I purchased this watch because of it's unique design and great reviews. When I opened the box, I was overwhelmed with disappointment. Don't get me wrong, the watch is absolutely gorgeous however the band and case is really large. Too large for a small to average man's wrist. This would look fantastik on a tall, average to large sized man or one with a large bone structure. Unless of course he prefers a big, bulky watch that looks HUGE on his arm! I am sending it back for another that is similar in appearance but hopefully with a smaller case. I hope this helps someone else in their decision to buy it. It's very difficult to purchase an item like this when you can't see it in person.
I AM RETIRED AND MY WIFE SAID I NEEDED A HOBBIE. I LIKE WATCHES SO DECIDED I WOULD COLLECT WATCHES. I AM MOST HAPPY TO HAVE THIS AUGUST STEINER IN MY COLLECTION. THE ROSETONE COMPLEMENTS THE BLACK BAND WITH IT'S WHITE STITCHING. KEEPS GREAT TIME, NEVER MISSES A MINUTE. WARES WELL BOTH CASUAL OR DRESS.IT'S A INTERESTING WATCH SINCE IT'S A CHRONOGRAPH.

I like it, but ther are some cons. Pros - trendy; beautifully made to impress with somewhat quality external materials; good size (don't think it is as large as other buyers said); good price; beautiful details and colors; works well - don`t say it will last; good chronograph; very nice bracelet. Cons - small dials are not so easy to read at all as the advertising figures induce you to think; small date dial is absolutely useless; presentation box poorly made, which makes you think twice before making a gift of it; not a hint about it's parts origin
I HAVE ALWAYS WORN SWISS MILITARY WATCHES.....I SAW THIS WATCH AND GAVE IT A TRY AS A "CASUAL WEAR WATCH"....WOW!! I ....LOVE IT!! WEAR IT FOR , CASUAL, BUSINESS, EVERYTHNIG! IT IS...GRREAT LOOKING, CLASSY AND I HAVE GOTTEN COMPLIMENTS! AWESOME!
Recently I was searching for a large dial watch to determine if I would like the style. I discovered the August Steiner Men's Rosetone Case Quartz Chronograph Watch and thought I would give it a try. When the watch arrived I knew that I had made the right decision. The watch looks and wears OUTSTANDINGLY. I have had many complements on the watch and its appearance. In fact, I was so impressed with the watch that I have purchased a second watch and given it as a gift. You can not go wrong with this watch.
I purchased this watch for my husband's friend's birthday present. He LOVED it! It is a very attractive-looking watch - not like what you see everyone else wearing. The copper or "rosetone" color is very nice, and the watch is very masculine and will look good for every-day wear, as well as a more formal look. Shipped very quickly.
I'd been looking for a watch with a rosegold face, and finally decided on this one. My wife likes it too, and next to a Tissot I own, it's the nicest looking watch I've owned. It's the first one with the mini-dials.The face is easy-to-see, and the design a pleasure to look at. The price is excellent, because after hunting for about a year for a rosegold faced watch, I know just how expensive watches like this can be, I'm new to its Timing features, and probably won't use them.These seem appropriate for timing a race, and can even include timing different contestants in the same race - a nice feature that pauses the stopwatch action for a contestant then picks it back up for the next contestant by catching up the missing time the watch was paused to look at the result. In fact, there's a "timeout" feature that allows you to "add" up times. You can time something, pause, then continue the time and only count the amount of time that the watch hand moves. So, if you've clocked something at 5m3seconds, and need to pause for say, 10 seconds, the watch can pick up at 5m 4 seconds, excluding the 10 seconds.None of the timings beep. My mainstay watch is a TImex Expedition which has features I'd use if they were in this watch: a beep tone on the hour, an alarm clock that beeps, and an illumination to see your way round in the dark. That would make this watch perfect. I've only had the watch for a month, so durability rating is unknown. So far, excellent !My one real complaint is that the instructions completely ignore the timing functions, and I had to talk to Overstock support to figure out the functionality. Another reviewer reported the same thing. The instructions only tell how to set the time. Overstock very quickly sent me "The Instructions" and they were the same as in the case, and were of no help. Phone support was able to explain the tachymeter functions. I use this watch for special outings, and am proud when others notice it. Very happy with it!
Simply put, this is a beautiful watch. I just got it so I can't speak of its quality, but it appears to be very well made. It has a full size/weight feel & the rose gold color really stands out. The watch band is nicely padded and very attractive. All in all, I'm very happy & I purchased it at a killer price!
