The watch looks beautiful on the picture but it's really stunning in real, it's polished, looks highclass and the band is comfortable to wear, though the band looks slightly different than on picture, it looks better on picture(maybe cos it's enlarged?), in real it feels that the design on the band is a bit too crammed.

Love the watch but thought the band would be of higher quality. Just seems a little cheap compared the with watch itself.

It is a very interesting watch. We gave this watch to a friend as a graduation gift.

I've bought the Akribos XXIV mechanical skeleton watch for my future husband as a wedding present and I know he's going to love it. The face is totally see through so you can see and really appreciate all the movements of the watch. At this point I do not know if it keeps good time as it's not in use but this watch is bound to get lots of positive comment when my husband starts wearing it. The watch comes in a lovely presentation box that oozes quality. I struggled to get this in the UK at a decent price but was able to order through OVERSTOCK.COM working out £60 cheaper than Amazon.co.uk despite having to pay taxes and international shipping, I must also mention that it arrived within 3 days of ordering - FANTASTIC!!!

I enjoy wearing this watch. I enjoy watching the watch, too. It is still functioning after one month and I hope to have this for a long time. Would be better if the hour and minute hands were a bit more prominent, possibly in size, possibly in an easier-to-see color. However, unit was worth the price. Because of problems reported with Akribos xxiv watches here and on Amazon, I have a two-year warranty which, obvioulsy, I hope I'll never use. So far, so good!

This a full skeleton watch. The intricacies real pop out. This is bound to attract attention without being ostentatious.

It took me over a month for me to choose the perfect skeleton watch for my significant other. It was not too large, and is perfectly suited for any individual in my mind. It is not too dramatic, but the detail of the construction is outstanding a grabs anyones attention. While overstock does not have any images of the packaging, it does also come in a very classy box. I would suggest this unique skeleton watch for anyone. I look forward to purchasing one of my own now as well.

This is a very good looking watch. The skeleton dial is well done and looks god from the front and the back. Runs ans winds smoothly and keeps good time, so far.

I've been searching around for around and found this skeleton design really unique. The back of the watch is also the same skeleton type design. the band is sturdy and the picture DOES NOT do the watch justice. It is a heavy, well made watch. My bf collects watches and he loves this one.

This skeleton watch is something I have been searching out for years. Others have always been expensive. For the price, this is an excellent watch. Very accurate. I only wish it came with a leather band. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this to my friends.

I got this watch for my 16 year old son's birthday. He was thrilled. He has wanted a skeleton watch for a few years and this one is the perfect blend of stylish and sporty. Finally, a great gift for a teen that isn't video game related!

I bought this for myself because it looked great on the website and I was looking for a rectangular skeleton watch. I really like the look and the simplicity of the function. The actual watch is a little brighter than in the picture. I gave it only four stars because I feel the etched waves/swirls on the face actually make it a little more "bling" than you see on the computer screen (mostly when you look at it head on). Otherwise I still like the watch and wear it often.

I purchased this watch just over a week ago. It is very attractive, and I have received many compliments on its appearance. The functional skeleton movement, dual time zones, and day/night indicator are great complications that add to the watch. 2 issues: 1. It was advertised as having an automatic movement, which it does not. It must be wound every day in order for it to function. I don't mind a manual watch, but it was not advertised as such. 2. It does not keep time very well. It loses about 5 minutes every day, which is irritating.

I wanted a watch that was versatile from casual to dressy. This fit the bill. It exceeded my expectations. My boyfriend wasn't sure he liked the skeleton design of the watch, but then received several compliments from people he considers "fashionable" - so now he's confident :) The only thing I wasn't "in love with" was the band. It's a shiny black leather/stamped like alligator pattern. I think it detracts from the classiness of the face/watch - but it can be changed. Overall - great watch at a great price. Impressive look and seemingly great quality.

This Akribos watch is a real work of art with a stunning skeleton dial and elegant curved rose gold case. This watch is really a great piece of art. It is just fascinating to watch as it ticks away the time. Truly a back to the futuristic kind of piece. A very nice timepiece and I have been getting compliments on it wherever I go, and really look forward to wearing it for a very long time.

Bought this watch as a Christmas gift for my son. I collect watches and he's been wearing my Rolex, Movados, and Noblias. So I decided to get him a watch of his own. When it showed up, I was jealous! Lol. He loves it and sees it as a fine watch. The fit and finish are amazing! Thinking of buying a second one to add to my collection. He proudly wears it to the malls and I have to admit, we've compared to some other skeleton watches out there an it is much nicer. His words....

Got this for my 28 year old son as he went into corporate America. Wasn't sure about the rose color bu now I see it is the hotest color out there. It looks beautiful on his skin color and big enough to be notice but not over sized. Nice to see a watch that isn't the standard round and gold or silver. He says every time he wears it he gets compliments. Like the whole skeleton part of tis. Great watch for any age.

I recieved this from my girlfriend as an anniversary gift and I've worn it for about a good solid 2 days now and gotta say, its pretty nice! I was always a skeptic about these Akribos brand watches because of the "deal" you can get on their super inflated prices but now having recieved one it's not that bad at all for the cost (under $***). This watch isn't too big (I like my watches thin) compared to those clunkers you see. Material feels very nice and feels very solid. The gears actually turn and you can hear it working its pretty loud which I think is a good thing. Only downside I can think of first impression is that the blue hands are a little hard to see in the dark against the black. All in all it's a solid, great looking, low budget mechanical skeleton watch. Would most likely buy another myself.

I collect watches so I was looking forward to seeing this watch from fellow NYer's Akribos. Design is superb, solid minimal structure. Slightly cheap plastic wind on the side but not significant. Extremely disapointed however, more so because I think the watch is such a good design, that no care was given either in quality control or quality of finish. The manufacturers name is badly off centre, I'm not even being close to being picky here! Also, the 6 o'clock marker is badly off centre from the outside marker making it look a little silly and when looked at closely a bit badly put together. Come on Akribos, I'm sure you can do better!!! Just take a bit of care when finishing it off!!! If you can get this watch finished properly I'd highly recommend it. One of the best looking skeleton's at this price range.
