I am still tinkering with the mesh watch band. It is an attractive watch but why oh why on God's green earth don't you insist that Akribos include instructions with the watch that shows how to adjust the mesh band? It's beautiful - but tricky.
Watch stopped running only two months -- I guess it already needs a battery. Also, instructions that came with the watch do not tell how to set the date. I emailed the Akribos XXIV site customer service with this question and have never received an answer. If you want a thin watch, this one is thin.
Akribos is known to build cheap and chintzy watches, at *** i wasn't expecting much, liked the face so I bought it & this one will work for a disposable watch ,very lightweight and glass rattles when tapped, poor build quality but it is a" Chinese made watch after all", leather strap is thick and comfortable and color works for a summertime apparel but "just not my thing"..so I changed the strap with a black/white stitching spare I had lying around and my opinion it made the watch "Look Better" and other reviews said it had no Looms and hard to read at night, I found it wasn't the case, surprisingly it does have Looms on all hands, I'll send some pictures *** review since Overstock doesn't have that option??
My husband. really likes this watch its leather and black so it goes with any color and he can wear it with jeans and a teeshirt or when he dresses up for church or other events. It keeps up with the time great and the face of the watch is not so big like most men watches do. He has worn this watch more than any other watch he has had. I will be buying more for the men in my family for Christmas or birthday gifts, or maybe just to get them a decent watch that didn't break my bank. Very reasonably priced
