well, all the reviews i read before i bought the watch are accurate. it does look brownish when it comes and it is a good value for the appearance and pre-sale. now, the problem is, i bought it recently within a few months and the watch stopped working correctly. at first i thought it was a battery issue so i had it replaced. but it wasn't. the hands on the clock act funny when it reaches the 11 on the dial. so it is behind about 10 secs every time it acts up. it doesn't always do this, but occasionally it will cause it to be hrs behind after too long. so i'm going to get it repaired because i got the protection plan. i will update when i get it back on how it works then.
