Mine looks just like the photo! I was pleased with this. It is really easy to set: just pull out the large stem in the middle to adjust the time; press in the other two stems to move the hands around days of the week and days of the month. GMT adjusts automatically with the hour, as does the moon phase. The day and date adjust as well, if the hour is turned past the 12-o-clock marker. The diamonds are brighter than I expected--very pretty. The white numbering and lettering is small and a bit hard to see; you have to turn your wrist to reduce glare from the MOP and crystal, then it is pretty visible. I would say someone with poor eye site may have a tough time reading the small characters. The band is a nice, soft, thick leather. The band smells like quality leather. I have a 6 1/2" bony wrist and the watch looks great on me. The display box is really nice--great for gift-giving! The watch feels heavy on the wrist, which is something I prefer. I am unsure about how many jewels the watch has. I wind mine a few times, once a day--more if I haven't worn it in a few days So far, it keeps accurate time.
I just love this watch. I was afraid it was going to be too big for me, but it was exactly what I had been looking for so I bought it anyway. I'm so glad I did buy it. While it is on the bigger side, I couldn't be happier. I'm female and I have a small wrist too. It isn't a dainty watch, but it is stunning.
I just got my watch and i was so happy. Its stunning! It looks exectly like the image on site even better. its deffenatelly oversised if you looking for a light small watch, but i just love it. Thank you Overstock.com

I ordered this watch because I was tired of buying batteries for my other timepieces. It does not keep correct time as it usually is 10-15 minutes fast. Ladies it is a unisex watch and very large. The dial is beautiful and looks expensive. I, would send it back, but I threw the boxes it came with out too soon. I will wear it occasionally so for the price it is just ok.

Female, 29yrs, 5'10" 140lbs I never take this watch off and get a TON of compliments on it. Best purchase ever made! Is a bigger than some watches but that is the style right now. I love it! And if for whatever reason if you are dissatisfied in any way, O.co will take care of you in a completely "no hassle" way (I know from personal experience). So if you are even considering it, buy it! You will have no regrets. Who doesn't love that???

While I love the look and feel of this watch, I have been tremendously disappointed that it has not perfomed well. I have to reset the time at least 3 times daily, and have not been able to adjust the day/date feature. Sadly, it is going back!

The quality of workmanship on this watch was great with wonderful features. Unfortunately, the watch is just too big for the average woman. I'm a petite woman (5'0" tall) so I looked as if I was wearing a clock! I would have no problem purchasing another Akribos watch if it was MUCH smaller. Because it's a unisex watch, it would be perfect for a male teen or GenYer in my opinion.
The face of the watch is bigger than I care for but it is attractive. It needs winding (yuk) and the date and day dials are rather hard to see. The adjustment buttons stick out too far . It is a pretty watch but one of those things you wear when you go out for the evening or an event. I would not recommend this watch for everyday use.
I am wearing this watch on right now (in gray). I've had it for about 9 months. I have to honest and say that it does run fast. I have to reset it a few times a day. I still wear it because I really do love the watch, even with that issue. I need to replace the black watch (a different model) that I have and am seriously considering buying this black one. That's how much I like it. It is a larger watch on my very small wrist.
I eventually had to return the watch because it kept running fast. Every day I would reset it, and by the end of the day it would be ~10 minutes fast. Beautiful watch, though. Like the other reviews said, it is big. I like big watches, so I was very pleased with the appearance. Overstock customer service was very helpful with the return process, as always!
This is a very nice watch and I really like it. The only reason I wouldn't recommend this to a friend is because I was really looking forward to the Safire blue color face, (which is how it looks in the picture) and the watch came with a more mother of pearl grey tone, which makes it difficult to see the hands because they are silver against the grey. I find I have to move my wrist around to catch a certain light in order to be able to tell the time. The other dials within the watch are kind of a cool feature and make the watch more interesting, but the type on each dial is so small you can't read what they say so it kind of makes them pointless for anything other than looks. All in all I like the watch and the value is good so for that reason I'm keeping it.
The watch was absouletly beautiful! It was an automatic watch which was a plus. I followed the "first time use" instructions to the letter. The watch would run for about 10 minutes and stop. This continued for 2 days. It became apparent that there was something wrong with the watch. I returned it and thought about reordering, but I was afraid that the same would happen.

This is a very beautiful watch. My wrist is very small and the watch just looked a little to big. If not for that, I would have kept it. The case has a very beautiful face. I particularly like the three sundials! I'm very sorry this watch did not fit my wrist, it is beautiful!
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The watch was more striking than the image.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The watch looked to be of very good quality. A nice substantial leather band and the case was very solid.
I was so excited when this watch arrived. It looked more impressive in person than in the picture. However, upon close inspection I found that the hand of one of the small date dials was completely broken off. After reading some of the other reviews I realized this was not the first watch to have this problem - so I returned it without replacing it. I shouldn't have to worry about a brand new watch falling apart.
Love mainly the value and availability of this type of watch. Amazing style and so far it works well. Price is unbeatable.
