I bought this Kadloo as it is an obvious homage to one of my favorite high end piece, the Breitling Superocean Heritage. At 38mm, it is one of my smaller watches, but it has wonderful wrist presence. As noted, this model actually has 20mm lugs for those interested in trying out other bracelets and straps for it. The Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement is spot on, and features a decorated rotor with the Kadloo logo on it. In the first week of ownership, mine has only ran about 8 second fast over 7 days (very good for any automatic). The leather bracelet is good quality, and it has a nice butterfly deployment clasp. I found that it does not hold as well as I like, but is still nice on a watch at this price point. The fit and finish of the watch case is fantastic. The dial is classy and simple with an easily read date window at the 6 o'clock position. I have two very minor gripes regarding this model: 1. the hour/minute hands are the only lumed areas of the watch. They say they use high quality Superlumionva, but on mine it does not last very long. 2. Size. I really wish they would do this model in a larger size. 42mm case would be a perfect sweet spot for myself. In all, this is a fantastic watch for the price. You will rarely see any watch with a real Swiss ETA movement for less than $$$, and at under $$$ this watch is an outstanding deal.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Exact.
- How accurate was the sizing? Strap size is listed wrong. This model has 20mm strap/lugs, not 18mm.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well above what I expected.
Very pleased and excited about the look and feel of this watch. Definitely matches a luxury timepiece. It is a tribute to the Breitling Superocean Heritage 46mm version. Although styled after the Heritage, it is smaller at 39mm which is acceptable for most people compared to 36mm size of Rolex Datejust or Submariner at 40mm. I did some research on the Mediterranee and found a lot a similarities with the Heritage. It uses 316L stainless steel, coin edge bezel, sapphire crystal, 200m water resistance, screw down crown, same dial hands and the big deal, the ETA movement is the same used in the Breitling Caliber 17 in the Heritage. There are some differences of course, but I like the diamond cut baton indexes on the dial that catch the light. I added a mesh bracelet to more closely resemble the Heritage. The bracelet needed is 20mm not the 18mm in the description. The leather strap is not a shortcoming since it is of high quality with an upscale deployment clasp. My specific movement gains 5 seconds every 24 hours which helps me stay on time. One thing, it does not glow in the dark very well so stay out of the closet.
