something must have broke because it will not wind at all now. Sad. I liked the look on me. but never as a time piece.
This time piece is a real attention grabber! I constantly get comments on it as far as it's unique look. I like that it is an automatic winding mechanism and seldom if ever needs winding... It is very comfortable to wear on my wrist and I forget I am wearing it.
The watch itself is great, looks good and isn't very heavy. Face size is appropriate for an average wrist and mesh band is comfortable. The skeleton feature which is the reason we are all looking at the watch could be better. I do love the watch, however there are not as many working parts that you can see as I originally thought to be. Overall, would still recommend this watch to others and I hope you enjoy your purchase. Shipped in appropriate time as well.
