I decided to purchase this automatic watch to avoid having to buy batteries. All of my other watches run by batteries and it seems I am always replacing the batteries. This is a very large faced watch which is what I also wanted. Although, getting use to an "automatic" wind watch has been a challenge since it runs by body movement. So it will stop when you don't wear it. But lucky for me, my husband has a watch winder that holds up to six watches and he has made room for this watch for me. This was a very good buy for the money.

This is a beautiful automatic watch. As all automatics, it is a bit thicker than battery watches due to the need for the perpetual mechanisms. I recently swore off buying any more battery-driven watches as I have many and the battery replacement gets expensive and tedious.
I have had no issues with this watch keeping time. What I do have issues with are people who do not understand what an automatic watch is and claim it is "broken" when they get up and see it has stopped. Automatic watched get their "power" from the movement of your arm and if you do not wear it every day and long enough, you will have to reset it when you put it on next. That is how they all work....so try to become educated to automatics before you buy one. I do not wear my watch every day, so I reset it and wind it a bit when I put it on. It literally takes 30 seconds to do this and the watch is good to go. I like this one as it has both silver and gold elements to match whatever jewelry I choose. So, if you understand the nature of an automatic watch and appreciate a stylish and beautiful one (especially this one with a summer tan) then I highly recommend.
